S-league Preview

Last week Preview - 0 right and 3 wrong with 1 undecided

Home United vs Geylang United
The Protectors have fallen once in their championship charge and it appear to have cost them dearly. The title is not in their hand once again just one week after it was in their hand when they defeated Etoile and Tampines falter against Young Lions. Now, they cannot do anything except do what they have been doing mostly for the last 14 matches - Win or burst. And the Eagles are no match for them. 3-1 to Home United.

Sengkang Punggol vs Albirex Niigata (S)
The Dolphins are enjoying some good form now and yet strangely enough I fancy the White Swans due to that. The reason is the White Swans like to play teams who are not as defensive-minded and with recent results, Aide will surely not be asking his team to pull back as their fans will hear none of it. Another reason is the White Swans do well against teams hovering around them in the league table with no defeat from their meeting with Woodlands Wellington, Sengkang Punggol or Beijing Gouan (S) and they collect 4 of their 5 wins this season from them. But since it is at Hougang, I will opt for the draw. 1-1 draw

Woodlands Wellington vs Tampines Rovers
No excuse. The Rams must fall and Tampines Rovers cannot hide if they fail this assignment. They do not even need Khariul Amri for the job as they already have the personals for it. Win or burst now. 3-0 to Tampines Rovers.

Etoile FC vs Balestier Khalsa
The start of the championship charge for Etoile. The Tigers are no easy prey this year but they can be taken down. Indeed once and if the French take the lead, one can see no way back for the Toa Poyah side. This is not underestimating the Tigers but they lacked the strength and abilities to challenge Etoile FC in such a situation. 1-0 to Etoile FC
