CAF CL: APR FC takes on Club Africain away in Tunis

Posted on Dec 04 2018

Rwanda champions APR face Tunisian side Club Africain in the return leg of the preliminary round of the Total Champions League scheduled for tonight at Stade Olympique 07 Novembre in Rades.

have to be on top of their game when they line up against Tunisian giants Club Africain this afternoon in the preliminarily round of Total Champions League second-leg clash at the Stade Olympique 07 Novemre Rades in the north African nation.

In build-up to tonight’s match, APR FC coach Jimmy Mulisa alluded to the fact that the team has the quality to rise to the occasion.

“No one is expecting us to beat Club Africain away but we can do so and we are telling the boys that we can win the game. We know the task at hand,” the former Rwanda international and APR forward told Times Sports.

Team captain Jean Baptiste Mugiraneza believes that his teammates have the ability to reach the next round.

Mugiraneza explained that, “We hope that we can overturn the result. When I look back at the first leg, even as we drew we created several goal-scoring chances but we were unlucky.”

APR will be looking to avoid the humiliation of 6-2 to Club Africain in the preliminary round of the same competition in 2011, when the two sides first drew 2-2 draw in Kigali before APR suffered a humiliating 4-0 defeat in return-leg in Tunisia.

Mugiraneza further explained that, “honestly you cannot say that Club Africain worked harder than us in Kigali. Of course, games are never the same but we are prepared to do everything posible to win the second leg and qualify for the next round.”

The game will be officiated by Hicham Tiazi, assisted by Lahcen Azgaou and Yahya Nouali.
