KCCA coach Mike Mutebi has called upon his players to have self-belief that they can overcome the Africa champion’s Mamelodi Sundowns at the Phillip Omondi stadium on Saturday.
Experienced KCCA defender Habib Kavuma will miss the game due to accumulated yellow cards.
According to KCCA creative and versatile midfielder Paul Mucureezi who missed the first leg due to ulcers, he said that “we are going to play our hearts out to eliminate the South African giants from the CAF Champions League”
The Azam Premier League champions come in the game without losing any game at their tuff ground in all Competitions and this will be a motivation to players.
Mamelodi Sundowns who won the first leg 2-1 in South Africa are to jet in the country on Wednesday evening and they are to reside at Serena hotel.
On Tuesday, Polokwane City frustrated Mamelodi Sundowns with a goalless draw in an Absa Premiership game at the Loftus Versfeld Stadium. As a result the Brazilians stay fifth on the league log.
Ahead of the clash with KCCA, who slipped to second in the Azam Uganda Super League after SC Villa’s 2-0 win on Tuesday, their opponents coach, Pitso Mosimane admits he is worried about the workload of Percy Tau.
The once lethal midfielder has forgotten his scoring boots. He famously missed a sitter in the first leg, shooting straight at KCCA’s Benjamin Ochan when it seemed easier to score.
