CAF Confederation Cup: URA FC Out To Complete Job

Sunday, September 19
*Ethiopian Coffee Vs URA FC – 3pm

URA FC will seek to seal a place in the next round when they face hosts Ethiopian Coffee in the return leg of the CAF Confederation Cup preliminary round at Bahir Dar Stadium.

Steven Mukwala scored a brace last Sunday at Kitende but William Tesfay’s away goal gave Ethiopian Coffee some morale in a game that ended 2-1.

The Tax Collectors, under coach Sam Timbe, will need at least a draw to reach the next round.

“We need to be tight in our half, be disciplined and play as a team, and once we get the ball, we have to be fast on the break. We should press high,” stated Timbe.

“We have told the players to play as if we have no goal advantaged. So their task include looking for a goal.”

The winner over two legs will face off against Egyptian El Massry in the second preliminary round fixture for a place in the group stages.

The Tax Collectors who left Uganda on Thursday have all their players return negative Covid19 tests and have reported no new injury concern.

The hosts on the other hand, have Mikias Mekonen a doubt for the clash.

Ethiopian Coffee will need at least a 1-0 win to reach the next round of the competition.

Probable Lineups:

Ethiopian Coffee XI – Abel Gebreyohas, Abebe Feyissa, Wondeminhe Dereji, Haile Gebretinsae, Asrat Tonjo Toylo, Solomon Tefesse, Amanuel Yohannes Gamo (Captain), William Tesfay, Ahmed Abubeker, Yalem Debalke Endale, Alemu Yeabkal

URA FC XI – Alionzi Nafian, Ashraf Mandela, Derrick Ndahiro, Benjamin Nyajoojo, Hudu Mulikyi, Patrick Mbowa, Viane Ssekajugo, Shafic Kagimu, Said Kyeyune, Steven Mukwala, Joachim Ojera
