Persipura Wallop Warriors


Persipura v Warriors 6-0 (Boas Solossa 2, Ian Louis Kabes 2, Gerald Pangkali, Paulin Bio) 9,823

The Black Pearls must head to India for their final group stage game knowing a draw will confirm them in top spot. Bengalaru, who defeated Maizya 2-1 yesterday are a point behind Persipura but have a far worse goal difference.

I guess we shouldn't be too surprised by the margin of victory. The SLeague champions maybe top of the table again but they also have the worst defense in the league, conceding 14 goals in eight games.

Balestier Khalsa v Kitchee 1-2 (Fadhil Noh; Juan Belascono 2) 523

With just one win and four defeats from their five AFC Cup ties so far this has been a real baptism of fire for the side from Toa Payoh Stadium. Still, there is always next year...if there is a next year for the SLeague!

East Bengal v Johor Darul Takzim 0-1 (OG) 100

I dunno, I always though Kolkota was a hotbed of Indian football. I was ready with all my time worn cliches to suggest JDT would be suffering a hangover after the 'resting' of coach Bojan Hodak and the red hot atmosphere in a packed stadium would be too much for them. Wrong on both counts eh? You gotta laugh...

JDT are top and host Balestier Khalsa in their final game. You can't see them not winning that even though the SLeague side will no doubt be followed by thousands of loyal fans across the Causeway. Or  maybe not. A draw or a loss could see Kitchee leapfrog them into top spot.
