KCCA FC needed substitute Derrick Nsibambi to score the late winner as Sserunkuma got shut-out.  

KCCA FC needed a late winner to draw first blood in the CAF Confederations Cup playoffs against Egyptian side Al Masry. Substitute Derrick Nsibambi’s stoppage time well directed shot was enough to give KCCA FC their only goal of the game after talisman, Geoffrey Sserunkuma had been shut out until substitution by the aggressive Al Masry defense.

KCCA FC Might have maintained possession for the bigger portion of the game but were unlucky to have scored only one goal after missing a number of open chances, most notably when Brian Majwega hesitated to shoot at goal in the penalty area in the first half.

Derrick came on for Muzamir Mutyaba in the 57th minute of the game and was lucky to produce the performance that Sserunkuma failed to put up.

Other substitutions included Robert Ssentongo coming on for Geoffrey Sserunkuma in the 75th minute, five minutes after Ivan Ntege had been introduced for Allan Okello.

The second leg will be played in a week’s time away in Egypt as City Council seek their final attempt to the group stages of Continental football.
