Match Preview

AFC Leopards' 1-0 result against Sony Sugar was the team's first win after six games. They are facing the brewers, who have beaten them thirteen times in their last twenty league meetings, drawn five times and lost twice meaning it will not be an easy outing.

However, this Tusker team has not collected even a point from their previous three games. They lost matches against Kakamega Homeboyz, Gor Mahia and Nzoia Sugar by an identical 1-0 score line.

Ingwe's last win against Tusker came in August, 2017 when they won by a solitary goal. Last season, they conceded eight goals in both legs, and scored just two in return.

Looking at the past ten years, the brewers have scored thirty five goals against Ingwe, and conceded just 14. The hosts are currently placed fifth on the log with twenty five points after winning seven games, drawn four and lost as many.

Ingwe are 16th on the log after managing to win only three matches.
