Uganda’s representatives in CAF Confederation Cup qualifiers, Kampala Capital City Authority and Proline Football Club have crashed out of the competition following humiliating defeats yesterday.
Mike Mutebi‘s KCCA FC fell to a 4-1 defeat to Algerian side Paradou AC to wrap up their stay in any CAF Confederation Cup this year.
Following a goalless draw in Kampala, the Ugandan defending champions came into this match hoping to capitalize on their clean sheet to qualify to the group stages.
- Paradou AC 4-1 KCCA FC
- Proline 0-2 Al Nasr Benghazi
However, the home team was on top of their game on Sunday evening as they ran riot for 90 minutes of the game.
KCCA could not control the pressure from the hosts, Paradou AC who took an early lead in the 9th minute of the match.
Mike Mutebi’s side bounced back through youngster Allan Okello who levelled matters for the hosts who looked hopeless the entire game.
Immediately before half time, the hosts pulled a 2-1 lead over opponents KCCA from a well-converted penalty.
On commence of the second half, KCCA was capitalized to more misery as they conceded two more goals that ended their stay in CAF games this campaign.
The result means that the KCCA FC aka Kasasiro boys have bowed out of the continent missing out on at least two billion shillings for qualifying to the CAF Confederation Cup group stages.
Earlier, KCCA FC had been eliminated from the CAF Champions League at home at the hands of Petro de Luanda from Angola and this was their only chance to remain to participate in CAF competitions.
KCCA FC starting XI:
Charles Lukwago, Samuel Kato, Peter Magambo, Filbert Obenchan, Kizza Mustafa, Gift Ali, Muzamiru Mutyaba, Jackson Nunda, Allan Okello, Mike Mutyaba, Sadat Anaku
Subs: Jamil Malyamungu, Nicholas Kasozi, Herbert Achai, Hassan Musana, Musa Ramadhan, Eric Ssenjobe, Simon Sserumkuma
Meanwhile, Proline also bowed out of the CAF Champions League tournament after losing their last qualifying game to Al Nasr Benghazi at Star Times Stadium, Lugogo in Kampala.
Proline who had scored two goals on their away game after a 2-2 draw came into this encounter hoping to find ease in qualifying but it did not go their way as the visitors were the better team of the day.
Al Nasr Benghazi scored as early as six minutes into the game to record a half time win, they added the other in the second half.
