CECAFA Kagame Cup: Azam face AS Maniema, KCCA up against Green Eagles in Semis

By Mugabe

Reigning champions Azam FC of Tanzania will face guest AS Maniema Union from DR Congo while Ugandan side KCCA FC will take on Green Eagles of Zambia in the semi-final round of the CECAFA Kagame Cup 2019 Tournament due on Friday.

The semi-final round pairing was complete after the final quarter-final match day was played on Wednesday at Stade de Kigali.

Three-time champions APR FC faced a disappointing exit as they bowed out 3-4 on penalties after a goalless draw in regular 90 minutes.

The military side had better opportunities but poor finishing from Sugira Ernest and Byiringiro Lague could not enable them break the solid AS Maniema Union who are managed by former TP Mazembe defender Guy Basisila Lusadisu.

AS Maniema Union had also a few chances with Likwela Yelemaya Denis and Kilangalanga Pame Glody testing APR FC new signing goalie Rwabugiri Omar but the former Mukura VS goalie made superb saves.

With a goalless draw in normal time, penalties had employed to determine the winner with AS Maniema Union winning 4-3 to send out APR FC and book their maiden semi-final round ticket on their debutant CECAFA Kagame Cup Tournament.

In an earlier game, Gor Mahia was knocked out of CECAFA Kagame Cup following a 2-1 defeat in the hands of Zambia side Green Eagles.

Seeking a fourth CECAFA title, K'Ogalo started the match in the right foot, taking the lead inside the second minute after forward Nicholas Kipkirui nodded home.

However, Eagles drew level five minutes later thanks to Tapson Kaseba's strike. The match ended with a 1-1 scoreline in the first half despite both sides creating a number of chances.

After the restart of the second half, Hassan Oktay's men went close to restoring their lead as Kipkirui was put through, one on one with the keeper but failed to capitalize on the chance. Eagles turned the tables as Shadreck Mulungwe scored the second for the Zambian side, a goal which was enough to see the Green Army beaten.

In the semi-final round, reigning champions Azam FC will face AS Maniema Union in the first semi-final on Friday while KCCA will take on Green Eagles FC in the second semi-final at Stade de Kigali. Timing will be confirmed on Thursday.

Courtesy of President Paul Kagame's support to the annual regional tournament, winners will pocket $30,000 (Rwf.27 million) in prize money, beaten finalists bag $20,000 (Rwf.18 million) while the second runners-up will walk away with $10,000 (Rwf.9 million), respectively.

Cecafa Kagame Cup: APR take on AS Maniema for semis spot

By Mugabe

It will be a Rwanda Vs DR Congo affair when APR FC and AS Maniema Union face off Wednesday evening in the 2019 Cecafa Kagame Cup quarter-finals.

The game starts 6:30pm, at Kigali Stadium.

Congolese side AS Maniema set up the APR clash for a spot in semi-finals after finishing second in Group D, thanks to the 2-1 victory over Djibouti's AS Ports in their final group game at Umuganda Stadium, on Sunday.

Three-time Cecafa winners APR progressed to the last eight in style after topping Group C with a maximum nine points. The army side matched into the knockout stage having scored six times without conceding a single goal.

β€œWe have shown that we are capable to win against anyone, Wednesday is a good challenge to prove it once more – when it matters the most,” APR interim coach, Jimmy Mulisa, told Times Sport on Tuesday.

However, the former APR and Amavubi forward is cautious of the fact that β€˜anything can happen in knockouts' and urged his players to bring into the game the best of their mental strength and hunger for club's first Cecafa Kagame Cup since 2010.

β€œAS Maniema may be debutants in Cecafa, but they are not a small team, and they showed it in the group stage. We need to be vigilant defensively and efficient in the attack,” added Mulisa.

In a separate interview, AS Maniema tactician Guy Lusadisu, also admitted that the game against APR is going to be tough, and challenged his players to focus on their game; not the opponent's.

He said: β€œBeing new in the tournament helps us not to fear anyone. We will just focus on our game, and make sure we are not intimated by our opponents' status or their home advantage.”

β€œWe are aware we are facing one of the best teams in the tournament, so the match is definitely going to be a tough one: probably on both sides.”

Courtesy of President Paul Kagame's support to the annual regional tournament, winners will pocket $30,000 (Rwf.27 million) in prize money, beaten finalists bag $20,000 (Rwf.18 million) while the second runners-up will walk away with $10,000 (Rwf.9 million), respectively.

