PSS Sleman and PSIS Semarang could be relegated from the Indonesia Super League's Premier Division after scoring five own goals in a match to decide their opponents in the play-offs, the country's football association, PSSI, has said. Hinca Pandjaitan, the chairman of the PSSI's disciplinary committee, said that the teams had been disqualified from the competition and that they could expect even tougher sanctions if evidence of match-fixing was uncovered, reports The Guardian.
The incident is the latest blow to soccer in Indonesia, where warring factions left the country with two national teams and two domestic leagues at one point in 2012.
Fifa threatened the Asian nation with suspension unless they sorted out the problems and a truce was eventually reached with the leagues, national teams and separate football associations agreeing to unite.
