S-league Preview

S-league Preview - 4 right with 1 perfect score and 4 wrong

Gombak United vs Balestier Khalsa
Go Tigers. That my belief for this match. Yes, Rivaldo will always be a concern on whether he take to the field but the Bulls have a scoring problem as their Koreans are nothing compared to the Africans they had. This show where Darren should look next season when he seek new foreigners. But, let not lost focus and as long as Rivaldo take to the field at some point in the game, the Tigers can edge this one. 1-0 to the Tigers

Tampines Rovers vs Albirex Niigata (S)
The Stags should extend their lead at the top after this match as the White Swans cannot compete at all levels with the Stags and this time Khariul may not even have to be the hero. 3-1 to the Stags.

Sengkang Punggol vs Etoile FC
The Dolphins are not a great team but they may stand a chance as the French side are inconsistent. The Hougang side though have to build a Great Wall defence with their attack are not actually brilliant. That may be a problem for their defence is not watertight. So the French may win it by a goal. 1-0 to Etoile FC

Young Lions vs Home United
Can the Protectors win this one. They should but they may end up not doing that yet again. Under Lee, the Protectors can claim to have lost twice in the league and that is not much worse than previous season but looking more closely, we see they have won only twice as many. The draw are killing them and that where Lee is failing the Protectors. He is leading them to too many draw so here one more. 1-1 draw.

Tampines Rovers vs Gombak United
With them underdogs again, will the Bulls stand up. They may but the leaders are a different kettle this season and the Stags can defeat the Bulls who may have a problem even breaching the Stags defensive wall to do any damage. On the other hand, even with a watertight defence, can the Bulls stop the 3 musketeers - Qiu Li, Khariul and Duric - of Tampines Rovers. 2-0 to the Stags

Balestier Khalsa vs Geylang United
The Tigers should be confident of even defeating the in-form team of the moment, Geylang United. The Eagles are winning their matches but let be honest and admit that they are not doing that playing brilliantly. So they do give their opponents a chance and with Rivaldo and a better defence this season, the Tigers can take advantage. However, we should not belittle the in-form team of the moment and the Eagles have shown they can shut out teams themselves. A tough one so a 2-2 draw then

I dont think tampines' defence is watertight without hassan sunny. The prime league keeper doesnt give the defenders or the team any confidence at all. As soon as he came on, tampines conceded against geylang, and to concede 2 goals against balestier tells you how watertight the defence is.
