Once again, City Stars head coach Nicholas Muyoti will be coming up against Bidco’s Anthony Akhulia for the fifth time in the top league. For Akhulia, it will be his eighth premier league game against City Stars.

Heading to the match, both sides will parade draws from their previous round of games. While City Stars shows up with a 0-0 draw against Kariobangi Sharks, Bidco United will show up with a 1-1 draw against Sofapaka.

Tablewise, Simba wa Nairobi sits sixth on the log with 38 points, seven better than tenth-placed Bidco United.
