S-league Preview

S-league Preview - Got 3 right with 1 perfect score and 3 wrong while 1 result is not out yet.

Gombak United vs Albirex Niigata (S)
The Bulls usually fall to such sides but I do not think so for this match. The White Swans are in the bottom 3 'fighting' for the Wooden Spoon for a reason and that is they suck. One can debate for hours on the reasons behind it but one is for sure, this season they are cannon-fodders for many teams and Gombak is one of them. 2-0 to the Bulls

Balestier Khalsa vs Young Lions
Away from the Cubs Den of Jalan Besar, the Tigers will have their chance to revenge the 3-0 defeat earlier in the season. The Cubs do well at the Cub Dean with 4 of their 5 victories there but with only 1 win away all season, the Tigers must know the Cubs can be taken on. But without Rivaldo, who is suspended, they have to depend on a padlock defence, the Tigers though are still more than a match for the Cubs at the Tiger Den of Toa Poyah. However without Rivaldo goals a 1-1 draw will do.

SAFFC vs Sengkang
The Champions need a side who they can beat the hell out of now. They got it as the Dolphins are coming to Choa Chu Kang and no other results will be accepted other than a win and a convincing one at that. Indra need 2 more goals to get 200 domestic goals and surely with the Dolphins leaking goals, he will seek it out. 4-0 to SAFFC

Home United vs Woodlands Wellington
Let me repeat, Assistant Lee is still in charge and Home have no chance (Even against a bottom 3 side) in any matches in the Great Eastern-Yeo's S-league. After all, we are going to play a striker play as a defender and a defender as a striker under the genius of Assistant Lee. 2-1 to Woodlands Wellington

Etoile FC vs Tampines Rovers
Earlier in the season, this was a 1-1 draw and this may be the outcome again. At this point, neither side have to take any risks yet as there are still 18 rounds to play and enough points for both to gain or to lose. The title will be not decided by this match so why risk it all now. 1-1 draw

Young Lions vs Gombak United
Back at the Cubs Den, the Young Lions must be respected and the Bulls will have a tougher time winning this round after they had won earlier in the season 2-0. But the Bulls still have a tough defence to fall back on and the Cubs may not be able to break it down. A stalemate could be the outcome. 0-0 draw.

Beijing Gouan (S) vs Balestier Khalsa
The pitch at Yishun have not been fixed and matches played there will always be a mudbath. Luckily, the Tigers have Rivaldo and he only need one chance to get the goals. There is good enough for me. 1-0 to the Tigers

Albirex Niigata (S) vs SAFFC
After Sengkang Punggol as the opening dish this week, the Champions will find their second dish as delightful. They are getting the White Swans for the Friday Live game and as written before, there is a reason why they are bottom 3 materials this season. They have to win and again, it must be convincing. Indra must also, surely, get the goals either against the Dolphins or the White Swans to seal the deal on his 200 domestic goals. 3-0 to the Champions

Woodlands Wellington vs Geylang United
The Eagles have flown high for 2 months and they are getting a 'rest'. Unfortunately, they have landed on the wrong place and there are many predators who are feeding on their meat. The Rams are a vegetarian group but one do not think they mind feeding on the Eagles. Mike Wong have to show the last 3 defeats were a blip (And if it were a blip it was sure a big blip) not the start of something worse thus a fourth defeat will surely seal it. 3-1 to Woodlands Wellington
