The Uganda Premier League returns tomorrow (16/04/2021), with Vipers FC travelling to Kitara FC and URA at home to Bul FC. The two teams are going next to next against each other in this year’s Uganda Super League title race.

Both teams will be back in action again tomorrow after both winning all the matches during the midweek fixtures keep pressure on each other at the summit of the table.

Vipers Football Club will travel away to play Kitara FC, who played Onduparaka FC in the midweek and was beaten 2:1 at the Greenlight stadium in Arua. The home team will look to utilize their home advantage to get something in tomorrow’s game, but truth be told Vipers FC are favorites to win this game with any difficulty and my prediction is 4:0 to Vipers.

URA after defeating KCCA 2:0 midweek and moving to the same level of points with Vipers who have a superior goal difference, will be expecting that the league top scorer in Steven Mulwala will spur them against Bul FC at home tomorrow. Sam Ssimbwa’s side need more than just luck this season if they are to win the Uganda Premier League trophy again after 10 years of playing second fiddle to both Vipers and KCCA.

They need to keep up the momentum in order to put up a good challenge for the defending champion Vipers, and if they are to have any real chance of winning it, they need to win games such as the one against Bul FC tomorrow.

It remain to be seen though as to whichever team utilized their advantage well to keep up the pace at the summit of the table, but I for once expect both of them to be able to win in tomorrow’s fixtures


URA Vs Bul FC (2:0)

Kitara FC Vs Vipers FC (0:4)
