[Updated]: Rivers United Fc in Kigali ahead of Rayon Sports clash

Posted on Apr 21 2017

The Nigerian side Rivers United Fc delegation arrived in Kigali on Thursday night ahead of the return leg of the CAF Confederation Cup Playoff against Rayon Sports scheduled to be staged at Amahoro Stadium on Saturday.

The Port-Harcourt based side which is residing at Classic Hotel in Kicukiro will train at Friday afternoon at Amahoro Stadium.


The Nigerian side Rivers United Fc delegation is expected in Kigali on Thursday night ahead of the return leg of the CAF Confederation Cup Playoff against Rayon Sports scheduled to be staged at Amahoro Stadium on Saturday.

The Willy Udube led side arrives at Kigali International Airport at 9pm aboard RwandAir from Lagos, Nigeria.

Rivers United chief coach, Udube, says they will work hard at avoiding a repeat of what happened against El Merreikh of Sudan when they face Rayon Sports on Saturday.

Despite taking a 3-0 first leg advantage to Omdurman in the CAF Champions League, Rivers United still crashed out after losing 4-0 to go out 4-3 on aggregate.

And ahead of their second leg clash against Rayon Sports, with Rivers United taking a 2-0 first leg lead to Kigali, Udube said the game against El Merreikh still haunts them, that they will fight to win this time around.

Peace Cup holders Rayon Sports stumbled in their pursuit to become the first Rwandan club ever to reach the group stage of the continent’s second biggest club competition, losing 2-0 at the Yakubu Gowon Stadium in Port Harcourt, last Sunday.

Goals in either side of half time from Emeka Atuloma and Guy Kuemian put the Nigerian side in the front seat ahead of the second leg. Rayon Sports head coach Djuma Masudi believes his team can overturn the first leg deficit.

The Blues have a big task to overcome as they are required to win 2-0 to take the tie into extra time or 3-0 to advance to the group stages.

However, Masudi will miss the services of key midfielder Fabrice Kakule Mugheni, who is suspended for the second leg match after receiving a yellow card during the first match, which was the second booking in two consecutive matches.

The good news for the Peace Cup holders be welcoming back their top scorer Shassir Nahimana, who has scored 12 league goals who missed the first leg due to illness and defender Ange Mutsinzi who was suspended for the first leg.
