Ba to take on Amicale

BA will take on Amicale in the first match of the home and away Oceania Football Confederation Champions League semi-finals at Govind Park this Sunday.

The Vodafone/4R Electrical-sponsored side has been in camp since qualifying for the semi-finals. There was no break for the players for the Easter long weekend. They were not even released for the various religious soccer tournaments.

Ba team manager Arvind Singh said they had adopted a serious approach for the next stage.

Singh said there were no injury concerns.

"The players are fully fit," he said.

"None of the players are suspended through double yellow cards and the morale in camp is high.

"We are calling on the fans to turn up in numbers to support the team. This is not only about the district as we are carrying the hopes of the nation."

Ba's best finish in the competition was in 2007 when the side lost the final on the away goals rule to Waitakere United.

The Men in Black was placed third in the group stages in 2008, 2009 and 2012. Last year, Ba reached the semi-finals losing to Auckland City 7-1 on aggregate in the home and away series.

Amicale will be boosted with the return of Alick Maemae from suspension. Nigerian Sanni Issa will not feature for the Vanuatu club as he is not allowed in the country for breaching his work permit. The match will kick off at 1pm. Tickets are $8 for adults and $3 for children under-12.
