CAF Confederation Cup | 2nd Leg, Play off

KCCA (Uganda) 2-0 AS Otoho D’ Oyo (Congo)

*AS Otoho D’Oyo qualifies to the CAF Confederation Cup group stages after 3-2 win on aggregate.

Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) Football Club manager Mike Hillary Mutebi confessed that the harsh rainy weather will not be taken as an excuse for his charges’ failure to progress to the group stages of the CAF Confederation cup.

Heavy rains in Kampala and the surrounding areas that started hours to the return leg between KCCA and Congo’s AS Otoho D’Oyo continued way through to the warm up session and during the match.

The rainny weather during the match is not an excuse at all. The performance was above average. We played with determination and clarity. We have however failed to achieve our target of reaching the group stages

KCCA won the game 2-0 courtesy of Henry Patrick Kaddu’s opener and Allan Okello’s late penalty.

The result though, decent on the chilly evening, was not good enough to see the 12 time Uganda Premier League through to the group stages of the tournament where each of the 16 clubs is assured of at least Shs 1.2 Billion.

The rains were so heavy that the astro turf at Lugogo was left flooded for long spells of the opening 45 minutes before they decreased in the closing stanza.

Despite the harsh weather, fans thronged Lugogo terraces and many carried umbrellas during the game.

The Congolese side booked their berth in the lucrative stage of  CAF Confederation cup group stages.
