Sport: Auckland City, Amicale on course for grand final repeat

12:51 pm on 28 April 2014

Amicale FC and Auckland City are on course to meet in a repeat of the 2011 Oceania Champions League football final following impressive victories at the weekend.

Emiliano Tade scored twice to help defending O-League winners Auckland City to a 3-0 semi final first leg victory at home over AS Pirae.

Meanwhile Vanuatu's Amicale FC came-from-behind to win 2-1 win away to Fijian champions Ba.

Ba were 1-0 up at half time thanks to a goal by Avinesh Suwamy but two second half goals in the space of a minute from Vanuatu international Dominique Fred and substitute Kensi Tangis were enough to earn a valuable win and two precious away goals.

The return legs are this Saturday in Port Vila and Papeete.
