Malaysia 3 - 1 Singapore
SINGAPORE: The Causeway rivals take each other on in a highly-charged National Stadium on Saturday night (Nov 29), as they vie for the right to face Vietnam in the semi-finals. Lions coach Bernd Stange said the Tigers are "extremely dangerous" but backed his side to claim a result.
