If there is any team capable of overturning a 4-1 goal deficit in Uganda today, it’s got to be Soltilo Bright Stars.

Prior to their unfortunate humbling by Police FC in the first leg of the round of 16, the most in form team in the league had won 5 games out of the previous 6.

They scored 13 goals in those six matches averaging at least 2.1 goals per game.

Police on the other hand have shipped 8 goals in their 5 games while playing away from Lugogo.

In today’s meeting, the 2019 finalists need to scorer 3 unanswered goals to progress thanks to their one goal scored away from home.

They will hope that starman Samuel Kayongo Sekamatte can replicate the form exhibited in the month of April that saw him score 8 goals.
