Big game at home

BA goes into the Oceania Football Confederation semi-final today with an unblemished record against Amicale of Vanuatu.

The Vodafone 4R Electrical Men in Black have beaten Amicale twice in the previous outings.

However this afternoon's encounter will be different.

The Vanuatu squad is boosted with players from Italy, Australia, Solomon Islands, Serbia and Scotland.

Former Lautoka, Ba and national rep Lorima Batirerega said the match would be an exciting one.

Batirerega said Amicale had done well at the group stage.

"Self-belief within the Ba players will be very important," he said.

"The players have been together for some time and understand each other's style. If they do the things right on the field than there will be no stopping Ba. They have a good home record."

Amicale created the biggest upset at the group stage beating favourites Auckland City 1-0.

Former Ba rep and Lautoka coach Dennis Singh said the home team should not rely on their past two wins and take the match seriousily.

Dennis said the players needed to give their 100 per cent on the field.

"The fans will play a big role in the match," he said.

Ba team manager Arvin Singh has urged the fans to wear black for the game.

"There are no injury concerns and we are ready," he said.

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