Mutebi: Anything can happen on the day against Otoho d'Oyo
KCCA FC head coach Mike Mutebi has stressed that it's to be difficult to overturn a 3-0 loss against AS Otoho D'Oyo in the Caf Confederation Cup believes that anything is possible.
The Ugandan side needs to score at least four goals on Sunday, January 20 against the Congo-based side if they are to reach the group stages in the continental competition.
“We are going to do it the hard way,” Mutebi said. “But we have the capacity to correct the result,” he added before revealing there is a lot of belief in his players.
“My players have a lot of belief that they can do it. When the players believe in themselves, it’s a good sign and they have gathered enough experience to know how to negotiate such a tie.
I know it’s going to be hard but it’s achievable so that we qualify for the group stages because we believe we can achieve it.
KCCA have failed just once to score goals in a continental game in the last couple of seasons and that gives Mutebi the confidence in his team's ability to turn the deficit around come Sunday.
Mutebi said that the Congolese will be at their best because of the goal advantage on their side but he hopes they will be able to find a way to use their weaknesses against them.
“We have exemplified it here that we can score goals at home and the plan is to do it in the first half – get a good lead in the first half. With their advantage, they will be organised but the onus is on us to come to try disorganising their organisation.
KCCA have only scored three unanswered goals at home once – against Mtibwa Sugar in the previous stage of the Caf Confederation Cup.
