    Kigali, Rwanda – (African Boulevard News) – It was a heartbreaking moment for Espoir FC as they got relegated from the Rwandan Premier League after playing in the top division for 12 consecutive years. The team confirmed their demotion after losing 0-2 to AS Kigali at Umuganda Stadium last weekend.

    Espoir’s relegation became inevitable after a disastrous season, where they only won three games out of 25 matches, and they have been occupying the bottom of the table for several weeks.

    Meanwhile, Rayon Sports, one of the biggest football clubs in Rwanda, climbed to second place in the standing after a resounding 3-0 victory over Bugesera FC. The Blues have 46 points and are poised to qualify for the 2021-2022 CAF Champions League with only three points behind APR FC, the current league leaders, with four matches remaining.

    Rayon’s head coach, Jean Baptiste Kayiranga, was thrilled with his team’s performance and praised their commitment, determination, and resilience throughout the season. He said, “I am proud of my players’ effort and mentality. They have been working very hard to get to this point, and we are now in a good position to challenge APR for the title. We will keep fighting until the end.”

    The result marked a significant turning point for Rayon, who have been struggling to find the right balance and consistency in their game. However, their recent form has been impressive, winning three out of their last four matches and scoring ten goals in the process.

    On the other hand, Espoir’s woes worsened after they suffered their twenty-first loss of the season. The team’s head coach, Innocent Seninga, admitted that they have not been performing well throughout the season and that their relegation was a bitter pill to swallow. He said, “It’s a sad day for us, the fans, and the club as a whole. We have not been good enough this season, and we need to regroup, rebuild, and come back stronger next season.”

    In conclusion, Espoir’s relegation and Rayon’s ascent have set the stage for an exciting finish to the Rwandan Premier League season. With only a few matches remaining, there is still everything to play for, and fans can expect nail-biting games as the top teams jostle for positions in the standing.
