Albirex Niigata - Lion City Sailors
In the 12`th round of the Singaporean S league, and 2 months after the break, Albirex Niigata welcomes Lion City Sailors. The fight is for the title as Albirex leads by 1 point and it has been tight all season long. Both teams have prolific attackers but Albirex will miss theirs today as Tsuboi is injured and will not play. The key striker for Lion city – Plazibat is also rated a doubt. Sailors will also miss the midfield trio of Akbar, Sulaiman and Ui-young but have two important players back from injury.
Sailors have invested a lot of money in the team and they brought in the n.t. captain Harun but also the experienced Korean coach – Kim Do-Hoon who even won the ACL. He will surely improve the level of play in Lion City but is 1 month enough? We shall see today.
