THE Vodafone 4R Electrical Ba team are confident of turning the tables against Amicale in the return Oceania Football Confederation (OFC) Champions League semi-final at Port Vila this afternoon.

Ba needs to win by two clear goals to qualify for the home and away final.

Ba team coach Arvind Singh told the OFC website that they would face a lot of pressure from the fans in Vanuatu.

Singh said they had worked on the mistakes made in the first semi-final loss at Govind Park.

"In sport anything is possible," he said.

"If Amicale can come and beat us in our own home ground, then I believe we can do the same there. The players have learned from their mistakes in the first leg and they will try their best not to repeat it.

"We are gunning for a win to make the nation of Fiji proud. The players will face lot of pressure playing in front of the diehard fans.

"But we are hopeful that they will be able to absorb the pressure and deliver the result that we are after."

The match will kick off at 3.30pm.
