Kampala Capital City Authority claimed a 3-1 win over FUS Rabat in their CAF Confederation Cup, Group A match held at the Phillip Omondi Stadium in Kampala on Sunday.

Goals courtesy of Geofrey Sserunkuma, Ibrahim Saddam and one through Isaac Muleme ensured Mike Mutebi's troops bagged the full three points.

In the wake of the victory, the Ugandan giants now sit at nine points at the top of the group and will wait for the result between Rivers United and Club Africain later on Sunday.

However, they still have to meet Club Africain to wrap up their group stage assignments on Friday, July 7 in Tunisia and ensure they reach the knockout stages.

The Ugandans went into the encounter hoping to bag a win as they wanted to avenge their 3-0 loss at the hands of their visitors in the first round.

It was 1-0 at half time for the Ugandans after Sserunkuma's opening goal.

In the second half, they managed to bang in two goals through Saddam and Muleme.

With just five minutes remaining on the clock, Lamina Diakite pulled one back for the visitors after an assist from Mehdi Bettache.

For the Moroccans, the defeat leaves them sitting at number two in the group with six points from five matches.

On the other hand they will now hope to beat Nigerian side Rivers United in their final group match at home next weekend, July 7.
