DEFENDING champion Ba and Rewa only need a draw in their final group game today to earn a berth in the Inkk Mobile Battle of the Giants semi-finals at the ANZ Stadium next Saturday.

This is after match between the two teams ended scoreless at Govind Park last night.

Rewa will face Nadi in a crunch match at 1pm while Ba plays Labasa which is already out of the tournament at 5pm.

Ba Football Association secretary Iliaz Khan said they played well against a fully prepared Rewa side.

"We thank the players for their effort," Khan said.

"Though Labasa is out, I expect them to come out firing. We urge the crowd to get behind the team for our final group match because after this we will be heading to Suva."

Rewa coach Marika Rodu said recovery was important for the next match.

"Nadi wants to get to the semi-final just like us so it very important to recover as we will be playing in the heat," Rodu said.

"For us, playing against tough teams, the window to score only opens once or twice so you need to take it."
