Spoils have never been shared when Nairobi City Stars hosts AFC Leopards in the Premier League.

That is the standout as Simba wa Nairobi gears to face Ingwe in their twelfth game of the 2021/22 FKF Premier League game in Nyayo Stadium on Wednesday 5 January 2022 starting at 3 pm.

It will be the eleventh time that Nairobi City Stars hosts Leopards in the topflight since the year 2006.

From the previous ten home games, City Stars has seen off Leopards six times and lost the other four in the process outscoring their opponents 12 goals to eight.

The two teams will be returning to duel at Nyayo for just the fifth time, but for the first time since April 2016 where City Stars came out 1-0 winners thanks to an Oscar Mbugua goal in the 65th minute.

The games held at Nyayo, as hosted by City Stars are shared with each winning twice and losing as many.

Heading to the upcoming game, City Stars carries a 2-0 win from the same venue over Gor Mahia, as Leopards comes to the game having picked a vital point in a 2-2 draw with high flying Kakamega Homeboyz.

At the touchline, Leopards will have the instructions of Patrick Aussems. He will be coming up against a third Nairobi City Stars head coach in under a year. This time it’s Nicholas Muyoti, a former AFC Leopards captain and assistant coach.

Aussems was up against Bosnian Sanjin Alagic and City Stars legend John Amboko during the first and second legs of last season.