The encounter between APR and AS Maniema will be preceded by another highly anticipated quarter-final pitting Kenyan giant Gor Mahia and Zambian outfit Green Eagles, starting at 4pm.

Gor Mahia reached the last eight as Group D leaders, while Green Eagles finished second in Group C.

Meanwhile, Rwandan champions Rayon Sports were bundled out of the same tournament after losing 2-1 to KCCA of Uganda.

Moustapha Kizza put the Kasasiro Boys ahead with a good goal in the 34th minute before Rayon Sports defender Rugwiro Herve equalized for the Blues in the 48th minute.

CECAFA Kagame Cup 2019: KCCA, Azam FC sail through to quarter-final round

By Mugabe

Ugandan league champions KCCA and reigning champions Azam FC sealed tickets to the quarter-final round of the 2019 CECAFA Kagame Cup after the climax of the Group B matches on Friday in Huye District.

A double header at Stade Huye decided Group B winners as KCCA edged home side Mukura VS 2-1 while Azam FC knocked out Kenyan side Bandari FC following a goalless draw.

The Kenyan side was in need of a win to be assured of reaching the last eight of competition having found themselves in a precarious position after failing to win their two opening matches.

Reigning champions Azam FC who needed a point to guarantee a slot in the last eight never made no mistake as they frustrated the Kenyans to a barren draw.

In the second game, KCCA defeated Mukura VS 2-1 courtesy of goals from Mike Mutyaba in the 5th minute and Allan Okello in the 42nd minute.

Mukura VS equalized late with two minutes to go through a penalty which was converted by Burundian import Gael Duhayindavyi.

With the final Group B matches winding up, KCCA tops the standings with seven points unbeaten in three matches, followed by Azam FC with four points while Bandari FC and Mukura VS lie third and fourth with three and one point respectively.

Final Group A action
The final Group A matches will be played on Saturday at Stade de Kigali with South Sudan representatives Atlabara FC taking on Congolese champions TP Mazembe in pursuit for their maiden win in the tournament. They drew 1-1 with KMC in the first match before losing to Rayon Sports FC 2-0 in the second match.

On other hand, TP Mazembe with three points will come all out blazing in search for maximum points to seal their second-place finish in the group or even overtake Rayon Sports should they fail to win their last match against KMC of Tanzania which will be played later at 18h00.

KMC have a point picked against Atlabara FC in their first game and suffered a slim 1-0 loss to TP Mazembe in their previous match.

Rayon Sports FC who have been in a fine form know that a win would comfortably seal their first place finish with nine points. Star striker Jules Ulimwengu currently has three goals, topping the goal scoring chart.

Probable quarter final pairing
In the first quarter final round due on July 16, KCCA might face former CAF Champions League champions TP Mazembe while Azam FC will take on Rwandan champions Rayon Sports FC should both Rayon Sports and TP Mazembe win their respective final Group A matches on Saturday.

In the second quarter final round due on July 17, APR FC might face AS Maniema Union of DR Congo while Kenyan side Gor Mahia will be up against Green Eagles of Zambia should they maintain their current standings in Group D going into Sunday's final matches.

The winner of the annual tournament stands to pocket $30,000 (Rwf. 27 million) in prize money while runners up will receive $20,000 (Rwf. 18 million) and $10,000 (Rwf. 9 million) respectively.

CECAFA Kagame Cup 2019: KCCA, Azam FC sail through to quarter-final round

By Mugabe

Ugandan league champions KCCA and reigning champions Azam FC sealed tickets to the quarter-final round of the 2019 CECAFA Kagame Cup after the climax of the Group B matches on Friday in Huye District.

A double header at Stade Huye decided Group B winners as KCCA edged home side Mukura VS 2-1 while Azam FC knocked out Kenyan side Bandari FC following a goalless draw.

The Kenyan side was in need of a win to be assured of reaching the last eight of competition having found themselves in a precarious position after failing to win their two opening matches.

Reigning champions Azam FC who needed a point to guarantee a slot in the last eight never made no mistake as they frustrated the Kenyans to a barren draw.

In the second game, KCCA defeated Mukura VS 2-1 courtesy of goals from Mike Mutyaba in the 5th minute and Allan Okello in the 42nd minute.

Mukura VS equalized late with two minutes to go through a penalty which was converted by Burundian import Gael Duhayindavyi.

With the final Group B matches winding up, KCCA tops the standings with seven points unbeaten in three matches, followed by Azam FC with four points while Bandari FC and Mukura VS lie third and fourth with three and one point respectively.

