With the chances of winning the league title all but over, AS Kigali travel to Bugesera Stadium hoping to snatch a crucial away win against Bugesera FC as they continue to push for a position in the top half of the table.

The match gets underway at 3pm.


Ahead of the clash, Bugesera are in seventh place with 23 points, four ahead of the 12th-placed AS Kigali. Both sides played out 2-2 draw in the first-leg at Kigali Stadium last October.


AS Kigali coach Eric Nshimiyimana admits that, “It is not going to be easy against Bugesera at their home, so we must be ready for the game.”


“Getting three points today is vital.”

The Peace Cup holders will be without midfielder Eric ‘Zidane’ Nsabimana due to three cumulative yellow cards, while Bugesera head coach Djuma Masudi will also not be on the touchline due to suspension.

The hosts will be looking to bounce back after losing 2-1 to leaders APR last weekend, while AS Kigali held Rayon Sports to a goalless draw.
