Defending champions Greater Male Industrial Zone Limited (GMIZL) and three times champion, Maldives Ports Limited (MPL), progressed to the Quarterfinal on penalties.

The result was decided when Afual Abdul Hameed’s (Waalu) penalty was denied by the crossbar. GMIZL advanced to Quarterfinal by winning 2-1 on penalties.
