Juba Local Football Association Cup Champions, Rabita FC have been drawn against Aweil United on Wednesday, 11th March, 2020 in the next round of the Cup tournament.

Five teams qualified from five different groups and in the other encounter, Al-Qadesia (Renk) will face Yambio Champions, Nile City on the 17th March.

Blue Stars of Tonj will have to wait for the two winners from the above fixtures before engaging in the next stage.

Debutant Rabita FC, under Coach Ramzi Sebit Lumeri have been tipped favorites by bookmakers but on 16th March, face a very tricky Aweil United side that eliminated Ramzi’s former bosses, Salam Wau.

Aweil United are appearing for the first time in the national Cup competition and have been local league Champions in the last two seasons.

Coach Ramzi, has won the national title on four occasions with three different teams, Malakia FC (Juba) 2015, Salam Wau 2016 & 2017, then with Amarat United in 2018.

The former El-Merriekh Juba tactician, has got so much in store when it comes to Cup tournament both at local and national stage.

Al-Qadesia FC was third best in last season’s champion’s league, won by Atlabara FC of Juba and Al-Hilal Wau coming second.

The Renk side will have to prove their capability against debutant Nile City of Yambio on Tuesday in the second match.

The four drawn teams, with due respect to Blue Stars of Tonj, look the favorites to make to the finals of this year’s Cup tournament, if the winners of Rabita-Aweil United are not paired against the winners of Qadesia-Nile City in the next round.
