On Sunday 16 January 2022, in Ruaraka, champions Tusker FC will face-off with Nairobi City Stars in the premier league for the 27th time since the year 2003.

Broken down, it will be the 14th time that Tusker will be the host to Simba wa Nairobi. 

From the previous 13 games away to Tusker, City Stars has managed four wins, three draws, and lost the other six.

It will be the sixth time that City Stars will be hosted at Ruaraka by Tusker after visits in 2004, 2009, 2010, 2014, and 2021.

The 2004 and 2010 games ended in 1-0 wins in favor of Tusker, while the 2009 and 2014 games ended 1-1.

City Stars’ only triumph in Ruaraka was in the last game between the two, played in late July 2021. Ezekiel Odera scored to deliver a 1-0 win in that game.

Coach John Amboko masterminded that win last year by seeing off his former coach Robert Matano.

But on Sunday, Amboko will deputize head coach Nicholas Muyoti as City Stars has another go at Tusker in their backyard.

Into the game, Tusker carries a 1-0 loss to Posta Rangers to the duel as City Stars goes in with a 2-1 win over FC Talanta from their last assignment.
