- Return leg, Wednesday December 5
- Vipers Vs Al Merriekh – St. Mary’s stadium, Kitende 4pm
Bakri Al Madina and Ibrahim Altag scored late in the game as Al Merriekh edged Uganda’s Caf Champions League Vipers 2-1 in a Khartoum.
Daniel Sserunkuma scored Vipers’ precious away goal in the last minute of the 90 to give hope of progression to the next round to the Ugandan side.
The hosts were dominant and should have gone ahead in the first half but missed a penalty after Noah Wafula fouled in the area.
They got a second penalty when Livingstone Mulondo handled in the area and Bakri sent Sekagya the wrong way.
Moments later, they doubled the lead through Altag who finished off a good move with a goal that nearly made the tie a done affair.
However, Sserunkuma, a second half substitute for Abraham Ndugwa scored for Vipers to ensure they will need just a 1-0 win at Kitende to advance to the next stage.
The Vipers Line up:
Bashir Ssekagya (GK), Ibrahim Kiyemba, Yayo Lutimba, Halid Lwaliwa, Livingstone Mulondo, Taddeo Lwanga, Geoffrey Wasswa, Moses Waiswa, Abraham Ndugwa (Dan Sserunkuma), Tito Okello (Duncan Sseninde), Noah Wafula (Rahmat Ssenfuka).
