Return leg on February 27
SC Villa v Khartoum Watani

Ugandan side SC Villa  returned  to the  continental  stage  in style  by  earning  a vital win away  in the CAF Confederation Cup. They defeated Sudan side Khartoum Watani 1-0 at Khartoum Stadium Saturday evening.

Midfielder Taddeo Lwanga scored  the only  goal  to give  the Villa  Park-based side the advantage ahead of the  return leg in two weeks' time.

The Jogoos  had last represented Uganda on the continental stage in 2005 after they lost to Al-Ahly of Egypt in the CAF Champions League on a 6-0 aggregate.

But in 2010, they had qualified to part in the CAF Confederation Cup against Sudan side Khartoum in the preliminary round but later pulled out due to financial constraints.

Villa host Khartoum Watani in the return leg on February 27. If Villa wins the two legs, they will face either JKU (Zanzibar) or Gaborone (Botswana).
