Nairobi City Stars will host record Kenyan league champions Gor Mahia in Kasarani (main) on Sunday 29 May 2022 during a 32nd round FKF Premier League game starting 3 pm.
Prior to the Sunday game, Simba wa Nairobi has played Gor Mahia 25 times before in the top-flight league.
In terms of home games, it will be the 13th time that City Stars will be home to Gor Mahia, and for the 13th time will be looking for an on-the-field win.
Just once, in June 2006 did City Stars, then known as World Hope, ‘beat’ Gor who never turned up for a 36th round tie in Nyayo Stadium in the 2005-6 season.
Then the hosts, then known as World Hope, were handed a walkover by a no-show Gor Mahia. Six draws, and five losses for City Stars are the other results. 16 years later, Simba wa Nairobi is chasing a home win against their foes.
In the 12 home games, Gor Mahia has outscored Simba wa Nairobi 19 goals to nine.
Heading to the game, City Stars is reeling from a 3-2 loss to KCB as Gor carries a 1-1 draw against title-chasing Kakamega Homeboyz.
Into the game, City Stars sits fourth with 50-points, two ahead of fifth-placed Gor Mahia.
During the first leg, City Stars took out Gor Mahia 2-0 at Nyayo Stadium – the first win in ten years – and the coach that masterminded the win, Nicholas Muyoti, will be back again for a double. He will be up against Andreas Spier who took over from first leg coach Sammy Omolo.
