The Philippine Men's National Football team targets a semifinals bert as they face off against Indonesia in a crucial 2018 Suzuki Cup Group B battle, Sunday evening at the Gelora Bung Karno Stadium in Jakarta, Indonesia. 

Currently holding second place in the group behind defending champions Thailand, the visiting Azkals are hoping to secure three points against the home team to all but ensure their return to the Suzuki Cup's final four. 

After dispatching Singapore and Timor-Leste in their first two assignments, the Azkals managed to salvage a 1-1 draw against Thailand last November 21, courtesy of a late equalizer from Jovin Bedic.

A win for the Azkals will give them ten points to end the group stage and give them the necessary separation from third-seeded Singapore, who currently have six points. 

Indonesia, on the other hand, have been eliminated from semifinals contention. 

Kick-off time is at 8:00 PM, Manila time.
