Vipers’ head coach Fred Kajoba will be leading his side for the first time at this grand stage and against a more tested and experienced Sudanese opponent.
Vipers SC are eager to secure maximum points and score many goals despite not playing any major game this year. This will give them the impetus to go further in the elite league ahead of the trip to Sudan next week for the return leg at the Omdurman Stadium.
“We have been working on quite a lot and we are happy that the team is very positive. The lads are in great shape and beaming with confidence. We are keen to get the best results on Saturday,” Vipers Coach Fred Kajoba told the club website.
Vipers are keen on maximizing home advantage to avoid panicking in the return leg for any result less than victory today will prove disastrous in their pursuit for a group stages slot.
Vipers have only lost once at home in the CAF club competitions. They hope to bank on this slice of history to push them forward.
This will be the first time Vipers is meeting Al Hilal Omdurman. It’s the second time the former faces a club from the neighboring nation of Sudan.
Who will play
With Congolese import Ceasar Manzoki Lobi making his debut, Vipers are very much hopeful of good performance. The Congolese star joined Vipers last month from AS Vita.
Rashid Toha, Livingstone Mulondo and Mohammed Shaban, who missed last season’s action due to injuries are all back. They will be available for selection and are likely to have a decisive say in the match.
