Head-to-head: Mathare United (H) vs Nairobi City Stars (A): 2021/22 FKF Premier League season

Nicholas Kipkirui in action for Nairobi City Stars against Mathare United on Sat 7 Aug 2021 at Ruaraka in a match-day 31 Premier League tie. Mathare United won it 2-0

For the 14th time in 17 years, Mathare United will host Nairobi City Stars in an FKF Premier League matchday 9 tie on Saturday 11 December 2021 in Ruaraka starting at 3 pm.

The last such match at the same venue left City Stars beaten 2-0 by a vibrant Mathare United side buoyed by relegation fears.

City Stars falls to Mathare United

The upcoming duel will only be the third time that Mathare United will host City Stars in Ruaraka.

The first time was back in August 2007 when, while known as World Hope, City Stars won the game 1-0. Defender Donald Mosoti scored the winner.

In the August 2021 game, Mathare scored on either side through Clifford Alwanga and Daniel Otieno to carry the day.

Both sides carry a loss and draw to the game from their most recent league assignments in the ended week.

A 2-1 loss to Kariobangi Sharks and 0-0 draw to Nzoia Sugar, both at Ruaraka, are Simba wa Nairobi’s latest results while Mathare United carries a 2-0 loss to FC Talanta and 2-2 draw away to Kakamega Homeboyz to the game.

Either side has a change in touchline honchos; John Amboko and Frank Ouna were in charge for City Stars and Mathare in August, respectively, but their positions have since been taken up by two former Kenyan internationals Nicholas Muyoti and Ezekiel Akwana.

Tablewise, City Stars sits up fifth with 14 points as Mathare is 14th with half of Simba wa Nairobi’s tally.

Who wins the Saturday affair in Ruaraka?
