Uganda and Burundi are set to face off on Saturday, September 21 2019 in the CHAN qualifiers first leg in Bujumbura.
The two regional counterparts have met on various occasions but had not played each other since 2017.
It was in the 2017 CECAFA Senior Challenge cup in Kenya.
Uganda drew Burundi goalless in the group stages before the sides met in the battle for a third place finish.
It was a tight affair, and everything was going wrong for Moses Basena and his side after losing to Zanzibar 2-1 in the semis.
In the third place game, Burundi benefited from Benjamin Ochan’s error for Pierre Kwizera to score in the 23rd minute with just three minutes to the end of the first half.
Ibrahim Saddam Juma scored twice in the second half to hand Uganda a laboured win at Machakos.
The KCCA Midfielder volleyed in Nelson Ssenkatuka’s cross before converting from a freekick with just 15 minutes remaining to the end of the game.
