Pepsi University league
MUBS 0-0 UCU
Two-time champions Makerere University Business School (MUBS) failed to register their first win at Uganda Christian University (UCU) after the two sides played out to a barren stalemate on Tuesday at Nakawa in group D. The result means that UCU are unbeaten against MUBS in the Pepsi University football league. Before the Tuesday fixture, the sides had last met in 2017 with UCU winning both home and away. Prior to that, the two teams drew 1-1 in 2014. MUBS who won back to back league titles in 2014 and 2015 have struggled in recent years in the Pepsi-sponsored tournament –failing to make it past the group stage last season. MUBS coach Charles Ayiekoh however remains optimistic that his side are bidding for the title this season.
