CAF Confederation Cup: AS Kigali begins quest against KMC

Posted on Aug 10 2019

Rwandan Peace Cup holders AS Kigali begins a tough Confederation Cup preliminary round tie against Kinondoni Municipal Council football club of Tanzania, with the first leg at home on Saturday, August 10 at Stade de Kigali in Kigali City.

Kick-Off is at 15:00.

It will be a stern early test of their potential, coming up against a side very much on the rise following their performances in last month CECAFA Kagame Cup Tournament.

Without their new recruits led by Amavubi skipper Haruna Niyonzima and Eric Ndayishimiye due to their club’s failure to secure their FIFA International Transfer Certificate, ITC ahead of the registration deadline, Coach Eric Nshimiyimana remains adamant that the club will register a good result in the first leg tie.

Speaking to local media, Nshimiyimana said, “We will miss them but we have good cover. Right now the mood and confidence in the team is high,”

AS Kigali need to win the tie and avoid conceding goals in their first leg match to have a chance of progressing to the next round pending on any goalless draws in the return leg in two weeks’ time.

KMC, Tanzania’s second representative in the Total CAF Confederation Cup are participating at the continental level for the first time ever after finishing fourth last season.

Former Uganda Cranes coach Jackson Mayanja wants a favorable result in the first leg before they can finish the off the game in the return leg due on August 23 in Dar es Salaam.

“We are here to register a good result before we take them on in the return leg. I am confident we can win and go through to the first round,” added Mayanja.

The winner between AS Kigali and KMC will play either Uganda’s Proline FC or Malawi’s Masters Security Service in the next stage.
