AS Magenta wants winning start in Ba

Maciu Malo
Sunday, April 06, 2014

AS Magenta is hopeful of beating Ba on their home turf when the two teams lock horns in their first OFC Champions League match tomorrow.

Making its OFC return after a lapse of five years, the New Caledonia-based side is confident of upsetting the Men-in-Black in front of their home fans.

Team manager Pascal Uichi said his team would make its presence felt in the competition.

He said their primary target was to defeat Ba in their pool game.

"Nothing is impossible for the boys and I have faith my players can defeat Ba in our first pool game," said Uichi.

"We have been out of the OFC Champions League competition for the past five years and we are aiming to stamp our mark this year.

"The boys have prepared well for this championship and like all other participating teams, we are aiming to win the tournament."

He said the side hadn't played against Ba and they didn't know what to expect from the hosts.

"We heard that Ba is one of the teams here in Fiji and we will not underestimate them," said Uichi.

"Ba did well in last year's championship but I am hopeful we can defeat them at their very own turf."

The game will kick off at Govind Park at 3pm.
