Al-Ahly loses 2 -0 to Kampala in CAF Champions League

The return of midfielders Saddam Juma and Muzamiru Mutyaba is a big boost for KCCA FC as they prepare to take on record winners Al Ahly (Egypt) today at Mandela National stadium, Namboole in the CAF Champions'League group stages.

"I think he has done his utmost recently winning the league he has done his bit".

The Egyptians, losing finalists previous year played a better first half but were a shadow of themselves after the break as KCCA scored through Ibrahim Sadam Juma and Timothy Awany late penalty.

Things may have been different had Al Ahly converted a penalty of their own in the first half but KCCA keeper Charles Lukwago saved Walid Said Ebeid's effort.
