KPL odds and best bets for Nakumatt FC vs. Mathare United


KPLWednesday, April 4 – 2:00p.m Local time – Ruaraka Stadium, Nairobi, Kenya.

Mathare United retained second place on the Kenyan Premier League standings after the AFC Leopards ignominiously slumped to a 4-2 defeat at the hands of Tusker FC on Monday afternoon.

Tusker aren’t exactly minnows, they’ve won the KPL crown an impressive eleven times, but the Brewers were heading into the match second best in every front, having registered a poor start to the 2018 campaign.

Their victory was aided by the sending off of goalkeeper Gabriel Andika in the first half, whose misdemeanour on Timothy Otieno saw him red carded — a move that greatly handicapped his side which was forced to play with 10 men for nearly an hour.

As such, Ingwe, who fell to their first defeat in four games under the stewardship of caretaker coach Dennis Kitambi, remain third on the table with 16 points from eight matches; a solitary point behind second placed Mathare and three adrift of leaders Gor Mahia.

The Leopard’s defeat makes Mathare’s victory over the weekend all the more delightful, as the Slum Boys secured maximum points against Chemelil Sugar at the Kenyatta Stadium, courtesy of a solitary goal by Cliff Nyakeya.

Although the goal was Nyakeya’s fourth thus far into the campaign, the in-form midfielder couldn’t add onto the tally as Francis Kimanzi’s side hanged on for dear life to register a feeble yet precious 1-0 victory over an excessively irrepressible Chemelil Sugar side.

Mathare take their improbable title campaign to the Ruaraka Stadium for a midweek Premier League clash against embattled Nakumatt FC. The unendurable financial constrains off the pitch is seemingly, if not assuredly, having direct implications on results on the turf, as Nakumatt continue to struggle in the League.

Ndovu FC started registering wanting outcomes last season after their main sponsors Nakumatt Holdings — arguably Kenyan’s most vibrant chain supermarket until its closure in October 2017 — started experiencing unbearable financial hardships.

Whereas Mathare have churned out five wins out of a possible eight, Nakumatt have already lost four times this season and drawn thrice, with their only win thus far registered away to Nzoia Sugar in Match Day 3.
Nyakeya will certainly relish lining up against Nakumatt with the hope of extending his goal scoring run, having already surpassed last season’s tally of three goals scored.

Francis Kimanzi has a relatively clean bill of health, although Robert Mboya could once again slot in between the sticks for Wycliffe Kasaya who is out with an injury.
