GASOGI United are keen on victory against Aspor when the two sides meet on Sunday as they seek to tighten their grip at the top of Group A table in the second division football league.

The game starts 3:30pm, at Kicukiro Stadium.

Marcel Lomami’s youthful side will be looking to bounce back to their winning ways after being held by lowly Rugende last weekend.

Ahead of Sunday’s match-day 21 fixtures, Gasogi and Vision FC are joint leaders of the group with 49 points, a whopping 16 points ahead of third-placed Vision Jeunesse Nouvelle and Sorwathe who complete top four – both level at 33.

Regardless of how the two sides, Gasogi and Vision, perform in their last two games, they have booked their tickets in the playoffs where eight teams – four from Group A and four of Group B – will be tussling it out for two spots to the 2019/2020 Azam Rwanda Premier League.

Speaking to Sunday Sport yesterday, Gasogi head coach Lomami said: “We want to win our remaining (two) fixtures and advance to the playoffs as group leaders, which would hand us a relatively easier path in the knock-outs.”

“Our ultimate target is to earn promotion to topflight league next season.”
