Striker, Osea Vakatalesau, is the only injury concern as Fiji's Ba football side prepares for the return leg of the Oceania Champions League final against Waitakere United on Sunday in Auckland.

Ba upset Waitakere United 2-1 in the first leg with Vakatalesau suffering a leg injury when he came on as a second half replacement.

He's been ordered to rest.

Ba just needs a draw to qualify for the FIFA World Club playoffs against the Japanese J league winner.

The winner of that game is guaranteed a minimum 500,000 dollars US and a place at the FIFA world club champs in Japan later this year.
