AMICALE coach Nathan Hall expects a tough challenge from Ba at the Oceania Football Confederation Champions League semi-final at Govind Park on Sunday.

Last year the two teams met at the same venue with the hosts running away victorious 2-0.

Sanni Issa and Abbu Zahid Shaheed scored the goals in the match in which Amicale's recruit Ilatia Tuilau saw red.

Issa is in the Amicale squad this year however the Nigerian will not be allowed in the country for breaching his work permit whilst being here.

Hall told the Oceania Football website that Ba would hold the advantage playing in front of their home fans first.

"We will have the upper hand in Port Vila with 10,000 fans expected," he said.

"It is going to be different over two legs and I think it is going to be 180 minutes of very good football.

"It will be a close tie with two teams that are evenly matched and we look forward to it."

In the other semi-final, Auckland City will host Tahitian club AS Pirae in New Zealand at 2pm tomorrow.

Tickets for Sunday's fixture are $8 for adults and $3 for children under-12. The match will kick off at 1pm.
