Kyambogo University v MUBS
Two-time champions Makerere University Business School (MUBS) take on former champions Kyambogo University in the Pepsi University Football League (UFL) in the first leg of their highly-anticipated quarterfinal tie.
The match, to be played on Tuesday, September 27 at Kyambogo playground, will be the seventh time the two sides are meeting in the last 10 seasons. MUBS has beaten Kyambogo University four times, including the memorable 2014 final at Namboole. The two sides have drawn three times.
To reach the quarterfinals, MUBS has had a perfect run winning all 6 of their games in Group B against Nkumba University, University of Kisubi and Muni University and finishing on top of the table.
On the other hand, Kyambogo won twice, drew once and lost once against Kabale University and Bishop Stuart in Group C, which had three teams.
Both teams are in high spirits coming into the game with MUBS coach Charles Ayiekoh saying it is going to be a great game of football.
“Any game against Kyambogo is a big game, it is a UFL derby and everyone is excited and looking forward,” Ayiekoh said.
“We are at a bit of a disadvantage since we have just come from exams and I know we shall need to double our efforts to win the game,” Ayiekoh added.
For Kyambogo University coach Christopher Lobo, the belief is high that this time round they will get the better of MUBS.
“We are also very ready and very excited about the game. Everyone is in good spirits and we are looking forward to a good game. MUBS is a good team and has been beating us but this time we have prepared and we are confident we shall win,” Lobo said.
“The team is fit, we have no injuries and everyone is set,” Lobo added.
