SportPesa Super Cup

SportPesa Super CupSunday, June 10 – 3:15p.m Local time Afraha Stadium, Nakuru County, Kenya

The match between Simba S.C and Gor Mahia is tantalizingly poised to be the most mouth-watering clash of the 2018 edition of the SportPesa Super Cup tournament.

The two East African giants will lock horns on Sunday afternoon at the Afraha Stadium, with everything to play for in the final.

Current holders Gor Mahia have made significant incursion in their title defense, putting up fine performances that has seen them score five without conceding a single goal in the tournament. K’Ogalo made a gimmick out of the Zanzibar League champions Jeshi la Kujenga Uchumi by thumping them 3-0 in their opening match, before subjecting Tanzanian side Singida to the heartbreak of a 2-0 defeat in the semi-final.

Although head coach Dylan Kerr gave fringe players a running in their first match, the British manager left nothing to chance with his team selection in the last four, as he fielded his strongest possible side.

The dynamic attacking duo of Meddie Kagere and Jacques Tuyisenge returned back to the starting eleven with a bang, causing several problems to the Singida defense with an infusion of both speed and agility.

Kagere- Gor’s leading goal scorer this season- nonetheless had to wait until the 36th minute to find his breakthrough, as he netted the opener having connected with Francis Kahata’s cross with a near post header.

Singida head coach Hemeddi Morocco however left nothing to chance after the interval, as he immediately brought on Lubinda Mundia in place of John Tibar, as the Tanzanians desperately chased for an equalizer.

Although K’Ogalo only led by a single goal, they never looked like relinquishing their lead as they kept their title defense alive with a solid defensive display. With Singida still fancying their chances, the Kenyan Premier League champions eventually put the result beyond doubt after Kagere scored his second of the day one minute to stoppage time.

Whereas Gor Mahia were easy on the eye in the last four, Simba drew yet another blank against Kakamega Homeboyz with their second consecutive 0-0 draw in the competition; their first coming in the opening match against Kariobangi Sharks.

Kakamega Homeboyz may have triumphed with an emphatic 3-1 victory over Yanga in the quarterfinals, but the KPL side failed to break down the Tanzanian Premier League champions who exhibited requisite caution in the encounter; forcing the match to meander aimlessly into post match penalties.

Taking penalties seems to be Simba’s forte, as they gleefully converted their spot kicks to book their place in the final with a 5-4 win over Homeboyz.

Simba S.C vs. Gor Mahia Match prediction

Other than the fact that Everton scouts will be on the lookout for burgeoning talent in the final, the stakes have never been higher as the eventual winner of the competition will pocket 30,000 USD, on top of travelling to Goodison Park for a promotional match with English Premier League side Everton.

Simba’s Super Cup campaign may have been blighted by barren draws, but the TPL champions will have to size up the competition and come up with the goods against a Gor Mahia side that will without question score.

Meddie Kagere has set the tournament alight having found the back of the net thrice in the last two games; with the Rwandan international out to inspire Gor Mahia to a successful SportPesa Super Cup defense.
