Lion City Sailors
Lion City Sailors are hoping to win again following the 1-3 S League triumph vs Hougang United.
Matches with Lion City Sailors have proved to be entertaining affairs recently with a lot of goalmouth action expected. Over their past 6 games alone, a grand total of 31 goals have flown in for both teams combined (at an average of 5.17 goals per game) with 24 of those belonging to The Sailors. Such a trend won’t necessarily be carried forward into this match, however.
Albirex Niigata Singapore
Albirex Niigata Singapore will come into the meeting after a 2-0 S League win against Balestier Khalsa in their previous game.
A series of hard-working performances by the Albirex Niigata Singapore defence has seen their ‘goals against’ tally standing at 4 from their past 6 outings in total. Over that same period, the number of goals that they have scored themselves amounts to 14.
Head to head
A study of their past head to head results going back to 09/06/2018 reveals that these encounters have not been kind to Lion City Sailors. They’ve not been able to get any victories at all while Albirex Niigata Singapore have been superior, running out winners in 67 per cent of those ties.
21 goals were shared by the two clubs in this period, with 6 for The Sailors and 15 coming from The White Swans. The average goals per game has been 3.5.
