Uganda's representatives in the CAF Champions' league group stage, KCCA FC will today take on Egyptian giants Al Ahly at the Mandela National Stadium at Namboole stadium in the first ever Caf Champions League group stage match to be played on Ugandan soil.

"I think he has done his utmost recently winning the league he has done his bit".

The eight-time African champions Al Ahly are now bottom of Group A with one point, while Esperance are top with four points and KCCA FC second on three points.

The eight-time tournament victor was beaten in Uganda thanks to goals from Ibrahim Saddam Juma and Timothy Awanyi.

"In the first half we controlled the game and created many chances", said El Badry. Previously, the Reds suffered a 1-2 defeat against Zamalek in the Egyptian League; since then, Al-Ahly haven't won any game; they were eliminated from Egypt's Cup against Al-Assiouty in the quarter final with a 0-1 loss, and ended their match against Tunisian Esperance Sportive in Borg El-Arab stadium with a 0-0 draw.
