Uganda Premier League side, Kampala Capital City Authority will want to retain the full three points as they host FUS Rabat on Sunday in their CAF Confederation Cup tie.
KCCA coach Mike Mutebi will push his defence to close the back door as they have conceded seven goals from four matches.
Although all teams in Group A have six points each, they are separated on goal difference and this means KCCA will have to win and not concede goals at the same time.
The Ugandans recently succumbed to a 2-1 loss at the hands of Rivers United in Nigeria and this encounter puts them under pressure to win at home.
Although they lost the opening match 3-0 in Morocco against FUS Rabat, they now have to find a way to avenge that defeat.
Looking at the Moroccans, Rabat are sitting at the top of the table with six points but have only conceded four times whilst netting six times.
Heading to the Kampala-based outfit, Rabat will definitely seek a victory to make it two wins over their hosts in the competition.
Although they are coming from a 2-1 loss against Club Africain of Tunisia, the encounter in Uganda means there will be goals as both camps will need to win on Sunday.
The highly anticipated clash will be staged at the Phillip Omondi Stadium in Kampala on Sunday, getting underway at 15:00 (CAT).
