Mutyaba who netted a brace in the first leg win last Saturday at the St. Marys Stadium, Kitende told URN that although they will not be over confident, he is optimistic they have a better team which will finish of the Rwanda team in Kigali.
“We need to be very cautious from the start of the game because the Rwanda team is very comfortable playing on the artificial pitch. We need to go out for early goals,” added Mutyaba who was also pivotal for Azam Uganda League Champions KCCA FC in the 2016-2017 season.
But coach Basena made it clear that the job is not done yet. “Football is a funny sport and anything can happen any time. We need to be very disciplined in Kigali because every team is comfortable playing at home,” he added.
While Rwanda coach Antoine Hey has included Ange Mutsinzi, Innocent Nshuti, Gilbert Mugisha and Ernest Sugira in the team, they will miss the services of experienced defender Aimable Rucogoza and striker Bernabe Mubumbyi who will serve suspension because of two yellow cards.
The overall winner on aggregate will book a berth to the final tournament to take place in Kenya between January 11 to February 2. The CHAN tournament is reserved for players who feature in their respective domestic leagues across Africa. Uganda has featured in the 2011, 2014 and 2016 CHAN tournaments.
