Kenyan Premier League (KPL) side Kariobangi Sharks will face Yanga SC in a friendly match on August 4 at National Stadium in Dar es Salaam.

The two teams will meet as they prepare for the onset of their respective domestic leagues with the Kenyan side expected to land in Tanzania for the second time this year.

The first match between them was in the Sportpesa Shield Cup tie in Dar es Salaam where Kariobangi Sharks emerged winners with a 3-2 score after extra-time at the quarter-final stage in January.

"It is official. We will face the Sportpesa Super Cup winners Kariobangi Sharks in a friendly match on August 4," Yanga posted on their Facebook page.

William Muluya is expected to gauge his new signings Patrick Otieno, who received his debut in the Everton match, as well as Daniel Sakari and Peter Kyata in the friendly tie.

Yanga captured Bandari goalkeeper Farouk Shikalo and he could face the KPL side again after helping the Dockers wrestle the Sportpesa Shield Cup trophy from the Sharks early in June.
