Rams can clip Eagles' wings
Courts Young Lions v Warriors
(Tonight, 7.30pm, Jalan Besar Stadium)
Congratulations to the Young Lions, who recorded their first win of the season by beating point-less Harimau Muda B despite finishing with just nine men.
But, with key centre back Sheikh Abdul Hadi suspended, they will crash back to earth against the high-flying Warriors, unless they can keep a leash on Miroslav Pejic and Nicholas Velez, who combined for 12 of their teams' 15 goals.
- Take Warriors on 1X2 and 1/2 goal and over 2.5 goals.
Harimau Muda B v Hougang
(Tonight, 8.45pm, Pasir Gudang Stadium)
After a promising start that saw them go unbeaten against five of last season's top-six teams, the Cheetahs have gone off the boil with two narrow defeats by Geylang International and Brunei DPMM.
They will be keen to get back to winning ways. Which better team to play than the Young Tigers, who look woefully out of depth in the S.League after eight straight defeats?
The hosts have the worst attack and defence (5-25) and they are unlikely to improve on either category this week.
- Take Hougang on 1X2 and 1/2 goal and over 2.5 goals.
Tanjong Pagar v Tampines
(Tomorrow, 7.30pm, Jalan Besar Stadium)
Okay, the Jaguars looked terribly toothless as they slumped to a 4-0 loss against Home United last week.
But Tampines are not exactly firing on all cylinders, losing two of their last three league games - 4-2 to Hougang and then 2-1 to Woodlands - to allow DPMM to overtake them at the top of the table.
What's more, they are still smarting from their AFC Cup defeat by Nay Pyi Taw on Tuesday.
If Tanjong Pagar need a pick-me-up, this could be it.
Still, the Stags have scored in every league match, so a draw looks likely.
- Take draw and over 2.5 goals.
Brunei DPMM v Balestier
(Tomorrow, 8.15pm, Hassanah Bolkiah Stadium)
The Tigers' decline in form has been startling. After collecting seven points from their first three matches, they are now winless in their last five.
Meanwhile, DPMM have gone from strength to strength and boasts the league's best attack and defence (20-4).
Interestingly, three of the four goals they've conceded were at Bandar Seri Begawan, and that should give Balestier some hope of nicking a goal there.
But that may be Balestier's only consolation.
- Take DPMM on 1X2.
Geylang v Woodlands
(Saturday, 7.30pm, Bedok Stadium)
Geylang have looked almost unbeatable ever since Jorg Steinbrunner took over.
But then, nobody saw Woodlands' upset of Tampines coming either, and certainly none of our tipsters here, nor any of you in the Football Kaki's Pick the Score contest. All good things must come to an end, not least Geylang's five-match unbeaten run.
I'm going to make a huge call here and take the Rams to clip the Eagles' wings this week.
- Take Woodlands to win.
Albirex Niigata v Home United
(Sunday, 7.30pm, Jurong East Stadium)
Other than Woodlands beating Tampines 2-1, last week's other shock result was the White Swans' 4-0 whitewash by Warriors FC.
Unfortunately for Albirex, they meet another team bang on form this week.
As their attacking players return from injury, the Protectors are rediscovering their touch - they have collected 13 points out of a possible 15 in their last five games, scoring 14 goals.
The defence has also improved drastically, with just three goals conceded over the same period, and Albirex have it all to do to even get a point from this.
- Take Home United to win.
