APR FC has dropped three senior players ahead of this weekend‘s African Champions League second leg against Zamalek in Cairo, Egypt.

The trio include; defender Jean Bosco Uwacu, strikers Louis Philippe Belinga and Eric Serugaba. The trio featured in APR’s 1-2 first leg loss to Zamalek a fortnight ago in Kigali.

The Zamalek bound squad is comprised of custodian Aime Ndizeye and Mbuyu Twite who were suspended for the first leg. The pair was serving a one-match ban after earning red cards in last year’s champions’ league second round clash against Maranatha Fiokopo of Togo.

Others are Haruna Niyonzima, Kabange Twite and Jean Marie Vianney Rukundo who also missed the first leg due to injuries.

Cameroonian imports Sadou Boubakary and Atcham Atcham Jeannot who scored the consolation for the military side have earned calls from Coach Andia Mfutila.

APR will be trying to over haul a 2-1 deficit that they suffered in Kigali two weeks ago against the Egyptian side.   The military side under former coach Jean Marie Ntagwabira saw off Zamalek after a 6-4 goal aggregate in 2004. The winner between APR and Zamalek will face the winner between Tonnere FC of Benin and Africa Sports of Ivory Coast.
