The kasasiro boys came through the preliminary after beating Angola’s Primeiro de Agosto 2-2 away goals rule.

Before leaving for South Africa, KCCA coach Mike Mutebi emphasized respect but not fear for the South African side.

The tactician believes that starting with an away tie is an advantage to the team and urges his team to avoid conceding any goal to keep the advantage.

Should KCCA get past this stage they are assured of over a billion shillings in the group stages.

The two sides meet again the return leg on the 17th March at the Phillip Omondi stadium Lugogo
