Mashemeji Derby Highlights Ahead of Tomorrow's Clash

AFC Leopards will battle it out with their arch-rivals Gor Mahia tomorrow, 20th October as from 3 PM at the Kasarani International Stadium in what can be termed as Mashujaa day finest.

AFC Leopards are in position 5 with 4 points while Gor Mahia who missed their second match of the FKF Premier League due to their CAF Confederation Cup fixture against Al Ahly Merowe of Sudan hold position 7 with 3 points.

The last Mashemeji Derby was not played as both sides boycotted due to failure by the federation to have the club's grants remitted.

Mashemeji Derby has been an entertaining and thrilling fixture in FKF Premier League but with the prevailing Covid-19 condition, the derby has lacked its 'importance'.

The last time AFC Leopards defeated their rivals Gor Mahia was on 6th March, 2016 when the former got a late goal - 80th minute - courtesy of Ivorian Lamine Dialo.

AFC Leopards granted Gor Mahia the opportunity to represent the country in the CAF Confederation Cup competition after losing the Betway FKF Super Cup on penalties.
