Gor Mahia will face a daunting task when they come up with Renaissance Sportive Berkane of Morocco  on Sunday.

The North African side won the Caf Confederation Cup quarter-final first leg clash 2-0 in Nairobi last week, and stand the best chance to advance to the semi-finals of the competition this campaign.

The Kenyan champions will arrive in Morocco without four key players – striker Jacques Tuyisenge, midfielder Ernest Wendo, left back Shafik Batambuze – who are suspended - and first choice keeper Boniface Oluoch, who is nursing a shoulder injury.

Goal headlines the players who will be key for K'Ogalo as they try to overturn the deficit.

  • Gor Mahia keeper Fredrick Odhiambo.

    #1 Peter Odhiambo

    He pulled off two astonishing saves in the first leg to keep the scoreline respectable and will once again be required to be at his best to stop the North African side. Will have to be vocal as well to ensure the team is well organised at the back to avoid committing further mistakes.

  • Allan Wanga of Kakamega Homeboyz v Harun Shakava of Gor Mahia.

    #2 Harun Shakava

    The captain is back when the team needs him the most. He missed the first leg owing to suspension and must make his presence felt at the back now that he will definitely start in the away fixture. He will need to be at his best, as any goal conceded will kill their slim chances of advancing.
  • Kenneth Muguna.

    #3 Kenneth Muguna

    Muguna can run the show on his day and if he does so on Sunday, the visitors could sail through to the semis. The former KF Tirana midfielder has an eye for the pass and can score when given an opportunity. He will also be required to make tackles to win possession in the midfield areas.

  • Francis Kahata of Gor Mahia v Hussein Dey.

    #4 Francis Kahata

    Kahata is arguably the best creative midfielder in the team and his skills have to come into play for them to have a chance. He has to find a way of slipping the strikers in with his defense-splitting passes and hit the back of the net when he has a chance to.
  • Nicholas Kipkirui of Gor Mahia v Hussein Dey.

    #5 Nicholas Kipkirui

    After starting with a bang, the former Zoo Kericho winger has struggled to find the back of the net of late. If Kipkirui can rise up for the occasion against RS Berkane and help Gor Mahia get an unlikely win away from home, his continued selection would have been warranted.
