Proline coach Shafik Bisaso says the classification tie of the Pilsner Super 8 against URA on Wednesday at Namboole will be a good buildup for them as they prepare to take on Malawi’s Masters Security Services in the return leg of the CAF Confederation Cup next.
 
Bisaso told New Vision during a press conference in Kampala that although they won the first game 3-0 over the weekend, the job is not yet done so the tie against URA will help them to rectify their mistakes.
 
“It’s a pre-season tournament that will help us prepare for the new season and the continental return leg match. The victory we picked up over the weekend is history since this is now different competition,” stated Bisaso.
 
Both Proline and URA who were eliminated in the first round of the Super 8 and are battling for positions.
 
“We come into tomorrow’s game as underdogs since Proline managed to put up a good performance over the weekend on the continent, so they're better prepared than us. For our case, some of our players won’t be around for the game but that doesn’t mean it will be an easy game for Proline. We shall challenge them," noted URA tactician Sam Ssimbwa. 
 
The Super 8 is a competition that comprises of top six teams in the topflight and two teams that were promoted directly to the top-tier from FUFA Big League. These include; KCCA, Vipers, URA, Tooro United Mbarara City, Onduparaka,  Proline, and Wakiso Giants.
 
This year’s prize money has been doubled from sh30m last season to sh68m with the winning team receiving sh20m, runners up sh12m, third-placed team sh10m and fourth sh8m. The fifth to eight teams will receive sh5m, sh4m, and sh3m respectively.
 
KCCA beat Onduparaka 2-0 to win last edition competition and the two sides will face off again in this year’s second semifinal on Friday. Vipers beat Mbarara City 5-3 in penalties after 1-1 to make it to the final.
