Uganda's first time CAF Confederations Cup participants Proline FC played to an important 2 all stalemate away from home with Libya's Al Nasri FC in Alexandria.
In the game played at Burj Al Arab Stadium in Alexandria-Egypt, the Yellow and purple striped side came from behind on two occasions to equalise and the result means the Matia Lule coached side can advance with a draw of not more than two goals in the second leg.
Al Nasr opened the scoring in half time but Proline equalised through Mustafa Mujuzi's beautiful and well taken free kick. Half time ended levelled at 1:1 but the home side still took the lead in the second half from a 12 yards spot when the referee awarded a penalty after Proline's Richard Ajuna handled the ball in the forbidden area.
Proline held on and finally got the equaliser to leave the match tied on 2:2 ahead of the second leg scheduled for next weekend. Proline FC brought on Kiwanuka Hakim for Arnold Sserunjoji with 62 minutes played, while with five minutes to play, Joshua Okiror and Besiga James came on for Kintu Sam and Kizza Hamis respectively.
The return leg is scheduled for 3rd November, 2019 next weekend in Kampala at the Star Times Stadium Lugogo.
