KCCA maestro Geoffrey Sserunkuma and a colleague

KCCA FC hosts Moroccan side FUS Rabat in the return leg of the CAF Confederations Cup this Sunday, following the arrival of the team on Thursday morning.

Mike Mutebi’s side lost 3-0 to FUS Rabat in the first leg on Sunday June 2 away in Morocco but will look for a revenge to keep their Cup quarter final hopes back on track.

KCCA lost its previous match in Nigeria, with two early goals from Bernard Ovoke and Fredrick Obomate, putting the Rivers United side on the front foot. However, Geoffrey Serunkuma reduced the hosts’ goal tally on the stroke of half-time but his effort wasn’t enough to get a positive result.
