proline players pray before the match

Uganda representatives in the CAF Confederations Cup, KCCA FC and Proline FC were both knocked out in the final qualification round and failed to make the group stages.

Libyan side Al Nasr Football Club rallied with a 2-0 victory over Proline in the return leg of the CAF Confederation Cup playoff at the StarTimes Stadium, Lugogo.

A goal in each half from Khalid Almaryami and Ibrahiem Osama Albedwi secured a spot for the Libyans into the CAF Confederation Cup group stages with a 4-2 aggregate win.

Paradou Athletic Club reached the Total CAF Confederation Cup group stage defeating Ugandan giants Kampala City Council Authority (KCCA) 4-1 in Algiers.

The Algerians took an early lead through Salaheddine Herrari after just nine minutes, but had to deal with a scare when Allan Okello equalized for the Ugandan champions after 23 minutes.
