Masavu Vs KCCA
Third-placed KCCA face relegation threatened-Masavu in Entebbe on Wednesday looking to return to the Azam Uganda Premier League (AUPL) summit.
But for that to happen the champions must beat lowly Masavu and hope SC Villa fail to pick maximum points against URA.
Vipers, who are not in action until Friday, lead standings with 35 points, with Villa and KCCA on 33 and 32 respectively.
KCCA walloped Masavu 6-0 in the first round but manager Mike Mutebi is not taking this tie for granted.
“We are facing a side that is fighting hard to stay up which makes the game risky,” said Mutebi, whose outfit are also gearing up for a Caf Champions League first round tie against Ethiopia’s St George.
“This is a match that will shape up our next Caf Champions League tie against St George (next week) and we are going to play our best away from home.”
Masavu, one place off the bottom, stunned Express the last time the Red Eagles visited Bugonga in Entebbe and are not giving up the fight yet.
KCCA are expected to make do without striker Muhammad Shaban, who is out injured.
Mutebi is also still without Sadam Juma, Jackson Nunda and Muzamir Mutyaba.
