Uganda’s Sports Club Victoria University (SCVU), the only side not to concede a goal in the tournament will be playing  Kenya’s giants, AFC Leopards in a mouth watering clash slated for 8 pm.

AFC Leopards will miss the services of Noah Wafula and Bernard Mang’oli . The duo were red carded in the semi final clash against Academie Tchite.

Also out for the Ugandan side are strikers, Noah Ssemakula, Simon Okwi and Dan Nsubuga (all injured).

However, the Ugandan side boosts of the most attack minded midfield department of Muzamiru Mutyaba (2 goals) and Jackson Kibirige (3 goals) though the strikers, Mathew Odong and Ceaser Sapewo have had an off colour tourney.

At the back, goalie Benjamin Ochan, center halves Murushid Jjuuko, captain Martin Mpuuga, full backs, Brian Ochwo (left) and Dennis Okot have been very alert never to let in any goal in the 5 games played thus far.

AFC Leopards’ main threat lies in Paul Were, an intended target for money moguls, Al Merreikh and Ugandan International midfield icon, Mudde Musa, who has scored 2 goals so far in the tournament.

In the third place match (will be played at 6 p.m),  home side, Al Shandy (Sudan) will be taking on  Academie Tchite (Burundi).
