AFC Leopards will on this Saturday 25th, August 2018 clash with arch-rivals Gor Mahia in a tense Sportpesa Premier League match at the MISC Kasarani.
The match which is the most anticipated by Kenyans fans will be important to either side as Leopards will be looking to cementing the second spot on the KPL log while Gor Mahia are a point a way from being the league champions.
The two clubs first met in May 5th 1968 and this will mark the 85th meeting between the side with AFC Leopards having enjoyed most wins, 28 in league encounters.
Gor Mahia are fresh from registering a 3-0 win over Sofapaka, a match that they rested most of their players. AFC Leopards on the other hand upped their preparation with a midweek friendly at Camp Toyoyo against GSU, a match they triumphed 13-1.
The victory should serve as a morale booster as Rodolfo Zapata charges look to overpower Gor Mahia at the weekend.
Leopards may miss a number of key players with Robinson Kamura, Marvin Nabwire, nursing injuries. Whyvonne Isuza however is expected back after serving a two match suspension.
The match will kick off at 1600hrs. Tickets will go for Ksh200 regular and Ksh500 VIP available on match day.
