The StarTimes Uganda Premier League has two teams in the competition and both have chances of making it happen.

The league champions KCCA FC will need to win when they face off with Algerian outfits Paradou A.C at Stade du 5 Juillet 1962 on Sunday November 3rd 2019. The two sides played to a goalless draw when they met at StarTimes Stadium Lugogo in the first leg.

A win for or scoring draw will see KCCA progress, while a win for Paradou will see the Algerian through, a goalless stalemate will see the game head into penalties to determine the winner.

The other Ugandan side Proline FC have an upper hand of qualification to the group stage compared to KCCA FC. The Uganda Cup winners twice came from behind to force a 2-2 draw against Libyan outfit Al Nasr Benghazi.

A scoreless or one-all stalemate will be enough to book Proline a historic place in the Confederations Cup group stages while Al Nasr must win or pick a draw of more than three goals to progress.

In Kenya, Shafik Batambuze’s Gor Mahia will be aiming for a win when they travel to Stade des Martyrs to take on DR Congo side Motema Pembe. The two sides settled for a one-all stalemate when they met in the first leg in Kasarani last Sunday.

A goalless stalemate or a win will see the hosts qualify for the group stages while the visitors will need a draw of more than one goal or a win to make it to the group stages.

In Morocco, Patrick Kaddu’s side RS Berkane side need to overturn a 2-0 first leg deficit when they host Madagascar’s outfit Fosa Juniors at Stade Municipal de Berkane. The Oranges will need to win 3-0 or register any scoreline of a three goal difference if they are to progress.

Uganda Cranes star Abdul Lumala and former Cranes head coach Sebastien Desabre will feature for Pyramids FC when they welcome Juma Balinya’s Young Africans at the 30th June Stadium. The hosts enter this game with the upper hand after registering a 2-1 win in Tanzania in the first leg.
