30 points separates Nairobi City Stars and Kibera Black Stars ahead of a National Super League (NSL) Match 19 clash on Saturday 14 December 2019 at Camp Toyoyo starting 3pm EAT.
Unbeaten City Stars tops the log with 43 points and Kibera Black Stars is 16th with 13 points.
The upcoming game will be the fourth City Stars will be hosting Kibera Black Stars and as has always been the case, the Saturday game is expected to be fiercely fought.
The previous games have not lacked goals, and as is conspicuous in six previous NSL results, there are no clean sheets when City Stars – Black Stars face off.
City Stars beat visiting Black Stars in the first two encounters they hosted but in the last game played in March 2019, Black Stars turned the tables and embarrassed home team Simba Wa Nairobi 3-1. That happens to be the only game between the two that has been won by more than a one goal margin.
It’s that kind of result that makes the Saturday game an unpredictable one and with a take-home in place – a trophy and Kshs 20,000 for the winning team – fireworks is expected at Camp Toyoyo at the weekend.
Heading to the game, City Stars is on a three-game winning streak and overall 18-game unbeaten stretch this season, and 22 considering the last four games of last season.
On their part, Black Stars come to the game on the high of a 3-1 win over FC Talanta – their first NSL triumph in close to three months that adds on to the only previous one; a 2-0 win over St. Joseph in mid-September 2019. The latest win came on the back of an unthinkable barren draw away to the formidable Migori Youth in Awendo.
Which way will the upcoming Kawangware – Kibera derby go? Only the Camp Toyoyo turf will tell the tale when the two face off on Saturday evening.
