Ian Otieno has been named in goal for AFC Leopards ahead of Gabriel Andika in the semi-final match against Yanga.

The youngster has been warming the bench since last month's 3-0 loss to bitter rivals Gor Mahia. Whyvonne Isuza will start from the bench with Ramadhan Yakubu getting a starting berth as well as Vincent Oburu. Allan Kateregga will also be lining up against the Tanzanian champions.

Yanga is the only Tanzanian side remaining in the contest and will be hoping to see off another Kenya side after dumping Tusker on post match penalties the last time. In the contest for a place in the final coach Juma Mwambusi has named former Taifa Stars skipper Nadir Haroub to lead the team out for the second straight match.

Deogratius Munishi will man the posts for the Tanzanian champions with Juma Abdul Jaffar, Nassoro Mohamed, and Andrew Chikupe completing the back four led by skipper Haroub.

AFC Leopards XI: Ian Otieno, Denis Sikhayi, Marcus Abwao, Joshua Mawira, Salim Abdalla, Ramadhan Yakub, Bernard Mang'oli, Duncan Otieno, Gilbert Fiamenyo, Allan Kateregga and Vincent Oburu.
