Pool A leaders La Jeunesse FC host Etoile de l’Est on match-day 6 in the second division league this afternoon at Mumena Stadium.

Nyamirambo-based La Jeunesse suffered their first defeat of the season on Wednesday, losing 1-0 to Kicukiro-based ASPOR but still lead the Pool A table standing with 12 points, one ahead of second-placed Pépinière.

“Losing and winning is part of football, after ASPOR’s defeat we immediately shifted focus to Saturday’s match against Etoile de l’Est. All players are fit and hopefully we’ll bounce back with a win,” la Jeunesse head coach Yves Namahoro said on Friday.

He also noted that his team’s top target is to return to the topflight division.
