The tie was initially scheduled for Sunday but was pushed back by a day due to a lack of venue.
Wazito last hosted Simba wa Nairobi in January 2021 at Utalii and went on to win it 2-1. They completed a season double with a 1-0 win later in July in Ruaraka.
During the first leg tie this season, City Stars hit Wazito 3-1 in Thika in October 2021 and will be hoping for similar tidings in the Monday game.
Back in October, Francis Kimanzi was in charge at Wazito but his position has since been taken up by Fred Ambani who will be coming up against Nicholas Muyoti who masterminded the last City Stars win.
Heading to the game, both sides will parade draws from their previous games. Wazito carries a 1-1 draw from log leaders Kakamega Homeboyz as City Stas comes to the party with a 0-0 draw against Police.
Table-wise, City Stars is fifth, with 46 points, after results of other premier league games played by Sunday as Wazito comes in at 17th spot with 22 points. Both have played 22 games.
