Kampala Capital City Authority will welcome Al Ahly for their second CAF Champions League, Group A match on Tuesday afternoon.

The Ugandans are still licking their wounds after losing 1-0 to Botswana’s Township Rollers a week ago in Gaborone in their first Group A match.

Coach Mike Mutebi’s men will need to remain disciplined at the back to avoid their second loss in their group stage campaign.

They sit at the bottom of the log table with zero points from a single game.

Mutebi will call on the likes of Derrick Nsibambi to be influential as they hope to win.

On the other hand, the Red Devils will be under pressure to secure their first win in the group away from home.

The North Africans drew against Esperance at home in Cairo where they failed to find the back of the net when the match ended 0-0.

On the log table, they occupy the third spot with one point from their opening encounter at Alexandria last week.

Hossam El-Badry’s men will look to Ahmed El-Shennawy and Phakamani Mahlambi for inspiration in Uganda to head back home with maximum points.

The Mandela National Stadium will be the venue for the tie which kicks-off at 15:00 (CAT) on Tuesday afternoon.
