Match Preview: Albirex Niigata (S) vs Geylang International
By Eagles Admin on 7 June 2013
Geylang International FC opens our Starhub League Cup campaign this Saturday up against Albirex Niigata FC (S) at Jurong East Stadium.
The White Swans will want to set straight the record against the Eagles who are proving to be somewhat of a bogeyman for them. They will not have forgotten the 2-0 defeat the Eagles inflicted upon them last year in the same competition. Earlier this year also, in their encounter against us in the S-League, only an unfortunate own goal from Khairulhayat Jumat in the 92nd minute spared them the blushes and they escaped with a 2-2 draw.
Geylang International, on the other hand, will come into this game on the back of a three-game unbeaten run including our recent friendly 2-0 win against Singapore U23. Eagles’captain, Jozef Kaplan, is currently in irresistible form and he will surely be determined to ensure that the Eagles maintain their high flying form.
Expect a tense affair this Saturday when these two teams meet each other with both having a point to prove!
