Lion City Sailors will take on Daegu in the final of the AFC Champions League group stages on Saturday.
Daegu will come into this game on the back of a convincing 4-0 win over Chinese outfit Shangdong Taishan. The win has put them on the top of Group F and even a draw in their final game will be sufficient to see them through.
Their rivals, on the other hand, were at the receiving end of a 6-0 mauling at the hands of Urawa Red Diamonds on Wednesday. The defeat has now seriously jeopardized their own prospects of progression.
