Our Hougang United v Young Lions tips, poll and stats can be seen in full below - plus the latest betting odds.
Hougang United will be hoping to bounce back here after a 3-2 S League losing effort in their last game against Balestier Khalsa.
It has been all too rare in recent times where Hougang United have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. The facts show that Hougang United have been scored against in 6 of their previous 6 games, giving up 13 goals during that time.
After a losing effort in their last game against Tanjong Pagar United in S League action, Young Lions will be aiming to make amends here.
Indicating their predisposition for eventful encounters, we’ve had goals 22 times in the previous six matches in which Young Lions have played, making it an average of 3.67 goals for each clash. Opposing teams have got 12 of this grand total. That trend isn’t assured to follow through into this next game, though.

We’re expecting both teams to score in a 2-1 winning score for Hougang United after 90 minutes. There shouldn’t be much in it, either way.
