FIJI Football Association national coaching director Juan Carlos Buzzetti says experience is what has carried Ba to the top of Group C in the Oceania Football Confederation Champions League.

According to Buzzetti, Ba played a tactical game in their 4-0 victory against Tafea FC.

"Ba read the game well in the first half," he said.

"They did not compromise too much. Tafea FC is a very skilful and fast team. Ba did the right thing in my opinion, maybe they were not positive in attack but they knew exactly what they were doing.

"They changed the game pattern in the second half. When you have a tournament like this you can't have the same players in every single game. You have to take into consideration the injuries and yellow cards.

"They did the right thing having the big players at the back. Vanuatu played everything on the ground.

"They have a very young squad and this is where Ba's experience showed. The knowledge they have of playing at this level was obvious in the second half. At the end they should have won by a higher margin."

Ba leads the group with six points and is ahead of Tafea FC by three points.
