Sport: Oceania Champions League football final decided today

10:34 am on 31 March 2012

The last remaining place in the Oceania Champions League football final will be decided this afternoon, with three teams still in the running.

Tahitian club Tefana are in pole position as group leaders but will be pushed hard by New Zealand's Waitakere United and Fijian champions Ba.

Vinnie Wylie reports.

"Tefana lead Group A with 10 points from five matches, one clear of Waitakere United. They will confirm their place in May's home and away grand final if they can gain maximum points away at Fijian side Ba. Ba are also a slim chance to finish top but would need to win by a sizable margin to overhaul Waitakere's superior goal differential. Former O-League champs Waitakere need to beat bottom club Mont-Dore from New Caledonia and hope that Tefana slip up in they're to set-up an all New Zealand final against Auckand City. The defending champions, Auckland City, secured their passage from Group B at the start of the month. They round out their group phase at Vanuatu club Amicale, while Koloale host Hekari United in another dead rubber."
