Odongkara predicts tough and tricky return leg with KCCA | CAF Champions League

CAF Champions League (1st Round, Return Leg):

  • Saturday, 17th March 2018
  • KCCA (Uganda) Vs. St George (Ethiopia) – Lugogo Stadium (Agg: 0-0)

St George first choice goalkeeper Robert Odongkara has predicted a tough and tricky return leg with KCCA FC in the CAF Champions League final round.

Odongkara kept a clean sheet as his side held on for a goalless draw at home.

In an exclusive interview with the gangly shot stopper from his Addis Ababa base, he believes all could work against the hosts at Lugogo.

“The return leg will be a tricky game because both clubs shall be playing for a qualification slot to the group stages,” he said.

“The most tactical and organized team will surely merge victorious in this match.”

In the first leg, KCCA got closest to breaking the deadlock when Derrick Nsibambi’s powerful header off Mustapha Kizza’s teasing cross hit the woodwork.

The home side’s lethal striker Abubaker Sani was also denied by Filbert Obenchan’s timely tackle.

St George XI vs. KCCA in the first leg: Robert Odongkara (GK), Mentsenot Adane, Tamene Asechalew, Barbacho S, Saladin Bergicho, Butako Abebawe, Mullualem Mesfin, Abdulkerim  Nikima, Gadissa Meberate, Amara H, Sani Abubeker (Said S)
