spoke to sports journalists and fans who have shared their views on which team they believe will carry the day.


Gor Mahia will win it. The club has been consistent, 17 successful wins, they got the zeal and fighting spirit to win..You can see it in their game, they are not taking anything at chance and all this is credited to the Croat coach Zdravko Lugarusic, for instilling winning mentality and belief in his players and ensuring all departments in Kogallo are functioning very well.

I think Gor Mahia will win the league - They have been the best team for the entire second leg of the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) campaign. Even when the form has departed the Kogalo, lady luck has smiled on them.

Gor Mahia will win the title. Currently the club is enjoying top form and having won 18 matches both at home and on the road, they have the strongest mentality over the other two contenders (AFC Leopards and Tusker FC). A convincing 4-0 victory over Muhoroni Youth signified the side's strength, character resiliance and belief. A champions perfomance.

I believe AFC Leopards will win the title. At some point Gor Mahia are set to run out of luck, and that will be this weekend. AFC Leopards are the better placed team to take full advantage.

Obviously Gor will win the title. We will convincingly beat Thika United. Gor wishes all the rival teams convincing wins this weekend, but they wont be enough.

- Tom Bwana - (Football Fan)

I retain the hope that AFC Leopards will win the title. I believe in Jan Koops and the whole squad. Its never over until its over. We have a chance to bag the title if Gor Mahia falter and I have a strong believe that Thika United can hand us a favor by beating Gor Mahia.

- Fredrick Lutta  (AFC Leopards administrator)    


Gor Mahia will clinch the title. They have proven to be consistent despite the intense pressure. They are also top of the league and stand a better chance because they need maximum points to win by one point.
