- FUS Rabat (Morocco) Vs KCCA (Uganda) – Complexe Sportif Prince Héritier Moulay El Hassan
- Time: 10pm Local Time (12am EAT)
KCCA will have to battle Morocco’s FUS Rabat without over four key players when the two sides meet in the CAF Confederation Cup.
The Kasasiro, fresh from defending their Uganda Premier League title travel to Rabat for their opening match of the group stage scheduled for Saturday May 13 at the Complexe Sportif Prince Heritier Moulay El Hassan.
Suspended first choice goalkeeper Benjamin Ochan and skipper Denis Okot Oola are joined by injured Muzamiru Mutyaba and Paul Mucureezi on the list of players to miss the duel.
Mutyaba dislocated his shoulder in the 2-1 loss to Vipers a couple of weeks ago while Mucureezi hasn’t featured since the 1-0 win over JMC Hippos.
The 17-man squad also has no experienced duo of Robert Ssentongo and Vincent Kayizzi as well as Nigerian midfielder Sulaimon Akinyemi but new signing Ibrahim Saddam Juma plus youngsters Noel Nasasira and Mustafa Kizza make the cut.
The team is expected to travel in two batches with the first setting off on Thursday.
The 12-time Ugandan champions became the first local side to qualify for group stage of a continental competition with a 4-3 penalty shootout win over Egypt’s Al Masry last month.
Besides FUS Rabat, they will face Club Africain (Tunisia) and Rivers United (Nigeria) in group A of the competition.
