Gor Mahia will face AS Otoho d’Oyo in their Caf Confederation Cup first-leg play-off fixture at Stade Alphonse Massamba-Debat on Sunday.

K’Ogalo started their journey in the competition after receiving a bye in the preliminary round before they were drawn to face Al Ahly Merowe of Sudan in the second-round contest.

The former FKF Premier League champions advanced to the play-off stage after eliminating Merowe 3-1 on aggregate, winning the first round meeting 3-1 at New Suez Stadium but the Sudanese outfit could not honour the return leg allowing Caf to award Gor the berth.

Meanwhile, the Congolese side dropped to the second-tier competition after losing 4-2 on aggregate against Petro de Luanda of Angola in the Champions League playoffs.

Otoho secured a 2-2 draw in the first round meeting at Stade Alphonse Massamba-Debat but the Angolan side returned home to win the return leg 2-0 at Estadio 11 de Novembro.

Gor Mahia travelled with a squad of 15 players to Brazzaville and coach Mark Harrison has revealed the team’s readiness to get a positive result.

“Defensively we are in good shape, in central midfield we tend to have good control in the games we have played,” Harrison told GOAL before the team hit the runway en route to Congo.

“We just don’t penetrate enough at times and when we do, we don't finish the created chances.”

However, Harrison is confident of a positive result: “We are going for a win in Congo, we want to make our work easier when we face them again in Nairobi. “We know it will be a tough game but my players are ready to get a positive result.”

K’Ogalo will bank on the experienced captain Harun Shakava, and Burundi striker Jules Ulimwengu to get a positive result ahead of their return leg in Nairobi on December 5.

Probable XI for Gor Mahia: Mathews, Otieno, Shakava, Odhiambo, Oluoch, Wendo, Ayugi, Onyango, Omalla, Nkata, Ulimwengu.

Match Preview

This will be the first meeting between the two sides in competitive matches but Gor Mahia has previously made two trips to Congo for continental competitions.

The Kenyan giants’ first trip was in 1989 when they were defending the Africa Cup Winners Cup and they were drawn to face Inter Club in the quarter-finals of the competition.

K’Ogalo managed a 2-1 win in the first leg meeting in Nairobi but suffered a 4-1 defeat in the return leg away in Congo while the team’s second trip to Congo was in 2015 against AC Leopards in the first preliminary round of the Champions League.

Starting at home, Gor Mahia suffered a 1-0 defeat and travelling to Congo they also lost 1-0 at the Denis Sassou Nguesso Stadium to exit the stage on a 2-0 aggregate defeat.
