Futsal: What To Look Out For On Matchday Eighteen

Thursday, March 28
Mengo City Vs Elephants
Parakeets Vs Bajim
Typhoon Vs Dream
Yeak Kabowa Vs Kabowa United
Aidenal Vs Nomad
Crown Vs Park
Equator Vs Yap Stars

All roads this Thursday evening will lead to International Futsal Courts in Mengo as the exciting Futsal Super League returns for Matchday 18.

  1. Yeak Kabowa’s Scoring Machines

Yeak’s Avemah Shafic and Enock Ssebagala are the players behind the club’s success this season. The duo have scored a combined 54 goal tally, more than half of what Yeak has has scored in total – 88.

With 27 goals each, there is an individual battle between the two on who will take home the golden boot.

Ssebagala scored five before Avemah added one as Yeak made light work of Nomad, and the duo will have to come with their scoring boots if Yeak is to edge the area derby.

Note – Suleiman Mutyaba was last season’s top scorer with 48 goals.

  • 2. Can Crown Frustrate Park?

Forget the unbalanced Kabowa derby, Crown Vs Park is the big one to watch.

To put it on the platter, its fourth up against third as Crown play host to second placed Park FC in a 9:00 PM fixture.

Crown will look to close the gap to two points between the sides if they win, and this can come with a bonus of third position if Parakeets fail to beat a tricky Bajim FC.

Abdullah Mohammed (2) and Ismail Kaire were on target as Crown overcame Yap Stars last time out, on the same night when Park had to settle for a draw against a struggling Aidenal team.

Note – Crown have conceded the least number of goals this season – 37, four more than Dream who have the second best defence in the league.

  • 3. Can Equator Win Back To Back?

Equator FC is one of the best managed clubs, their social media platforms speak volumes.

However, with all the quality in the squad including former Express FC defender Omar Hitimana, have failed to live as advertised.

After losing 1-6 to Park FC on Matchday 16, they responded with a 1-4 win over Elephants on Matchday 17.

They face Yap Stars who need to bounce back after losing 3-2 to Crown last time out.

Equator, ninth on the log with 23 points, will need to have consistency if they are to finish way high up on the table.

Note: Equator concede 3.5 goals per match. The poorest beside the bottom three.

  • 4. Mengo Need Positive Response

Mengo lost 1-0 to Bajim, Ronald Ssekigongo proving the difference last Thursday. This was the club’s tenth loss of the campaign, after 17 games!

The side will have to send out a strong message in form a big win, like when they put four goals past Yap Stars on Matchday 16.

This is the opening game of what promises to be a long night, and Mengo are the favourites to win, being eight points better than Elephants who are second from the both with 11 points.

Note – Mengo was KPSG last season, finished second overall.
