Tanzania: Yanga Face Tricky Kagera Sugar Hurdle Today

YOUNG Africans face a make or break fixture as they host Kagera Sugar in the quarterfinals match of the Azam Sports Federation Cup (ASFC) at the National Stadium in Dar es Salaam today.

The results of the game will determine which side deserve a place in the last four stage of the prestigious competition to face either Simba or Azam who face-off in another ASFC last eight battle at the same venue tomorrow.

In another match, Namungo FC will be at Majaliwa home arena to entertain Alliance FC in a sparkling match worth watching.

However, this is the only chance for Yanga to end the season with the title after missing out the opportunity to win the top flight league which has once again been grabbed by their rivals at the Msimbazi Street.

On several occasions, the club has been preaching that they have directed more energy to lift the ASFC title to earn a chance of playing in CAF Confederation Cup next season a prerogative enjoyed by the successful team.

Recently, Yanga Head Coach Luc Eymael was quoted as saying that their main focus now is on the ASFC contest, hence calling it a chance for him to lift his first silverware on Tanzania soil.

On the other hand, Kagera Sugar will be willing to maintain their superiority over the Jangwani Street based club as they outclassed them 3-0 in the first round of the Mainland Premier League at Uhuru Stadium in the city.

They are not a side to be written off prematurely especially during knock out matches and are also taking the game seriously to reach into the finals of the contest.
