The StartTimes Uganda Premier League reigning champions SC Vipers face off with struggling SC Villa in one of the biggest rivalries in the Startimes Uganda Premier League game on Wednesday at Namboole National Stadium.
Espinoza Martinez’s men are looking forward to pound more misery on Moses Basena’s SC Villa who are yet to win a game this season.
Villa played to a goalless draw with Bright Stars in their last game at Mperewere whereas Vipers SC edged Nyamityobora FC by a Sserunkuma sole goal at St. Mary’s Stadium – Kitende.
The Venoms have won all their three opening league games, scoring four only conceding once so far this season and a win against SC Villa will take them back to the top of the table replacing KCCA.
The last meeting between the two sides last season in Masaka ended 0-1 in favour of Vipers who completed a double over the Jogoos.
Villa have won only one of their last eight home games against Vipers (D4 L3), their worst record against a Premier League team in that period.
The last meeting between the two teams last season in Masaka ended 0-1 in favour of Vipers who completed a double over the Jogoos.
Dan Sserunkuma is expected to lead the goal hunt for Vipers as Villa will be without Edgar Luzige and Yusuf Mukisa who are still struggling with injuries while Pius Wangi and Asharaf Mandela are yet to be cleared and are ineligible to face their former side.
