Fiji are already through to the last four of the competition

Fiji host Tahiti at the HFC Bank Stadium in Suva on Friday in their final group match of the 2024 OFC Nations Cup.

With two wins from two, Fiji have already booked their place in the semi-finals of the competition. The Bula Boys crushed Papua New Guinea 5-1 in their opening group fixture before a stunning 9-1 demolition of Samoa.

The talismanic duo of Roy Krishna and Thomas Dunn account for six of those 14 goals, but both could be rested for their last group match as their progression is already sealed.

Meanwhile, Tahiti are just behind them in second position on the Group B table with four points. They beat Samoa 2-0 in their first match before a 1-1 draw with Papua New Guinea in the next.

A draw here would be enough to confirm their place in the last four, but it's far easier said than done against a high-flying Fiji outfit who've steamrolled their way in the tournament and are currently on a three-game winning run.
