Singapore is set to renew its rivalry with defending champions Malaysia in the 2012 AFF Suzuki Cup after the draw was held on Wednesday in Bangkok.
The arch-rivals were drawn in Group B alongside Indonesia and the runners-up of the qualifying round.
Although last year's finalists Indonesia will pose the biggest threat to Malaysian hopes of advancing to the knock-out phase, all eyes will be on the causeway derby which will be played on 25 November in the opening Group B match.
In Group A, three-time winners Thailand will face off against Vietnam, Philippines and the qualifying group winner.
The group stage of the AFF Cup -- traditionally Southeast Asia's biggest football tournament -- will be co-hosted by Thailand and Malaysia and will take place from 24 November to 1 December.
