S-league Preview IV - 3 right and 2 wrong

Mon 14-Mar Hougang United - Courts Young Lions (HGG)
Tue 15-Mar Gombak United - Geylang United (JWS)
Thu 17-Mar Albirex Niigata (S) - Etoile FC (JES)
Thu 17-Mar Balestier Khalsa - SAFFC (TPY)
Fri 18-Mar TPUFC - Home United (JBS) 

Hougang United vs Courts Young Lions
Let hope Aide focus on the real problem of this team (not the ball) and that is his squad is not as good as he really believed. If he believed, with a different ball, he can matched up to the Big 3 and Etoile FC then it is asking for the sky. But this team is good enough to take on the Cubs and win as goals are needed for wins and his team can score. It is the second best scoring team, outside the Big 3 and Etoile FC, behind Albirex Niigata (S) and 6 of the White Swans goals came from 2 games. 3-1 to Hougang

Gombak United vs Geylang United
The Eagles need to find their fourth forward soon. Masrezwan Masturi, Hafiz Rahim and Rizawan Abdullah are not the solution as I only see them getting double figures if we combined all their goals. Masrezwan Masturi is the best of the second range of strikers in the National Team due to his technical ability, as I wrote before, but his weakness is his finishing. He has only hit double figures twice in his career and Geylang United need a forward who can get goals on a regular basis. 2-0 to Gombak United 

Albirex Niigata (S) vs Etoile FC 
The White Swans need a win after their recent defeats and their problems at home but they will not have it here. The French need the points as their poor start mean they need to get as many points to stay in the championship race until their team finally adapt to Singapore. If not, by then, they will be far behind and it will mean little to have gel as they will need a miracle to get back into the championship race. 3-1 to Etoile FC

Balestier Khalsa vs SAFFC
The Tigers are a tough side to beat and whether the Warriors can walk away with all 3 point depend on Mislav Karoglan. The Bosnian is looking increasing like the forward the Warriors were looking for last season and if he played to his potential, the Warriors can breach the Tigers backline. Then I can see the Warriors holding out as let be honest, a swan does not make a summer so the chance the Tigers can score on a regular basis is still a doubt. The Tigers can defend but score..... I seriously doubt it. 2-0 to the Warriors.    

TPUFC vs Home United
This match is forgone conclusion even if you are the most optimistic Jaguars ever. It is only keeping the scoreline down and whether the Jaguars can get another goal. That is all that will matter to Jaguars as they continue to hope for a good season on their return. 5-1 to Home
