Vipers will be playing against Real De Bangui at home today, Saturday 17th infront of their fanbase with a 3 goal advantage.
The Venoms head into the game statistically stronger having convincingly won an away game the Congolese outfit last week.
The Real De Bangui will be looking forward to turning around their fortune in an uphill battle today at St. Mary’s stadium-Kitende in a decisive encounter.
Facing the Venoms in the presence of both the Venoms fanbase and the Uganda football fanatics who have been missing action amidst of the break in the professional leagues leaves the Central African Republic outfit with a big test ahead.
The Real De Bangui side however has a point to prove ,surfacing an 8 man squad at the stade Alphonse Massamba Debat in Congo Brazzaville on Saturday is what they consider as the unfortunate incident attributed to loss at their home ground.
In what seems to be an already finished job ,the Venoms head coach Robert Oliviera believes it’s not over done.
“We respect every team and are not taking our opponents for granted,”
“Our objective of making it to the next round is half done and we expect an even harder job on today.”
Coach Oliviera however claimes that the team is well prepared for the task ahead.
“I have prepared the team superbly well and everyone, from the players, the technical team and management is ready for the encounter.”
“This is what we have been building this team for. We are going to fight for everything this Saturday.”
The Brazilian tactician also confirmed the return of the hitman Yunus Sentamu who is expected to heap up pressure on the Real de Bangui defense on Saturday.
The aggregate winner will face TP Mazembe in the first round of the CAF champions league qualifiers.
