LUGOGO – Proline FC will be hoping to continue their decent run on the continent when they take on AS Kigali in the second leg of their first round clash in the CAF Confederations Cup 2019/20.
After drawing 1-1 away from home in the first leg, Proline are slight favourites to make it to next phase of qualification.
They have so far enjoyed a good debut season on the continent.
They eliminated Masters Security in the preliminary round 3-0 on aggregate and after the draw in Rwanda, confidence must be sky high in the camp.
After KCCA FC failing to capitalize on home advantage and suffering elimination from the Champions League, Proline must be cautious and avoid suffering similar fate.
What they are saying ahead of the game
Matia Lule, Proline FC head coach
“We got a good result and an away goal in the first leg but we should not get carried away as everything can change in an instant.
“Our task is to ensure we see out the advantage and progress to the next round.
“However we expect a tough match but i am confident my team will get the job done in the end.”
Mustapha Mujuzi, Proline defender.
“We the players are ready for the challenge ahead.
“We know it is going to be tough but we are in good condition to overcome the opposition and progress to the next round.
“We pray that God is on our side and we achieve the desired target.
Proline have been boosted by the return of Hippos duo of Bright Anukani and Ivan Bogeere. The two have been with the U20 that is currently taking part in the 2019 CECAFA U20 championships in Njeru and Gulu.
Anukani and Bogeere have so far scored Proline’s four goals in the competition with the former netting in the 1-1 draw against Kigali while the latter bagged a hat trick in the 3-0 win over Masters Security in the previous round.
