Albirex get revenge in Starhub League Cup

Albirex Niigata (S) reach the Starhub League Cup semi-final as they gained revenge against Home United.

The Protectors had earlier in May knocked out the White Swans in the Singapore Cup and now the Japanese had done the same to them in the League Cup.

Ismail Yunos gave the Protectors the lead in the first half and it appeared to be enough as the clock wined down before Shingo Suzuki scored from the spot with 10 minutes to go.

There was no separating them after that even in extra-time so it went to spot kick and Albirex won it 7-6 as Home scorer Ismail missed his kick.

Home United
Shahril Jantan GK (C), Noh Rahman, Juma'at Jantan, Ismail Yunos, Sirina Camara, Jordan Webb, Firdaus Idros (Choi Jae-Won Choi 46'), Masrezwan Masturi (Syahiran Miswan 68'(Aliff Shafaein 95')), Nor Azli Yusoff, Hafiz Rahim, Song Uiyoung
