URA FC quest to renew rivalry as they host SC Villa at the commencement of the second-round fixtures of the StarTimes Uganda Premier League 2019/2020 season.

The game will be hosted at the Arena of Visions Stadium which also doubles as the main Stadium for the University of Ndejje along Bombo road. This will be the host ground for URA FC for all second-round games of the 2019/2020 season.

This to many is regarded as the clash of the titans but regardless of which perspective one views this magnificent fixture, it still does possess that agita of unpredictability and less empathy.

Ntege Ivan calmly controls the ball in the first leg against Villa.

One thing is for sure though, the tax collectors will be in research for a positive but heartfelt result as did last season under the same circumstances. (URA FC won 1-0 against Villa in the opening game of the second-round fixture of the 2018/2019 season)

That sole goal from URA FC’s Patrick Mbowa at the Mandela National Stadium handed the bragging rights to the tax collectors and might do again if history is anything to go by.

TEAM NEWS

Ronald Odokonyero, Mbowa Paul Patrick and Najib Fesali are out with injuries and are not legible for selection.

Brian Majwega and Dada Ibrahim Juma will also not be able to feature for Sam Ssimbwa due to illness.

Majwega and Ojera celebrate after the former converted from the spot to give URA the lead against SC Villa in the first round.
