Ugandan champions KCCA FC are already in Botswana capital Gaborone for their first leg of the CAF Champions League group game against Township Rollers.
Before departure this morning, KCCA won a hard fought league match against Express FC condemning them to a 2-1 defeat that could partly spell doom for the Red Eagles at the end of the season.
Manager Mike Mutebi hinted on retaining the same line-up he used on Tuesday with only first half substitution Isaac Kirabira the only doubt.
KCCA will visit the Botswana champions first before hosting Egyptian giants, Al Ahly at Namboole.
Al Ahly will start their campaign against Tunisia’s Esperance on Friday.
The Egyptian FA has allowed only 15,000 to watch the game at the 86,000-seat Borg El-Arab stadium to avert fan violence.
The travelling contingent comprises: Habib Kavuma, Lawrence Bukenya, Derrick Nsibambi, Tom Ikara, Mustapha Kizza, Paul Mucureezi, Denis Okot, Paul Musamali, Isaac Kirabira, Julius Poloto, Jackson Nunda, Allan Okello, Fillbert Obenchan, Jamil Malyamungu, Shaban Muhammad, Patrick Kaddu and Timothy Awany.
