Played in-front of a fair crowd at the Philip Omondi Stadium, the first half ended goalless. Later the KCCA FC coach made some changes after recess before Sserunkuma finished off a Brian Majwega corner kick.
The visiting side coached by Bosnia’s Dragan Jovic continued to pin KCCA FC in their half but lacked the finishing punch. Salomao Troco and Isaac Da Costa all had some scoring chances but their shot missed the target.
KCCA FC defender Timothy Awany almost scored in his own net when he headed a back pass which the goalkeeper Benjamin Ochan was quick to punch away for a corner kick.
KCCA FC coach Mike Mutebi was not so happy with the slim win saying they missed several scoring chances. “I am not so impressed with this win. We need to go back to the drawing board,” Mutebi said after the match.
His counterpart Jovic said he is happy they lost by a small margin away from home.
“I am optimistic we can also get a good win in Luanda and qualify for the next round,” he added.
The return leg takes place on Sunday, 19 November 2017 in Luanda with the winner over two legs facing holders Mamelodi Sundowns of South Africa for a place at the group stage.
