Will Ingwe put on hold Gor’s hopes of bagging the title early?

Two-times consecutive Kenya Premier League winners Gor-Mahia will this weekend face their long-time rivals AFC Leopards in their second leg match that will see the two sides clash at Kasarani stadium.

In their first match that was played at the same venue, the visitors, Gor Mahia went home with the Victory thanks to two goals from Muguna and Kahata with the former scoring after being set for by the latter in the first quarter of the hour and Kahata adding the second and winning goal in the 67th minute.

With only four matches left to be played, the green army needs only two wins to be crowned Champions the third time in a row which is what Ingwe will be looking to block just as they stumbled against Nzoia Sugar in a mid-week clash that saw them lose a goal to their visitors.

Apparently, AFC also lost their midweek match against the banker of KCB in a KPL match which came just weeks after their eight clean win matches run stopped.

The loss for the two sides would mean that they could release all their weapons in search of a win especially Gor Mahia who want to retain the cup for the third -in -row time.

In their recent meetings from 2017 in different cups, Gor Mahia has won five matches out of the ix that the two sides have met in while drawing once with every incidence recording not less than two goals.

Gor Mahia has had a good run this season having won two draws twice and losing two while their opposer over the weekend has only managed to win once, lot three times and managing to draw twice out of their most recent six matches.

This graph is clear how of which side is better-placed to carry the day home but despite the good run by the defending champions who are looking for a win the opponents will not easily let them draw closer to taking it home with them and at their home ground.

A win against Ingwe who are placed 9th with 39 points on the KPL log will see the green army hunt for just a single win for them to be crowned champions. Gor Mahia will keep the trophy for good for a third time if they are going to take it home a fete no other Kenyan team has achieved.
