Police goalkeeper Marcel Nzirora converted the winner after his opposite number fired wide, handing Police 9-8 victory in a closely contested match at the Kigali Regional Stadium.

Atletico missed three penalties while Police missed twice, including the decisive fifth shootout penalty, with both custodians saving one a piece.

The game had ended goalless in regulation time with no extra time added.

The win means Police have not lost any of their last four games, having qualified for the quarterfinals with maximum points.

Next up is the quarterfinal tie between Rwandan giants and archrivals APR FC and Rayon Sports, a mouth-watering clash.

The game also takes place at the Kigali Regional Stadium.
