It was yet another interesting start to the Azam Uganda Premier League 2016/17 season with every club looking strong and well equipped for the eight month marathon.

Only eight goals were scored in all the eight games played translating to a goal a match. However, buy five games produced barren draws exposing the league’s striking deficiency.

Last season runners up, viagra 100mg Vipers SC registered a one all draw at home against Bright Stars in Nakivubo.

The defending champions KCCA FC and Express are the only clubs that picked maximum points both recording twin 2-1 victories.

KCCA FC continued their fine opening form that has seen them win each of their opening fixtures since August 2012. Joseph Ochaya opened the game and Geoffrey Sserunkuma sealed the win in second half.

Ochaya’s 22nd minute strike meant he scored the first goal of the season for the second year running but however Karim Ndugwa’s fifth minute strike for Lweza against Express becomes the fastest goal so far.

Express have now scored in each of their five meetings with Lweza in the Wankulukuku derby.

Debutants Kirinya Jinja SS, Onduparaka FC and Proline exhibited quality football despite their blunt attacking force or do we say their opponents were generally cautious. The trio had similar barren games against URA, Soana and BUL respectively.

Bul FC opening jinx sticks on even after coach Anyau promising to put a halt to the infamous record.

Same results were registered in Kavumba and Bombo where Police hosted SC Villa and Saints versus Sadolin respectively.

The games return on Tuesday 23rd with all the sixteen in action.
