FOOTBALL fans and supporters are in for more football action today as Group D of the Oceania Champions League resume matches today.

Two tough matches scheduled for today are set to kick off at 1pm and 4pm at the Lawson Tama Stadium.

First up will see Lupe Ole Soaga taking on the might of Team Wellington while the home side Marist FC will take on AS Magenta for the day’s second match.

Today’s matches are anticipated to be tougher as clubs battle for maximum points.

At the moment there are no real favourites following the results from the opening matches played over the weekend.

Samoan Club, Lupe Ole Soaga, known as the underdogs of the competition has proven to be a tough contender.

Despite going up against a tough AS Magenta side, Lupe maintained a consistent play format throughout the 90 minutes losing only with a 2-0 margin.

They will take on Team Wellington today and there are no early predictions as to what the likely outcome will be.

Lupe is prepared to give in everything for today’s match and Team Wellington knows better not to underestimate its opponent.

Today’s second match is again the most highlighted match with the home side, Marist FC taking on AS Magenta.

Following their 1-1 draw with Team Wellington over the weekend, Marist is more determined to get their first three points.

With AS Magenta eyeing to maintain their winning form, today’s clash will be tough for both teams.

AS Magenta currently leads group D with three points followed by Marist, Team Wellington with a point each and Lupe on fourth place who are yet to register a point.
