KCCA FC have avenged their first leg 2-1 loss to SC Villa compelled on them in the first leg.
Morley Byekwaso’s men have also in the process closed the gap on the runaway leaders to only 5 points. They go on 37 points against Vipers and URA’s 42.
Edwardo Kaziba’s obsession with employing the overly combative Amir Kakomo has been exposed further with the midfielder picking up his 7th yellow card of the season.
He was returning from a one match suspension after accumulating 3 yellow cards. He has so far served 2 bans this season.
His team lacked in possession for most of the time and when they got opportunities, they were put to waste by Francis Olaki and Nicholas Kabonge.
The lack of goals.
Among the top 6 clubs, Villa have the least number of goals with 23, almost a half of what Vipers with 43 have managed.
Villa’s top striker this season is Nicholas Kabonge with 5 followed by Abdallah Salim whom Kaziba prefers to keep on the bench.
The 16 time winners have only managed 3 wins out of the 10 games played on the road this term. They have drawn in equal measure and lost 4 matches.
The game at Lugogo lacked in excitement with the best opportunities coming towards the end.
Former Villa attacker Charles Lwanga exploited a lapse in concentration by the Villa defense to score for the hosts. A thorn in the skin for a team that groomed him .
What next ?
KCCA will continue pushing for a title challenge when they visit Mbarara city on April 21st whereas Villa have nothing left to play for having cemented their place in mediocrity.
Completing the schedule is their only agenda for they can nolonger push for the title yet they have garnered enough points to avoid relegation.
They host URA at Bombo Military grounds on 20th April 2021
