My Ride: BMW 328i year 1998

I have missifire on cylinder 3..
I did a compression test ( cold engine ):

Cyl 1: 13
Cyl 2: 13
Cyl3: 9,5
Cyl4: 13
Cyl5: 13

Can it be the lifters ? From my experiance, a bad lifter only causes high tick-sound and the vale maybe doesn't open correctly but it closes correctly. In my case it's not closing correctly, the valve seat is probably not 100% sealed. = valve seat leakage.
