Singapore face Indonesia in their final Group A game of 2016 AFF Suzuki Cup in Manila on 25 November. While Group A leaders Thailand have already clinched a semi-final spot, all the other three teams - Singapore, Philippines and Indonesia - are still in contention for the second spot from the group.

Both the Lions and the Garudas have not won a game yet but have drew and lost one each in their previous outings. Singapore though have failed to find the back of the net even once in the ongoing tournament and are placed third in the group while Indonesia, who have scored four and conceded six, are occupying the last spot in group A.

However, things can quickly change on Friday when all the four teams take the field. For both Singapore and Indonesia, a lot will depend on the result of the night's other game, in which The War Elephants and the Azkals go head-to-head.

While a win for Philippines will knock both Singapore and Indonesia out, either a Thailand win or a draw will make things trickier.

V Sundramoorthy's team have also been rocked by Facebook rant of star defender Baihakki Baizan who went to point fingers at a coaching staff for his axing from the playing XI.

For Sundram's team, nothing less than a couple of goals can help and the 51-year-old tactician believes his wards can turn it around on the crucial night.

On the other hand, Indonesia have had problems with their defence and their attacking capabilities will also be tested by the Singapore backline, which has remained solid so far. Boaz Solossa, who has already scored two goals in the tournament, will be key to their chances.

Coach Alfred Riedl wants to see both teams to be involved in an "open" football. However, he maintains that his team is ready for anything that Singapore brings to the table.
