Despite being newcomers to the Oceania Champions League football competition, Team Wellington will be able to draw on plenty of experience in Tuesday's semi final match-up against Fijian club Ba.
Both teams are unbeaten going into the winner-takes-all clash at ANZ Stadium in Suva, having topped their respective groups with maximum points.
This is Ba's sixth season in the O-League, having finished runners-up in 2007 and
making the semi finals 12 month ago.
Team Wellington are contesting their first continental campaign but have recruited a number of players with Champions League experience.
Midfielder Cole Peverley says they expect a lot of themselves.
"To be honest there's a lot of experience in the side and I think we wouldn't settle for less. We obviously want to win and we do think we have the quality to win it. We've obviously achieved nothing yet until we win it and I think everyone's thinking that, so we need to go out there and perform and get the result and obviously win the final as well. That would be obviously good for us and great for the club - that's definitely the ultimate goal".
Meanwhile defending champions Auckland City insist they won't be taking newcomers FC Gaitcha lightly in this afternoon's opening semi final clash.
City have claimed the past four O-League titles and are yet to concede a goal in this year's competition, while Gaitcha are the only semi finalist who did not finish top of their group.
Auckland City have also never lost to a New Caledonian club in the regional championship but coach Ramon Tribulietx says their opponents are a threat in transition and have a number of skillful players who are very dangerous on the ball.
