The Uganda Premier League champions beat Ethiopia's St. George 1-0 at the StarTimes Stadium on Saturday to advance on a 1-0 goal aggregate and become the first Ugandan club to ever advance to the group stages of the Champions League.
The visitors tried to fight back but failed to break KCCA FC's defence. Behailu Assefa and Abubekar Sani Abdela had their shots saved by KCCA FC's goalkeeper Charles Lukwago.
"This is a sweet win because we have qualified for the group stage. Last year we made it to the group stage of the Confederation Cup and now we are a step better," KCCA FC's coach Mike Hillary Mutebi said after the game.
Goal scorer Muhammad said he is very proud of being the man who netted the only goal. "It is a nice day to be part of this club and I look forward to the group stage," added the striker.
St. George's goalkeeper Odongkara who is also Uganda Cranes second choice goalkeeper said it was not their day.
