Malaysia will be up against eternal rivals, Indonesia.

With the SEA Games semi finals between Malaysia and Indonesia set to take place on Thursday, it's time for to cast your vote for the team that you think will triumph!

Malaysia U-23 are set to take on the Indonesian U-23 side in what will be a monumental SEA Games semi final clash on Thursday. Ong Kim Swee's men have been relatively solid in the competition thus far, scoring nine goals in four group stage matches, but nonetheless, they should not be underestimating the Young Garudas themselves.

Rozaimi and Izham Tarmizi have definitely been the two standout performers from Malaysia's matches thus far, and Indonesia will certainly be paying extra attention to the former, who possesses incredible predatory awareness. But at the same time, Yandi Munawar, who has only netted one goal in this SEA Games campaign, should also find it tough to break Izham Tarmizi down in the Malaysian goal.

Having said that, Ong Kim Swee's men have the tendency of being sloppy defensively and they cannot afford to do that against an Indonesian side that plays with pace and speed. Andik Vermansyah, who seems to be struggling for form, must still be monitored carefully, as one brilliant moment of football from the youngster can change Malaysia's fortunes.

The battle as usual, will be won in midfield. Malaysia have done reasonably well with Nazmi Faiz and Irfan Fazail in the middle of the park, but Indonesia can stop them and surprise them on the break, it could go any way. But question is, who do you think will triumph on Thursday and book a spot in the final of the SEA Games?
