KCB FC will host Nairobi City Stars on Wednesday 5 April 2023 starting 3.15 p.m. during a match day 22 FKF Premier League tie.

Annex is the same venue that KCB hosted Simba wa Nairobi in their last two home encounters; in December 2020 and May 2022, posting 1-0 and 3-2 wins, respectively.

Since the year 2005, the bankers have been host to City Stars 12 times and have gone on to win nine of them. The other three games have ended in a draw, and two losses to City Stars.

In spite of the records, City Stars heads to the tie on the back of a 3-0 win over Mathare United, as KCB parades a 0-0 away draw against Kakamega Homeboyz.

As was the case last year, touchline-wise, City Stars coach Nicholas Muyoti will be up against his counterpart Zedekiah Zico Otieno on KCB’s end.

On the log, Simba wa Nairobi is placed 15th with 20 points in the 18-team standing, 18 points adrift fifth-placed KCB.

Who wins this one?
