S-league Preview

Last week Preview - Got 2 right and 5 wrong

Home United vs Gombak United

The Protectors are on a roll and they could win this one. The Bulls are tough but they are beatable and the Protectors have the players to do that. If they are indeed still aiming for the championship, then there is no excuse why they do not go for it at this point. With only about a third of the season to end, they have no choice after their terrible start to the season. 2-1 to Home United

Etoile FC vs Albirex Niigata (S)
The French side are on a roll and they have managed to retain a number of their key players. Therefore, all the White Swans can hope for is a off-day in front of goal by the French strikers like the last time they met. It tough considering the current circumstances and the French could walk away with all three points. 2-0 to Etoile FC

Woodlands Wellington vs SAFFC
The Warriors attack main problem as I have mention is Indra is their top scorer. He is still a good player but no longer a 25-goal player and every championship team need that. As for their new Uruguayan striker, the less I write the better. He is a FLOP. For Erwan Gunawan, no disrespect to him but if the Warriors depend on him, then they will be closer to their opponent than Etoile FC. They need a 25-goal man and Richard Bok have to find him next season. 3-0 to the soon-to-be-dethroned Champions

Tampines Rovers vs Sengkang Punggol
If the Stags cannot defeat the Dolphins then their title hopes are really over. But is it even possible for the Dolphins do even snatch a point from this game? In dreamland, maybe. The squad of the Dolphins is nothing compare to the Stags and the Eastern giant have no right not to collect all three points on offer. 3-0 to the Stags

Beijing Gouan (S) vs Young Lions
After a brilliant period where they collect all the points available, the Cubs are starting to drop points. They are drawing too many games at this point and this could be yet another draw. There look nothing to separate both sides. 1-1 draw

Geylang United vs Balestier Khalsa
The Eagles are still a tough nut to crack. But with Rivaldo, I always believe the Tigers will have a chance to win. The Eagles do not fully utilise Peter Tomko like the Tigers with Rivaldo. That why the Eagles have only score 20 goals compared to the 27 goals for the Tigers. One need goals to win and the Tigers have it in them. 2-1 to the Tigers
