Ba treats Lupe Ole Soaga with respect
April 14, 2015 12:12 am
The Vodafone Ba football side is playing down the hype that it will start as top bets against Samoa’s Lupe Ole Soaga in the Fiji Airways OFC Champions League this afternoon.
Ba takes on the minnows at home at Govind Park and odds are stacked against the Samoans.
However, Lupe Ole Soaga held AS Pirae 3-all on Match Day One, while Ba beat Gaitcha 3-0.
Ba coach Shalen Lal says it’s about respecting every opposition they play.
“We take every game seriously and its very important and probably people are thinking it will be a walkover but looking at the game again AS Pirae, Lupe Ole Soaga, they are a very good side and we have to prepare really well to face them.”
Lal is likely to retain the same starting line-up which featured in the first match.
In games today, at the ANZ Stadium, Auckland City takes on Western United at 4.30pm and Suva battles Amicale at 7pm.
At Govind Park, Ba meets Lupe Ole Soaga at 4:30pm while AS Pirae faces Gaitcha at 7pm.
You can catch the live commentary of the Ba-Lupe Ole Soaga match with the voice of soccer Raymond Stoddart at 4.30pm while the Suva Suva-Amicale match commentary will be on Radio Fiji 2 at 7pm.
