Uganda Cranes coach Mulitin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has made six changes from the side that lost 2-1 away in Mahajanga in the first leg of the 2015 Afcon first qualifying round.
Denis Onyango replaces youthful Ismail Watenga in goal while Isaac Isinde and Brian Majwega start at centre back and left back in places of Henry Kalungi and Joseph Ochaya respectively.
William Luwagga Kizito who was an used substitute in the first leg starts ahead of Martin Mutumba Kayongo who is not even named on the substitutes.
Moses Oloya and Geoffrey Massa who missed the first leg through injuries also start. In what is an attack minded eleven, Micho opts for two holding central midfielders in Aucho Khalid and Geoffrey Baba Kizito with Norway based Tonny Mawejje surprisingly benched.
Troubled midfielder Hassan Wasswa is not even named on the bench. Massa is expected to lead the line alongside Okwi with Oloya and Luwagga occupying the wide areas.
Uganda needs to win Madagascar by at least 1-0 or attain a win of a two goal margin in case the Barea score.
Denis Onyango (GK), Denis Iguma, Andrew Mwesigwa, Isaac Isinde, Brian Majwega, Aucho Khalid, Geoffrey ‘Baba’ Kizito, Moses Oloya, William Luwagga Kizito, Emma Okwi and Geoffrey Massa.
