Kawempe Muslim Ladies FC will visit Uganda Martyrs Lubaga WFC in today’s action.

The two teams will be out for an early semifinal first-leg advantage.

The last time they met was in the FUFA Women’s Super League that saw Kawempe best Martyrs 3-1 on their home soil.

However, Martyrs have won four of their last six meetings against Kawempe, drawing and losing the other two games.

Kawempe will rely on the 2022/23 FUFA Women Super League MVP and top scorer Shakirah Nyinagahirwa for goals.


Her teammate Hadijah Nandago who has scored in every game against Martyrs at their home in the last two years will pose another threat.


On the other hand, the Kiddawalimes have faith in their deadly front three of Catherine Nagadya, Brenda Munyana, and Latifah Nakasi.

The trio had the most goal involvement (40) in the just concluded FUFA Women’s Super League and they are expected to light up the home fans.

According to Martyrs Assistant Coach, John Ssaka Oscar, the team is optimistic that they’re going to win the first leg.

“Kawempe is a very strong team with good players and a technical team but we have to use the home advantage.”

The gaffer also highlighted his game plan ahead of tough tasks saying. “We have been working on defensive organization so that we don’t concede at home.”

Martyrs will only miss Prossy Nakandi due to injury while the visitors will also play without the injured Docus Kisakye.

The winner between Martyrs and Kawempe will face the victor between Asubo Gafford and She Maroons in the final, to be played in Kumi district.
