Nyamityobora’s skipper Clinton Kamugisha pulled one back midway through the first stanza but Sadat Anaku got the third goal for KCCA FC and they led 3-1 heading into the mandatory break.

Upon restart, the Abanyakare looked rejuvenated and Kamugisha got his second on the day as hopes of a comeback were revived.

However, second half substitute Sam Ssenyonjo put the game beyond reach in the 85th minute thus enasuring KCCA FC carry a big advantage in the return leg.

Nyamityobora FC therefore, will have to win 2-0 at Kakyeka Stadium to advance to the round of 16.
