UPL: Who blinks first as SC Vipers tackles KCCA FC today at St Mary’s Stadium

On Tuesday this week, Vipers Sports Club ascended to the Uganda Premier League summit on goal difference after sealing it off late 3-1 against bottom placed Masavu FC at St Mary’s Stadium turf in Kitende.

Defending champions KCCA FC put up a dominant display as they humbled URA FC 7-2 at StarTimes Stadium thanks to Muhammed Shaban’s star performance that saw him appear on the score sheet four times. This Friday, Vipers will host KCCA in a highly anticipated encounter at St Mary’s Kitende.

Some may urge that it’s not a title decider but it’s a vital game for both sides in their race to supremacy. Last game the rivals played at Kitende, the venoms won 2-1 but their first encounter this season Kasasiro boys came on top in a 3-1 victory. Second placed SC Villa will be in the stands wishing for a stalemate as ahead of its Saturday trip to Kakyeka Stadium against resistant Mbarara City.
