It is a second consecutive Derby fixture as we take a very short trip to Lugogo to play against KCCA F.C.
In the first round at Bombo Military Barracks Grounds, a then very inform KCCA which had only conceded 1 goal was swept aside by a resilient SC Villa on matchday four. The game ended 2-1 with goals from Nicholas Kabonge and Ronald Ssekiganda.
SC Villa comes into this game on the back of a barren home draw against eternal rivals Express. Although Kaziba’s boys failed to find the back of the net for the first time in 4 league games, there were positives to pick from the game. The central defence pairing of Gavin Kizito and Geofrey Wasswa played a second game together. In both games, they have not conceded a single goal.
Going into this game, the Jogoos have won 3 consecutive away games in all competitions scoring seven goals in the process and conceding only two.
KCCA come into this game on the back of a 2-0 loss to URA F.C. They are one point and one place above SC Villa in 5th place.
