On Friday evening in group C, it will be a judgement day for all four teams as they seek for the top two finishes in order to secure a quarterfinal slot.

Pitch Pirates hold the advantage in the group as they currently sit top with six points. In second, it’s Kisenyi FC with three points – same points with Mengo City who are third.

God’s Glory-Katale sit bottom of the log with no point in their opening two games, but surprisingly still have a slim chance to progress to the last eight.

On Friday, Pitch Pirates takes on Mengo while Kisenyi will battle God’s Glory-Katale.

With all four teams still in contention, there is still plenty to be decided, which includes several scenarios that could involve tiebreakers coming into play to decide the two teams that make it to the quarters.

If Mengo City beats Pitch Pirates, they will move to six points- level with their Friday’s opponents.

Kisenyi could also move to six points if they defeat God’s Glory-Katale early on in the day.

That means all three teams will be level on six points after their three games, and will need a couple of tie breaker to separate them.

Another scenario that need a tie breaker might happen if both Mengo and Kisenyi lose to Pitch Pirates and God’s Glory-Katale respectively. This would mean Kisenyi, Mengo and Glory-Katale all finish the group games tied on three points.
