Gomba beat Buddu 3-1 to clinch their fifth Masaza Cup title during the 2020 edition while Buddu earned their first championship crown against the same opponents in 2016.

Gomba will look up Kenneth Kimera fresh from scoring his first goal in the Uganda Premier league with Wakiso Giants for inspiration.

Him and his striking partner Allan Oyirwoth were instrumental against Ssingo with each scoring two goals over the two legs.

Buddu will look up on form attacker Pius Ssebulime and Meddie Kasule.
