It’s exactly seven days to make a year since KCCA were crowned league champions for the eleventh time in history.

On the big day at Nakivubo stadium, they drew 1-1 with Sadolin Paints but that didn’t matter as they had already clinched the championship a couple of days to the final game of the season.

Coincidentally, the Kasasiro will again be crowned champions and at home, they host Sadolin Paints.

Not Nakivubo though, it’s at their real home – Phillip Omondi stadium, Lugogo.

Mike Mutebi, the coach at KCCA says the game is as important as the previous 29 as they seem to keep the winning touch ahead of the CAF Confederation Cup duel against Club Africain of Tunisia on Tuesday.

“If we win, we finish the season on 66 points,” he said. “That’s how important it is and it won’t be just a walk in the park,” he added.

We are taking it very seriously. That mentality of saying the league is won, yes, it’s won but we have to keep that winning mentality going into continental engagements.

The gaffer has revealed the only confirmed absentees for the tie are Timothy Awany (suspension), injured Muzamiru Mutyaba and the young Allan Okello who is away on school duty.

KCCA won the title more than a week ago when they beat Lweza 2-0 at Lugogo and play against a side relegated early this week when they failed to pick at least point at home to Express FC.

But like KCCA, they are still contention for the Uganda Cup where they lost their first leg semi-final, 2-0 against Paidha Black Angels.
