S-league Preview

Last week Preview - Another slaughter as once again only 1 right and 4 wrong (The Eagles are rescuing me so maybe they are my lucky charm)

Young Lions vs Sengkang Punggol
Back on their own pitch at Jalan Besar, the Cubs must be favourite especially when they are up against the free-falling Dolphins. The Dolphins have suffer 3 defeats on the trot now so the Cubs must be feeling confident they can win this one and one believed they should as they are scoring while the Dolphins are having a tough keeping them out. 3-1 to the Cubs

SAFFC vs Beijing Gouan (S)
The Champions are focusing much of their energy on ACL judging how well they are doing there but, by now, Richard Bok must have told them the League is equally important if they want to play in ACL next year. Another defeat like the Young Lions game and they will be handing the crown to Tampines Rovers. Games against the likes of Beijing must be won. 3-0 to SAFFC.

Albirex Niigata (S) vs Etoile FC
The White Swans are starting to get the results and their players must be feeling good now. With their morale high, they may shock an Etoile FC side who have won only once in 5 matches. It may happen with a good crowd behind the Japanese at Jurong East. 2-1 to the White Swans.

Gombak United vs Home United
Two sides who one cannot trust and that why they are falling behind in the title race. They are just too inconsistent to mount any title challenge. The Bulls fall apart when the pressure is them while Home is just falling apart. However, Home will still be favour as Shahril Ishak should be back and he should inject the needed strength to their attack against a Bulls side who cannot score regularly. 2-1 to the Protectors

Young Lions vs Beijing Gouan (S)
Their second match in 4 days. Both sides will be 'forced' to relied on their squad strength and the Cubs are basically the Under 23 National team so should be 'stronger' in that department. That why I see the Cubs winning their fourth match in 5 matches. 2-1 to the Cubs

Balestier Khalsa vs Sengkang Punggol
If the Dolphins do not get anything against the Cubs then I fear this match, against the Tigers, have come too soon for them. It will not be good for them to be playing against a Tigers side who are well-rested and, if, at full strength with the likes of Rivaldo etc, the Tigers will be too strong. 3-1 to Balestier Khalsa.

Etoile FC vs SAFFC
The French team up against the Champions and it will be test of their title ambitions to see if they can take on the best of the best. It may be another draw for both appear, at this point, to be evenly matched in their strength. 2-2 draw.

Tampines Rovers vs Geylang United
The Stags are back in action after a long break and they get the Eastern Derby. However, one should back the Stags as they are too strong for the Eagles and it should be no surprise as the Stags have won 16 of their previous 17 Derby matches. That tell us everything we need to know. 3-1 to the Stags.
