Head-to-head: Nairobi City Stars (H) vs Kariobangi Sharks (A): 2023-24 FKF Premier League season

City Stars vs Sharks in an FKF Premier League tie on 25 Apr 2023 in KAsarani Annex. City Stars won 2-1

For the fourth time in Kenya’s top flight since the year 2019, Nairobi City Stars will host Kariobangi Sharks during a matchday 12, 2023-24 FKF Premier League tie set for Kasarani Annex on Saturday 25 Nov 2023, starting at 3.15 p.m.

Simba wa Nairobi last hosted Sharks on 21 Dec 2022, in Ruaraka, during a match six tie last season. It ended 1-1 after Paul Okoth’s second-half header off a corner for Sharks canceled out Vincent Otieno’s first-half goal.

That draw ended a streak of two straight losses for City Stars as hosts against Sharks. From the previous three encounters, the Sharkmen have outscored Simba wa Nairobi by five goals to three.

Form-wise, both teams head to the game on the back of losses. While City Stars went down 3-1 away to Tusker in their last encounter, Sharks were taken down 2-0 by traveling Bandari.

In the upcoming encounter, City Stars head coach Nicholas Muyoti will be up against his counterpart William Kanu Muluya for a third home game.

While Muyoti will be in search of his first home win over the Sharks, Muluya will be hunting for a third one in four games.

Table-wise, City Stars is placed 13th in the 18-team log with 12 points, a position, and a point below Sharks.

Who wins the battle of the youngest squads in the league?
