Vipers SC skipper Halid Lwaliwa claims that they are ready to take the challenge as they face off with Al-Hilal in Caf Champions League on Saturday.
The Venoms will be making a return to continental football after winning the StarTimes Uganda Premier League last season.
The Venoms have been drawn to confront the Sudanese in the preliminary stage of the competition.
Vipers will host the Sudanese champions at St Mary’s Stadium, Kitende for the first leg before a return encounter in Omdurman.
The second leg, set for December 4-6, will be Vipers’ first visit to Sudan since 2018 when they knocked out Hilal’s rivals El-Merriekh.
“We are quite ready for whatever challenge comes our way. The morale in camp is high,” Halid Lwaliwa was quoted by Vipers Facebook page.
“We have prepared very well with the coaches and everyone is ready and confident for the game,” he added.
The winner between Vipers and Al-Hilal will face the winner between Asante Kotoko of Ghana or Mauritanian champions Noudhibou FC in the qualifying stage.
