Not only does Gamondi’s side boast the best offensive record in the division (56 goals scored), but also the team possesses the strongest defensive record (letting in 12 goals).

As for Kagera Sugar, nobody expect them to be challenging for a CAF Champions League spot during the business end of the season as they sit 7th on the log. However, this poses a great threat to the table leaders since it’s very tricky to play a side like Kagera with no serious pressure in anyway.

The Bukoba-Based Kagera Sugar: A Comprehensive Guide

Bukoba based Kagera Sugar is sitting seventh in the topflight, one point ahead of eighth-placed JKT Tanzania in the battle to secure top ten finish.

With five games to play, they need to grind out good results to secure a top ten finish. The side has struggled for wins in the league recently, recording just a win, and four draws in their last five matches.

They head into the Wednesday clash on the back of a goalless draw away to KMC at Uhuru Stadium last week. Any result does not affect them in anyway as they’re comfortably safe from the relegation threat.

Reverse fixture 

Kagera Sugar held Yanga FC to a goalless draw in the reverse match at Benjamin Mkapa National Stadium in Jangwani, Dar es Salaam this season, but the recent unbeaten run in five consecutive games should give them confidence ahead of this contest.


Slim hopes for Azam

Azam FC secured a hard-fought 1-0 win against Ihefu at the Azam Complex Stadium. Feisal’s decisive goal in the 13th minute proved to be the difference-maker in a tightly contested match.

Title hopes for the ‘Chamazi Millionaires’ seems to be diminishing as the gap to the top spot keeps widening. They’re trailing by eleven points, second on the log having garnered 54 points with a game at hand.
