Kampala University has a point to prove to MUK that they are the Kings of East Africa when they encounter each other in a do or die anticipated match at Villa Park.
On the other hand MUK has to prove its supremacy of being the defending champions of the UFL.
Felix Apuyo and Brian Arigaba have much to prove to manager Titi Kamara their abilities on the pitch as they were late entrants after the dropping of the two versatile midfielders mentioned above due to age factor as per the rules governing the league.
Two teams with an eye on the top tier meet at Villa Park where Kampala University can prove just what a fortress they have made their home, having lost none in their friendly matches. MUK, though, will be chomping at the bit after scoring 5 goals in their last game.
KU’s fans know that while their team usually scores, it also keeps a clean sheet, so goals should be on the agenda again.
But they may be afraid of MUK whom they claim they didn’t have chance of playing them in the East African games.
