RAYON SPORTS head coach Ivan Minneart will rotate his squad ahead of the upcoming fixtures that involve the Peace Cup, Azam Rwanda Premier League, and CAF Confederation Cup group stage matches.

Minneart has ruled out prioritising any of the three competitions that his team is involved in. Rayon Sports are set to play 28 matches in 10 weeks if they get to final of the Peace Cup, and could play more matches if they get progress past the Confederation Cup group stage.

“There’s a very tough schedule awaiting us in the coming few weeks. Luckily, we have a big squad of 30 players and everyone of them will play a part going forward so that there is no fatigue since we might play a match every four days until June,” Minneart said.

In the Azam Rwanda Premier League, Rayon Sports return to action against Bugesera this afternoon knowing that a win will make them join league leaders APR on 34 points with a game in hand. APR have a difficult match against second place AS Kigali tomorrow.

In other league matches today, Mukura entertain Etincelles while Musanze host Kirehe. Marines will play relegation threatened Gicumbi while Sunrise face Espoir.
