Three or more goals per game were seen in 6 of the past 6 fixtures where Lion City Sailors have participated. Opposition teams scored 10 times in this period whereas Lion City Sailors amassed a tally of 32. Such a pattern won’t necessarily be carried forward into this game, however.

Tadanari Lee (20', 69') scored for Albirex Niigata Singapore.

Team News: Lion City Sailors
Zulqarnaen Suzliman (Unknown Injury) and Amiruldin Asraf (Unknown Injury) will be missing for Lion City Sailors gaffer Do-Hoon Kim.
Team News: Young Lions
Due to a mostly full-strength squad, there is only a single fitness worry for the Young Lions gaffer Fandi Ahmad to be concerned about. Jacob Mahler (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be playing here. Players who are serving a ban and are therefore ineligible to play are Syahrul Sazali, Amir Syafiz and Umayr Sujuandy.
For this match, we think that Lion City Sailors should have the majority of the possession and should be able to turn a few of their chances into goals.
Conversely, Young Lions won’t find it easy to score themselves but we can see them being dangerous at times, too.
Accordingly, we see a controlled 3-1 win for Lion City Sailors after 90 minutes.
