Bunyaruguru eliminated 2nd Division side Kaaro Karungi 2-0 in the Round of 64 and will be hoping to make another upset.

“We are prepared for such a big Stanbic Uganda Cup game which is historical in this district I think,” Bunyaruguru head coach Kamurinde Sam said.

While Bunyaruguru dumped out Kaaro Karungi in the Round of 64, UPDF saw off Western Region side Bushenyi Veteran 4-1 in the shootouts following a goalless draw in normal time.
