Malawian top club Nyasa Big Bullets obtained an important point in CECAFA’s Kagame Interclub Cup on Wednesday by drawing Group A favorites Express FC of Uganda 1-1, keeping the Malawian side ahead of Tanzanian host club Young Africans SC based on goals scored. Chiukepo Msowoya scored the all important equalizer in the second half to cancel out an early goal from the Ugandan club and now a victory against South Sudanese side Atlabara will secure a spot in the semifinals for Big Bullets.
Express could have secured early qualification by holding onto the victory but now will need to get a result against Young Africans in their final group stage game, which could be a difficult task. Yanga struggled to a 0-0 draw against Atlabara but will have a chance to steal semifinal qualification with a victory against Express. Highlights from both Group A games are below.
