Uganda Cup – Semi Final

FUFA Technical Centre


Kick-off: 3pm

BUL FC to battle NEC at FUFA technical centre on Sunday afternoon for a place in the final of this year’s Stanbic Uganda Cup. It is the second meeting between the two teams in a space of five days but their third faceoff this season in all competitions.

The sides met in midweek where the Diehards won 1-0 at MTN Omondi Stadium in Kampala to halt BUL’s four game unbeaten run.

The result complicated BUL’s title charge as it pushed the Eastern Giants further down into the third position on the table. Abbey Kikomeko’s men will therefore seek a first leg advantage over the visitors and ultimately shoot for a place in the final.

Despite BUL’s second round performance in the league being a bit of a roll coaster, their showings in Uganda Cup have been arguably impressive to say the least. The Eastern Giants have already knocked out record winners Express and KCCA, while they also shown Kyambura Rasters and Simba FC the exit in the early stages of the competitions.

Winners of the 2021/22 edition, BUL will be making their fourth appearance at this stage but it is going to be just the seventh game for NEC in this competition.

But Hussein Mbalangu and his boys can sometimes be tricky and have already shown a big muscle in Uganda cup this campaign having won all their games in the 90 minutes and with just two goals conceded.
