AS Vénus had an amazing 2019 in Tahiti by winning a double after conquering Ligue 1 and Coupe de Tahiti Nui.
The Ligue 1 title race was very tight and the champion finished just one point ahead of AS Tiare Tahiti in a breathtaking season ending a twenty years drought in the league. Both teams are qualified for 2020 OFC Champions League.
They had a difficult draw in Coupe‘s Round of 16 but it was not a problem for them. Vénus won strong Central Sport by 3-0 to begin their path through the glory. They also won AS Temanava by 8-2 in quarterfinals and AS Pirae by 2-0 in the semifinals. AS Tefana was the final’s opponent and they lost by 3-0 to Vénus to lift the Cup’s trophy for the first time since 2002.
Forward Teaonui Tehau was the top scorer of both competitions, scoring 42 goals in Ligue 1 and eleven in the Cup. An unforgettable season for the 27 years old player who is the Tahiti National Team all time topscorer.
OFC Champions League group stage is scheduled to begin on February and Tehau can be one of the contenders to win the Golden Boot Award.
