Al Ahly boss Hossam El-Badry resigns

KCCA's Sadam Juma scored a cracker outside

KCCA FC are drawn in Group A with record winners Al Ahly (Egypt), two time winners Espérance de Tunis (Tunisa) and Township Rollers of Bostwana.

Uganda's representatives in the CAF Champions' league group stage, KCCA FC will today take on Egyptian giants Al Ahly at the Mandela National Stadium at Namboole stadium in the first ever Caf Champions League group stage match to be played on Ugandan soil.

Hossam El-Badry told Xinhua late on Tuesday after the game in Kampala that he has chose to leave the team.

El-Badry then returned to the Red Castle in the summer of 2012 to succeed the Portuguese coach but left again after one year to take charge of Libya's Ahly Tripoli.

The eight-time tournament victor was beaten in Uganda thanks to goals from Ibrahim Saddam Juma and Timothy Awanyi.

In the past two seasons, the coach won two league titles, one Egypt Cup and one Super Cup.

Kampala began with a 1-0 loss at fellow group newcomers Township Rollers of Botswana, making the Ahly clash a must-win affair for them to have a realistic chance of progress.

Away victories are rare in the group phase, but TP Mazembe of the Democratic Republic of Congo and Mouloudia Alger of Algeria bucked the trend in Group B.

Ben Malango and Aboubacar Sissoko were on target for five-time champions Mazembe as they triumphed 2-0 over Difaa el Jadida of Morocco.

Wydad top Group C with four points, Horoya of Guinea have three, Mamelodi Sundowns of South Africa one and Port are pointless.

Felix Badenhorst secured a 1-0 win for Mbabane Swallows over Primeiro de Agosto, and ES Setif suffered a 1-0 defeat to Algerian rival MC Alger thanks to an 89th-minute victor from Amir Karaoui.

Tunisian side Etoile du Sahel will host Zambian outfit Zesco United in the other group match tonight.
