Sudanese giants El Merriekh are already in the country ahead of the CAF Champions League preliminary round return leg against Vipers SC at St Mary’s Stadium, Kitende.

The highly billed encounter is scheduled for Wednesday, December 2018 as Vipers SC bid to join KCCA FC as the other Ugandan side to qualify for the lucrative Group stages of the Caf Champions League under the revised set-up.

The Sudanesse arrived in wee hours of Sunday morning and checked in at Pearl of Africa hotel in Nakasero, Kampala.

Part of the reasoning behind their early travelling, three days to the game proper to be exact, was they wanted to play it safe because Sudan is experiencing flight connection problems.

Uganda’s representatives boast a priceless away goal scored by Dan Mzee Sserunkuma when they lost to El Merrich 2-1 in Khartoum last Wednesday.

If Vipers build on their one goal advantage and navigate past El Merriekh, the Venoms will then qualify to the final round (first round) to take on either CS Constantine from Algeria or Gambian Gamtel FC.
