KCCA FC vs Mamelodi Sundowns

Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) football club take on Africa’s reigning champions Mamelodi Sundowns this Saturday at the Phillip Omondi stadium in the highly anticipated clash.

With the visitors carrying a 2-1 advantage from the first leg at the Lucas Moripe stadium, adiposity the pressure is on KCCA FC to make sure they overturn the defeat.

ChimpSport’s Joel Muyita looks at how KCCA FC could lineup against Sundowns in a (3-5-2 formation) according to reliable information.


Benjamin Ochan
Despite losing his father a day before the first leg, Ochan made the bold decision to go to South Africa and play. He is the first choice goalkeeper at Lugogo and will maintain his starting slot between the goal posts.


Mike Mutebi opted to play four defenders in the first leg but he is likely to shift back to three defenders.


Skipper Dennis Okot, Habib Kavuma and Timothy Awany are expected to be fielded in the 3 man defence.

The system creates room for two wing backs who literally play as midfielders during attack and fall back as makeshift fullbacks when defending.


Joseph Ochaya and Brian Majwega are expected to play wide as wingbacks with the former on the left while the latter on the right despite being right footed.

Isaac Kirabira is expected to be employed as the only holding midfielder with Isaac Ntege likely to be relegated to the bench.

Kirabira will closely play with Muzamir Mutyaba who is likely to play deeper with youngster Allan Okello given the creative midfielder role playing in front of Kirabira and Mutyaba.


Reliable goal scorer Geoffrey Sserunkuma will lead the attacking line with Paul Mucureezi playing right behind him as the supporting striker.

Mucureezi returns to the team after missing the game in Pretoria due to illness.

Probable KCCA FC starting XI

Benjamin Ochan, Dennis Okot, Habib Kavuma, Timothy Awany, Isaac Kirabira, Mutyaba Muzamir, Allan Okello, Geoffrey Sserunkuma, Brian Majwega, Paul Mucureezi, Joseph Ochaya
