St Mary’s Stadium, Kitende

Saturday 30th September 2023

4pm

KCCA FC host Libya’s Abu Salim in the second leg of the second qualifier round of the CAF Confederation Cup in Kitende

Visitors Abu Salim SC were 3-1 winners in the first leg played in Tunisia a fortnight ago.

KCCA FC will need to score two unanswered goals to progress to the group stages.

In the event the visitors score a goal, KCCA FC will need to score four goals or score three and push the game to spot kicks and come out victorious in order to qualify to the group stages.

Abu Salim SC eliminated Tunisia’s Olympique Beja to make it to this stage while KCCA FC were handed a bye in the first round of the qualifiers.

KCCA FC Manager Sergio Daniel Traguil will surely need his troops firing from all cylinders if the first leg is to be overturned on Saturday 30th September 2023 in Kitende.

We want to make a response in the second leg. The players are ready and know the responsibility at hand. We believe it as a team and we will try to go and overturn the result. We need to be in control of the game and avoid the mistakes we made in the first leg and try to convert the chances we get then we shall have a chance. We will give it everything.
