Match Preview


Troubled AFC Leopards are aware that a win is vital at this time to revive the otherwise dead support from the fans. It will not be easy though against Batoto ba Mungu, who are aiming to bounce back from their defeat against Bandari. Ingwe has won eight, lost nine and drawn three of their last twenty meetings against Sofapaka.

Last season, the two teams shared the spoils in both legs; Leopards lost 2-1 in the reverse fixture before recording a 1-0 win in the second leg.
