Uganda Cup Final: Vipers Vs BUL: Team News, Preview, Probable Lineups and TV

Sunday, September 26
*Vipers Vs BUL FC

Vipers and BUL FC have all to fight for when the two sides meet in the Stanbic Uganda Cup final on Sunday at FUFA Technical Centre in Njeru.

BUL FC are outsiders and have surely punched above their weight to reach this stage after beating Express in the semis but will be hoping to create another upset in the final.

Vipers who have won the competition once, in 2015/16 when they beat Onduparaka in Nakivubo, will be the favourites but will not rest on their laurels having lost three finals.

They lost the first to URA in 2011/12 as Bunamwaya, fell to Victoria University the following year and later in 2018 to KCCA.

Vipers were barely troubled in the semifinal in a game the 2-0 scoreline loosely suggest how submissive Police were on the day.

However, against BUL, they face a resilient side as evidenced in their semifinal win against Express FC.

BUL FC eye Njeru as their second home ground due to its close proximity and have hosted league games at the place before.

Vipers will bank on their depth in quality and experience in their squad to get the job done.

*Eliminate Busoga United (5-1 on aggregate)
