Our Balestier Khalsa v Tampines Rovers tips, poll and stats can be seen in full below (inc. the best betting odds).
Balestier Khalsa will be hoping to return to winning ways here after a 1-5 S League defeat in their last game at the hands of Albirex Niigata Singapore.
Tadanari Lee (44') was the scorer for Albirex Niigata Singapore.
Balestier Khalsa haven’t been able to stop scoring goals, hitting the target every time they’ve gone out to play in their last 6 games.
They have hit an aggregate of 17 during that time while seeing the number of goals scored against them stand at 19.
In their last game, Tampines Rovers drew 2-2 in the S League match with DPMM FC.

A succession of somewhat underwhelming efforts from the Tampines Rovers defensive players has resulted in a sum of 19 goals being fired past them in only their last six outings. They will certainly want to improve on this disappointing area of their game. Previous results aside, we’ll just have to find out whether such a trend will be sustained in this next game or not.
