Etincelles 0-2 APR
Mukura 0-0 AS Kigali
Champions APR continued to impress in the Azam Rwanda Premier League as Emmanuel Imanishimwe scored twice in a 2-0 win over Etincelles at Umuganda Stadium on Tuesday.
This was the military side’s fifth win – and fifth cleansheet – in a row since the start of the 2018/2019 season on October 19.
Full-back Imanishimwe scored in either half as APR remained the only league side yet to concede a goal, and yet to drop points this season following the goalless draw between Mukura Victory Sports and struggling AS Kigali at Huye Stadium.
Going into match-day 5 on Tuesday, APR and Mukura were joint leaders with 12 points.
Imanishimwe broke the deadlock in the 27th minute before making it 2-0 for Ljubomir Petrovic's black and white outfit in the 65th minute.
“It is always a great feeling to score goals, especially when you are a defender, because it brings more confidence. However, my wish is to see my team winning more games and maintaining the momentum,” brace hero, Imanishimwe, said in a post-match interview.
He further noted that: “I am fighting to get back to my best after a series of injuries last season, I believe I will continue to improve and get much better with time.”
APR top the table standings with 15 points, two ahead of second-placed Mukura.
