Following his club’s goalless draw with St. George away from home, KCCA manager Mike Mutebi couldn’t hide his excitement but also admitted it’s dangerous.
The Ugandan champions were impressive avoiding an away loss on the continent since Mutebi took charge but will now have to win at home to progress to the group stages of the CAF Champions League.
“I am happy with the result,” said Mutebi. “The boys did well although we missed some good opportunities to score but overall, am happy,” he told the local press.
“However, 0-0 is dangerous. It leaves the tie wide open and any goal you concede means you have to double.
KCCA will however be optimistic come March 17 when they host the second leg at StarTimes stadium, Lugogo.
They are yet to lose at home on the continent and never failed to score against any opponent at home.
But they will hope there will be no repeat of last year’s result at the same stage when they drew 1-1 with then reigning champions, Mamelodi Sundowns.
