Just like was the case last season, Leopards are guests to City Stars in the first game of the year, and the match comes exactly a year after the two faced off at Nyayo Stadium in 2022.
It will be topflight game 12 since the year 2006 that Nairobi City Stars will be hosting AFC Leopards.
From the previous eleven home games, there is always an outright winner: City Stars winning six times and Leopards the other five. Draws have been non-existent. City Stars has scored their rivals 12 goals to nine.
Once again, coach Nicholas Muyoti will come up against his counterpart Patrick Aussems on the Leopard’s side.
Form-wise, both teams carry a point each to the mid-week game; City Stars a 1-1 draw against Kariobangi Sharks, as Leopards parades a 0-0 draw against Kakamega Homeboyz.
We share the spoils here at Ruaraka Grounds
