  • Vipers Vs SC Villa [Agg: 0-0] – St. Mary’s stadium, Kitende 4pm

SC Villa Captain Bernard Muwanga insists that the Uganda Cup tie against Vipers is far from over ahead of a visit to St. Mary’s stadium, Kitende.

The first leg ended goalless draw at Mutesa II stadium, Wankulukuku but was marred by chaotic scenes full of tear gas and stones flying all over. 

The favour now appears to be with Vipers to progress but Muwanga thinks otherwise.

“A goalless draw means the tie remains evenly poised,” Muwanga told Airtel Football. “As a team, we would have loved to win the first leg but at the end of the day, 0-0 isn’t bad after all,” he added.

We shall go to Kitende believing we can do the job and reach the finals. Fortunately, we are relaxed and under no pressure.

I think we have been unfortunate in front of goal but the boys believe we can go there and do well. The past meetings have been so close which give us hope as well.

The visitors will continue to miss the services of first choice goalie Samson Kirya (Knee) and will be joined by forwards George Senkaaba and Alex Kitaata on the sidelines.

Nicholas Kasozi is also a doubt for the game due to a bout of malaria.
