Preview: Bragging Rights at Stake As SC Villa, Express Meet

SC Villa and Express clash in Ugandan football’s most storied rivalry at Wankulukuku.

Once titans, both teams now struggle to reclaim former glory, yet remain revered in the country’s football landscape.

Gone are the days of title showdowns; this season, they vie for position on the league table.

SC Villa sits seventh with 30 points, a mere point ahead of eighth-placed Express, who’ve played two more games.

Express FC enters this match under new leadership, with Baker Mbowa taking the reins after Alex Isabirye’s departure, supported by former captain Mike Mutyaba.

Meanwhile, SC Villa contends with a depleted squad, missing seven players, including three with the Uganda Hippos for the African Games.

Both sides seek redemption after Uganda Cup exits, with Express falling to BUL and Villa to Kitara.

In this derby, victory will hold nothing but bragging rights, especially with league title aspirations dwindling.

SC Villa aims to replicate their first-round success, eyeing a league double over their archrivals, reminiscent of last season.
