CAFCC: Bad day in office for KCCA as they lose first leg to Libyan side


Abu Salim will hold an advantage as they head to Kampala for the return leg after beating KCCA FC 3-1 at the Stade Olympique de Rades, Tunisia in the second Preliminary round on Sunday evening.

This was KCCA’s first time to play continental football in a while after receiving a bye at the first preliminary stage round.

Two first half goals in the 25th and 34th minutes were enough to show the Libyan side’s intent of widening the goal margin in first leg.

In the second half, Abu Salim FC added their third to seal their win on the day in the 70th minute.

However KCCA ‘s striker Abubakar Mayanja pulled one back with 10 minutes to end the game.

In the course of the closing half, defender Musitafa Mujuzi was shown red to leave the Visitors a man less.

KCCA will have to hold onto their away goal if they are to revive their hopes in a week time at the St Mary’s Stadium in Kitende.
