It's Albirex!

Albirex Niigata are in line for a Singapore treble after they squuezed by Hougang United in their Singapore Cup semi final last night.

The game ended 1-1 on 90 minutes meaning the teams had to go into extra time for the right to face Home United in the final in November. Yosuke Saito gave the White Swans the lead after five minutes of extra time but their hearts must have skipped a few beats when prolific scorer Shotaro Ihata was red carded minutes later.

Sobrie Mazelan then equalised with just five minutes left! It was Saito though who had the final say just two minutes later leaving Albirex Niigata facing their second Cup Final of the year after they defeated Hougang United in the League Cup earlier in the season.

Surprising that Albirex doesn't look like their normal scoring selves versus Hougang two-legs. So it's Home United for me to win the Cup, but November final is still a long way...
