Mtibwa Sugar Fc

East and Central Africa champions Young Africans of Dar es Salaam play Mtibwa Sugar in a cutting edge Mainland Premier League match at the National Stadium in Dar es Salaam.

The regional champions and currently league leaders will be eyeing for revenge considering that the Turiani-based side hit them 3-0 in the first leg staged at the Jamhuri Stadium in Morogoro late last year.
 
The defeat contributed to the sacking of erstwhile Yanga coach Tom Saintfiet.
Replacement coach Ernie Brandts will need to be extra keen to avoid a repeat of the humiliation as Mtibwa Sugar knows where to hit Yanga, and could come close to winning again.
While Yanga will be targeting for revenge as well as extending their lead in the 14-team league, Mtibwa Sugar will be aiming to win both legs and prove to Yanga and their fans that they are a force to reckon with.
 
Yanga hit Tanzania Prisons of Mbeya  3-1 in their last weekend match staged on the same venue, while Mtibwa Sugar lost 0-1 to Polisi Morogoro.
However, losing at Turiani Manungu grounds doesn’t mean that Mtibwa Sugar will lose against Yanga.
 
Mtibwa Sugar have of late been a tough side especially when they play top teams in the country like Yanga and Simba.
 
Other matches in the menu today are Polisi Morogoro vs African Lyon (Jamhuri Stadium, Morogoro) and Mgambo JKT vs Ruvu Shooting (Mkwakwani Stadium, Tanga).
Yanga top the league with 32 points followed closely by Azam FC on 30 points.
