BA crashed out of the Oceania Football Confederation Champions League after a scoreless second semi-final draw against Amicale at the Port Vila Municipal Stadium in Vanuatu yesterday.

The result meant the Vodafone 4R Electrical Men in Black finished the home and away series with a 1-2 loss on aggregate.

Ba needed to win by two clear goals in the fixture to claim a spot in the home and away semi-final.

However it wasn't to be, as the hosts backed by more than 9000 fans kept a tight defence to keep the likes of strikers Osea Vakatalesau and Abbu Zahid Shaheed at bay.

Vakatalesau was a replaced by Maciu Dunadamu in the 31st minute after picking up an ankle injury.

Zahid was sent off in the fixture after copping two yellow cards in as many minutes in the final quarter.

Remueru Tekiate, Ronil Kumar and Mavileko Nakama were also cautioned in the fixture.

Today defending champions Auckland City will take on AS Pirae in Tahiti in the second leg semi-final.

Auckland City defeated AS Pirae 3-0 in the first semi-final in Tahiti last week.

Amicale: Chikau Mansale, David Talone, Shivan Swamy, Esava Naqeleca, Nikola Vasilic, Francois Sakama, Nelson Kilifa, Dominique Fred, Jack Wetney, Marko Ordevic, Colin Marshall.

Ba: Epeli Codro, Avinesh Suwamy, Meli Codro, Marika Madigi, Ronil Kumar, Jone Vesikula, Abbu Zahid Shaheed, Mavileko Nakama, Josefata Neibuli, Remueru Tekiate, Osea Vakatalesau, Laisenia Raura.
