MUBS vs Uganda Martyrs Wednesday 4th Spetember Nakawa, 3pm
The knockout stage of the Pepsi University Football League gets underway on Wednesday 4th September with Makerere University Business School hosting Uganda Martyrs University for the 1st leg of their quarter final tie at Nakawa at 3pm.
The two sides last met in the 2017 final at Namboole which Uganda Martyrs won 2-0 to lift the trophy for their first time.
Prior to that the two sides met in the 2015 Final which MUBS won 4-0 to lift the trophy for their second time.
MUBS coach Ayiekoh Charles expects the game to be an entertaining one that his side will win as they chase a record third Pepsi University Football League trophy.
“It’s been a long time since we lifted the UFL trophy and this year I feel that we have a very good squad that can lift the trophy again,” Ayiekoh said.
“Last year and in the first round this year the squad was still weak but now we have strengthened in all areas with some very good recruits and I expect we shall make it all the way to the Final,” Ayiekoh said.
“Uganda Martyrs are a good team. They are no longer the team used to be easily beaten and managed to beat us at Namboole in 2017. But out of the 7 games we have played each other we have won 6 and they have won 1 and I am confident that on Wednesday we shall make it 7 UFL wins against Uganda Martyrs.” Ayiekoh said.
Uganda Martyrs coach Mugerwa Noah however has different ideas about the game.
“MUBS are a strong team especially when they are playing at home. But we are also a strong team and the last time we met we won though on neutral ground. I expect it will be a tough game at Nakawa but I am confident that we shall come away with a win,” Mugerwa said.
