Balestier Khalsa vs Hougang United
Singapore – Premier League
Date: Wednesday, 18 March 2020
Kick-off at 11:45 UK/ 12:45 CET
Venue: Bishan Stadium.
The Tigers had finished dead last in the table last season, and they seem motivated to avoid such an embarrassment this time around. However, against the Cheetahs, one of the podium-finishers of the prior campaign, Khalsa’s resolve will be tested to the limit.

Balestier Khalsa vs Hougang United Prediction
The Tigers recorded a 0-2 win on the road the last match-day, against the Young Lions. While the win does help in instilling some self-belief, it was only the third win for the team from last April. As such, they are still under pressure to improve their performances.
In the meanwhile, the Cheetahs lost 1-2 at home against Geylang the prior game week. After an inspiring campaign in 2019, the squad has struggled to start their 2020 season on the same note. Likely, we can expect them to target the dead-last placed team of the prior edition of the competition.
It does help that Teo’s men have lost only thrice on the road since May 2019, and impressively, they had found the back of the net twice or more in 14 of their preceding 16 away fixtures. They had also scored four or more goals in five of their preceding ten away games.
On the other hand, their counterparts have won just thrice in total from April 2019, and are on a 10-game winless run at this venue (of which seven were wins). On top of that, the Cheetahs are on a three-fixture winning run against this opponent as well. Taking these findings into consideration, it’s expected that Hougang should win at least once half of the game.
However, do note that the Tigers are desperate to improve their performances, and that they have begun their season on a positive note. They have also won their latest game, had scored three goals in their latest h2h clash, and had scored twice or more in 7 of the past 11 such encounters at this ground. Likely, expect the BTTS bet to bring good returns this Wednesday.
