APR head coach, Ljubomir ‘Ljupko’ Petrovic has urged his team to be aggressive when they take on Bugesera as the military seeks to maintain top spot in the Azam Rwanda Premier League this afternoon at Nyamata stadium.

After beating SC Kiyovu 3-0 last week, Petrovic will be hoping to see his men replicate their form by overcoming Bugesera, a tricky opponent to beat at home according to the Serbian tactician.

“To win the league, you have to be aggressive and consistent. Playing away to Bugesera won’t be easy. Players should display a fighting spirit if they are to get a positive result.” the 72-year old said.

Should the record 16-time champions, APR, overcome Bugesera, they will retain the lead with 40 points, two ahead of AS Kigali who have played one game less.

Meanwhile Bugesera coach Thierry Hitimana told Sunday Times that his side will play APR with full force and won’t be looking for anything less than a deserved home win as they bid for a historic top four finish.

The Bugesera district-sponsored side is in sixth place with 27 points after 19 league games played, seven wins, six draws and six losses respectively.

Elsewhere today, bottom side Miroplast host Kirehe at Mironko Stadium, while fourth-placed Kiyovu and Gicumbi tussle it out at Mumena Stadium.
