Lion City Sailors will be the visitors at Jalan Besar Stadium on Sunday for the S League meeting with hosts Young Lions.
Our Young Lions v Lion City Sailors predictions, statistics and match poll can be seen below - as well as up-to-date odds.
Young Lions will be hoping for a repeat of their last result, following the 2-3 S League success against Geylang International.
It has been all too rare in recent times where Young Lions have shown defensive steel. It will be a concern for them that Young Lions have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 6 of their previous 6 matches, giving up 9 goals on the way. It will be interesting to see whether or not that trend can be continued on here.

Team News: Young Lions
Danish Irfan Azman (Unknown Injury) and Hami Syahin (Ankle Surgery) will be missing for Young Lions boss Fandi Ahmad.
Team News: Lion City Sailors
Out of a mainly full-strength squad, there’s only the one fitness problem for the Lion City Sailors gaffer Saswadimata Dasuki to contend with. Adam Swandi (Unknown Injury) won’t be in action.
It looks to us that Lion City Sailors will most probably dominate possession and create several successful chances.
Conversely, Young Lions may well struggle to break down their defence but we do think that it’s more than likely that they will be getting enough chances to score, too.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a fairly comfortable 1-3 margin for Lion City Sailors at full-time.
