CAF CHAMPIONS LEAGUE : KCCA FACE ESPERANCE AS SUNDOWNS HOST AS TOGO

The Group stage of the 2018 CAF Champions League continues as clubs battle for qualification into the quarter finals.

Kampala City Council Academy now have a chance to revenge their 2-0 loss to Esperance on Saturday at the Mandela National Stadium, in a match they need nothing short of victory to get their chances back on track in Group.

KCCA revival faces litmus test against Esperance

Esperance sit atop with seven points whilst KCCA occupy the depth with three points.

“It’s unbelievable we weren’t disciplined tactically away from home and it cost us the lead we had planned. Now we have the chance at home and we have to be very tactical and calculate every move because we are playing a very disciplined and mature team,” said KCCA coach Mike Mutebi.

A win for Esparance will take them within touching distance of a place at the quarters.

KCCA playmaker Jackson Nunda, who found the back of the net in the reverse last week is optimistic they can bounce back in style.

“We have the experience now. If we can avoid mistakes now, we can win at home because it’s a big advantage. Interpreting tactics was our problem in Tunisia but for now we are settled and looking forward to execute the tusk,” Nunda said.

In the other Group A clash, Township Rollers of Botswana host record champions, Al Ahly of Egypt in Gaborone.

South Africa’s Memolodi Sundowns will now get the chance to avenge their surprising defeat at the hands of AS Togo ten days ago in Lome.
