Uganda’s CAF Champions League flag holders KCCA are set to travel to Luanda, Angola for their second leg of the preliminary tie against Primeiro de 1 Agosto minus three experienced players.
Midfielders Vincent Kayizzi and Nigerian Sulaimon Akinyemi plus striker Robert Ssentongo are not part of Mike Mutebi’s 16-man squad who are set to leave the country in the wee hours of Friday morning.
Surprisingly, the trio was part of the 18-man squad for the first leg tie with Ssentongo and Kayizzi making second half appearances in the game.
KCCA lead the tie 1-0 from the first leg as decided by a 49th minute strike by Geoffrey Sserunkuma at Phillip Omondi stadium.
