Ba, Nadi to face Oceania's best

Friday, April 04, 2014

LAUTOKA coach Dennis Singh expects Nadi and Ba to face uphill battles at the Oceania Champions League group stage play-offs in the country next week.

According to Singh, most of the other clubs had been reinforced with foreign players and technical expertise.

He said the onus would be on our players to rise to the challenge.

"The Champions League is a higher level competition than our National Football League," the former national rep said.

"The New Zealand clubs, Auckland City and Waitakere United go in as the favourites. They have players from as far as Europe which gives them the advantage.

"To overcome the highly fancied teams, our players need to play to the best of their ability. Ball possession will be the key.

"The home crowd support will also be vital. All the fans need to get behind Nadi and Ba because they are flying our nation's flag."

The Oceania Champions League will kick-off at Govind Park in Ba on Monday.

Group A has Kiwi FC (Samoa), Waitakete United, Solomon Warriors and AS Pirae (Tahiti). Group B has Nadi, AS Dragons (Tahiti), Auckland City and Amicale FC (Vanuatu).

Group C has Vodafone 4R Electrical Men in Black Ba, Tafea FC (Vanuatu), Hekari United (Papua New Guinea) and AS Magneta (New Caledonia).