Final Group A action
The final Group A matches will be played on Saturday at Stade de Kigali with South Sudan representatives Atlabara FC taking on Congolese champions TP Mazembe in pursuit for their maiden win in the tournament. They drew 1-1 with KMC in the first match before losing to Rayon Sports FC 2-0 in the second match.

On other hand, TP Mazembe with three points will come all out blazing in search for maximum points to seal their second-place finish in the group or even overtake Rayon Sports should they fail to win their last match against KMC of Tanzania which will be played later at 18h00.

KMC have a point picked against Atlabara FC in their first game and suffered a slim 1-0 loss to TP Mazembe in their previous match.

Rayon Sports FC who have been in a fine form know that a win would comfortably seal their first place finish with nine points. Star striker Jules Ulimwengu currently has three goals, topping the goal scoring chart.

Probable quarter final pairing
In the first quarter final round due on July 16, KCCA might face former CAF Champions League champions TP Mazembe while Azam FC will take on Rwandan champions Rayon Sports FC should both Rayon Sports and TP Mazembe win their respective final Group A matches on Saturday.

In the second quarter final round due on July 17, APR FC might face AS Maniema Union of DR Congo while Kenyan side Gor Mahia will be up against Green Eagles of Zambia should they maintain their current standings in Group D going into Sunday's final matches.

The winner of the annual tournament stands to pocket $30,000 (Rwf. 27 million) in prize money while runners up will receive $20,000 (Rwf. 18 million) and $10,000 (Rwf. 9 million) respectively.

CECAFA Kagame Cup: APR FC thrash Heegan FC to topple Group C, Green Eagles eliminate Proline FC

By Mugabe

Three-time champions APR FC thrashed Heegan FC of Somalia 4-0 to extend their unbeaten run in the CECAFA Kagame Cup 2019 as Group C action came to a climax on Thursday at Stade de Kigali in Kigali City.

Earlier in the afternoon, Zambian guest side Green Eagles FC sent Ugandan side Proline FC packing as they registered their second victory of the tournament.

Proline FC needed at least a victory in the game against Zambian outfit Green Eagles to guarantee their chances of progressing to the knockout stage.

However, Shafik Bisaso's side were condemned to a 2-1 loss at Stade Kigali hence their journey at the regional tournament coming to an end.

Kennedy Musonda scored a brace to guide Green Eagles to victory netting a goal in either half.

Hakim Kiwanuka pulled one back for Proline FC in the 51st minute but this at the end settled for a consolation goal as the 2018-19 FUFA Big League champions bowed out.

Proline FC had earlier suffered a 1-0 loss to APR in their opening game before they won 2-0 against Somali side Heegan FC.

In the second game, APR FC who had already sealed their last qualification fielded majority of their second-choice players against Heegan FC but that didn't stop them from registering the biggest victory in the tournament so far.

Star striker Dany Usengimana scored the quickest brace of the tournament in the 1st and 3rd minutes of the game converting two set-pieces from new left back signing Claude Niyomugabo.

The former AS Kigali left-back Niyomugabo scored the third goal in the 15th minute after dribbling past three defenders to plant the ball into the ceiling of the goal net.

In the second half substitute striker Mugunga Yves came off the bench, replacing Usengimana to score the fourth goal in the 83rd minute after Heegan FC tried to dribble a backpacks only for Mugunga to beat him off before squeezed the ball into the empty net.

With the result, APR FC who have nine points and Green Eagles FC with six points advanced to the quarterfinals from Group C while Proline FC with three points and Heegan FC-pointless bowed out.

APR FC and Green Eagles FC will wait to know their quarter final round opponents after Group B action on Friday.

Tough Group B Battles
Group D comes to a climax on Friday at Stade Huye with intriguing matches which will see Kenyan side Bandari FC taking on reigning champions Azam FC at 15h30 while Ugandan league champions KCCA take on home side Mukura VS.

KCCA tops the group standings with four points secured from an opening draw against Bandari FC and a win over Azam FC in their second match.

Azam FC lie in second slot with three points while Bandari FC are in third spot with two points while Mukura VS lie bottom of the group with one point.

All the four teams will be seeking a win to remain in the tournament. Anything short of a win will send two teams home and grant two teams to the quarter final round.

The winner of the annual tournament stands to pocket $30,000 (Rwf. 27 million) in prize money while runners up will receive $20,000 (Rwf. 18 million) and $10,000 (Rwf. 9 million) respectively.

By Mugabe
