AMICALE FC Form: W-W-W-W-D-D
Vital statistics:Amicale are the first non-Australian or non-New Zealand club to reach the Champions League final twice. Should they emerge victors from the final leg of the final, Amicale will also become the only non-Australian/New Zealand team other than Hekari United in 2010 to qualify for the FIFA Club World Cup. The final on Sunday will also be Amicale’s 26th match in the Oceania Champions League tournament.
The players: Amicale will be without captain and central defender Nelson Sale who is suspended. Top scorers for Amicale are Kensi TANGIS, Dominique FRED and Nikola VASILIC with three goals apiece; together with the freshly available Sanni ISSA and veteran Fenedy MASAUVAKALO, Amicale have a formidable strike team capable of swinging the second leg firmly in their favour.

AUCKLAND CITY FC Form: W-W-L-W-L-D
Vital statistics:The defending champions are chasing their fourth consecutive Oceania crown and sixth title overall. With a win over the two legs, Auckland City stand to make history as the team with the most appearances at the FIFA Club World Cup. They are currently tied with Egyptian club Al-Ahly with five. Their last match with Amicale in an OFC Champions League Final match at Kiwitea Street saw the Navy Blues prevail 4-0 on 17 April 2011.
The players: Emiliano TADE is Auckland City’s top-scorer with five goals and he is fit for selection to challenge for the Golden Boot award – he needs one goal to equal AS Pirae striker Naea BENNETT’s overall tally of six. Darren WHITE is comes back into the mix after missing Leg 1 with a suspension.
