Uganda to win
Uganda needs to win this fixture more than Kenya and we believe the hosts will put their best feet forward for a positive result. The hosts have not lost in the WCQ so far and will look to keep that run going. While they are safe in the second spot, Uganda can still secure the top spot in Group E and qualify for the FIFA World Cup. Kenya is a distance third and has nothing to play for in this game.
Uganda to score first
Uganda held their neighbours, Kenya, to a barren draw in the reverse fixture. They have been exceptional in this contest despite scoring two goals in four WCQ. The hosts have not conceded any goal so far. On the other hand, Kenya has leaked seven goals and scored once in four matches. The host should be on the front foot in this fixture.
We think this will be a one-sided scoring match. Kenya is poor offensively and defensively. And while Uganda hasn’t shown good attacking, they have a strong defence. The hosts should win this game with a clean sheet.

Game Preview: Uganda Upbeat about Playing in Qatar World Cup Next Year
With four games played and eight points collected, Uganda is in a tight position in their quest for a place in the 2022 Qatar World Cup. The hosts hope Mali can lose their next game against struggling Rwanda or get a draw to keep the competition going. For now, all Uganda must do all it takes to win this game. Kenya is already ruled out of the next World Cup after securing two points in four matches. The troubled Harambee Stars will travel amidst allegations of football mismanagement in the country. And with a new manager who has lost all his first two games in charge, this will be a tough match for Kenya’s Harambee Stars. As things stands, all conditions are in favour of Uganda Cranes and victory for the hosts is highly probable in this game.
