Lucas Pantelis and his Adelaide teammates are ready to take on Melbourne Victory in tomorrow night's semi-final return leg.

Pantelis told tribalfootball, “Melbourne Victory beat us convincingly last week and now have one foot in the Grand Final.

“But all of us Adelaide boys have faith in our ability to overcome the 2-0 deficit and take this game out.

“It’s really like being 2-0 down at half-time.

“With the tremendous experience we picked up on our Asian Cup exploits this year and the fact that we are a very close group of players, we will give our all against the Victory team. “Viddy (Reds coach Aurelio Vidmar) has been very relaxed at training all week and we don’t lack the confidence to do it.

“We want to be in Asia again as soon as possible and we have no choice but to win the title this year to ensure we get back into the Asian Champions League”.
