Kibuye vs Muhanga
La Jeunesse vs Nyanza
KIBUYE coach Casimir Nkurikiye is determined to guide his club back to the top flight by defeating Muhanga in the playoffs.
The Eastern Province side was relegated last year but Nkurikiye is upbeat the club can make a gigantic step towards returning to the lucrative Primus league by securing a win in Saturday’s first leg at Gatwaro stadium.
“Our fans were disappointed last season when the club was relegated but the players have done a wonderful job by qualifying for the playoffs.
“Now, it is important that we get a result on Saturday to give us the upper hand in the return leg.”
In the other play-off contest, La Jeunesse will battle Nyanza.
The winners over two legs will earn promotion to the Primus league.
Meanwhile, all second division clubs will pocket Rwf0.5m this season from the recently signed Rwf335m partnership deal between Bralirwa and the national football federation (Ferwafa).
