Uganda Premier League: KCCA host Vipers in a title decider

Must read

All eyes will be in StarTime stadium, Lugogo on Thursday afternoon when KCCA FC host defending champions Vipers SC in a highly-billed Uganda Premier League encounter.

Currently, KCCA lead the table with 52 points, four ahead of The Venoms. A win for the Kasasiro boys will stretch the gap to 7 points while a win for Vipers will put them one point behind the table leaders.

This happens to be the only chance for a silverware for both clubs this season following their exit from the 2019 Stanbic Uganda cup.

The Key stats; Vipers and KCCA will be meeting for the 28th time in the league with the Venoms slightly superior with a victory more than their opponents having 11 wins, 6 draws and 10 losses out of the previous 27 encounters, a total of 34 goals against 37 have been registered in the process making it a -3 goal difference.

The first round encounter at St Marys stadium ended in a 1-1 draw with Vipers scoring through Dan Mzee Serunkuuma before Filbert Obenchan equalised for KCCA and they could have clinched all the three points had Saddam Juma not missed a second half penalty.

KCCA shifted to the Startimes Stadium at Lugogo during the 2012/2013 football season and out of the 6 league fixtures hosted at the venue since then, Vipers counts 2 wins, 1 draw and 3 losses with a total of 6 goals against 7.

Vipers sports club boosts two KCCA old boys in its ranks namely Tom Masiko together with Tito Okello while the garbage collectors have four former Venoms within their squad in Saddam Juma, Allan Kyambadde, Sulaiman Mutyaba and Musa Esenu.

The corresponding fixture last season at Lugogo ended 3-1 in KCCA’s favour when Shaban Muhammed netted a double on his debut in between Yayo Lutimba’s thunderous penalty before a late howler from James Alitho allowed Derrick Nsibambi to score a third as Vipers desperately searched for the equaliser.
