(Villa win 2-0 on aggregate)


Ugandan side SC Villa have advanced to the first round of the CAF Confederation Cup after seeing off Sudan outfit Khartoum Watani over two legs.

Hosts Villa came into the return fixture at Nakivubo Stadium with a one-goal advantage from the first leg in Khartoum.

And they stretched that lead in front of a home backing thanks to a fierce header by Godfrey Lwesibawa from an Isaac Muleme well-weighted cross in the 25th minute.

Play had to be briefly interrupted 15 minutes into the opening half due to an afternoon downpour.

But five minutes earlier, the visitors squandered an early chance to go in front when captain Abdalgabar Nagim had his penalty saved by home keeper Nicholas Sebwato.

The Sudanese side failed to recover and with the hosts hanging on, it the contest was all but over.

The results means Villa have progressed to the next stage courtesy of a 2-0 aggregate score, and will play JKU of Zanzibar next.
