Nakumatt v AFC Leopards: Kick off, TV channel, squad news & preview

Goal Kenya.
After managing to get a draw against an excellent Gor Mahia, Nakumatt will definitely pose a serious threat to AFC Leopards

Lucas Indeche, Harun Nyakha and Eugene Ambulwa made their names while with AFC Leopards but under different coaches, and they are eager to help their Nakumatt side get something on Sunday.

The signing of Joe Waithira has had a positive impact for the shoppers in the attacking department; Ingwe's Whyvone Isuza plays the same role as his opposite number.

It will be like a 'revenge' mission for the twelve-time league champions, who threw a two goal lead in the first leg to draw 2-2 with the shoppers.

Match Preview

This is going to be the fourth league meeting between the two teams; the first one came last year. Ingwe managed to get maximum points in the two legs, scoring a total of four goals and conceding none.

After managing to get a draw against an excellent Gor Mahia side, Nakumatt will pose a great threat to AFC Leopards. The Shoppers will, no doubt, hope to push their opponents to the wall after their performance in the first leg, though the fact remains, they are coming into this match as underdogs. 

AFC Leopards, after back to back wins against Vihiga United and Mathare United, will be hoping to get it right against a relatively weaker opponent and history favors the twelve-time league champions to get maximum points.
