Waitakere United qualified for the OFC O-League final after holding Auckland City to a draw in the final match of Group A. Waitakere finished the group one point ahead of their intercity rivals and will now have their sights focused on becoming the OFC O-League champions for the second successive year.
Kossa qualified for their first ever OFC O-League final after beating Fijian champions Ba in the final round of Group B. It was the first time Ba has ever been beaten on home soil in the OFC O-League and the result was met with scenes of celebration throughout Honiara and the Solomon Islands.
