It will be the battle of fierce rivals and the outcome might have an impact back home in the top tier. New AFC Leopards coach Dorian Marin is not worried of facing the fifteen times Kenyan champions with optimism. "Gor Mahia is beatable; yes they are coming into the match as favourites but remember football is played on the pitch.
"Gor Mahia is nothing to me and that is what I have told my players, what happened when they met in the league has nothing to do with this match. Yes, it will be a very tough match but as I had said earlier we will be attacking from the first to the final whistle."
AFC Leopards lost 3-0 when the two sides faced each other in the Kenyan Premier League.
