The upcoming tie will be the third overall between the two in Kenya’s apex league, but the first ever in Ruaraka.
Simba wa Nairobi first hosted FC Talanta during the 2021-22 season-ender at Kasarani Annex.
Set-piece goals by Ezekiel Odera (penalty) and Peter Opiyo (freekick) on either half, that sandwiched FC Talanta’s two quickfire goals by Michael Jairo and a penalty by Francis Kahiro at the start of the second half, settled the 34th and final game of that season. It ended 2-2.
Once again, head coach Nicholas Muyoti will be coming up against his counterpart Ken Kenyatta.
While City Stars carries a loss against Tusker from their last encounter, FC Talanta comes to the duel with a 2-2 draw against Kariobangi Sharks in their season-opener. They sat out match day two.
