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.

Squads & Team News
Robinson Kamura's absence is due to injury, but youngster Mike Kibwage is representing him well. Whyvonne Isuza, who has eleven goals to his name, starts his two match ban. His absence is a blow to coach Rodolfo Zapata, who could have wanted him in the team.
Probable AFC Leopards XI: Owade, Shikhayi, Mburu, Kibwage, Shittu, Otieno, Seda, Nabwire, Odera, Marita and Odeny.
Nakumatt has no injury worries, by the time they had completed their Saturday training session, every player was passed ready for the match.
Probable Nakumatt XI: Indeche, Omondi, Ambulwa, Mukhekhe, Njoroge, Kisiavuki, Adwar, Thairu, Wanyonyi, Waithira and Juma.
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.
