Lion City (1st)
Last five matches: DWLWW
The home team recorded a back-to-back win after the defeat against Albirex Niigata. They have since been solid, scoring fourteen and conceding once.
The Sailors are one the best team in the division; they have lost three games all season. They have scored the second most (63) goals this season; not just that, they have been pretty stingy at the back with (19) goals conceded so far, the lowest in the division. However, Lion City have been performing well in the past five games, with ten points from a possible fifteen.
The Sailors have forty-five points in twenty games. They have won eight, drawn one and lost once at home this season, scoring twenty-eight goals and conceding seven in that process.
Tanjong Pagar (3rd)
Last five matches: DWLLL
The Jaguars have now lost three games in a row, scoring five and conceding thirteen.
As if the loss against Geylang was not enough, they stumbled on another defeat against the worst team in the league as they were beaten (4-2). They recorded another loss on matchday 20 as Tampines Rovers came back from two goals down to secure all the points on the road.
The Jaguars are third on the log with sixteen points behind Lion City, and it’s unlikely they will challenge either Albirex Niigata or Lion City for the title this season; however, the AFC champions league spot is still available for grabs.
Tanjong Pagar have won five, lost three and drawn twice in the last ten away games.
