Bottom meets Top as Mathare host Tusker at Ruaraka

The two teams at contrasting ends on the BetKing Premier League (BPL) log will go toe to toe on Tuesday at the Ruaraka grounds to usher in round 27.

Bottom placed Mathare United will play host to Tusker FC, the team sitting at the top of the standings, with three vital. points at stake for two opposite reasons.

With eight matches remaining to the conclusion of the 20/21 season both teams need not to drop points if they are to achieve their targets this campaign.

Threat

By all means Mathare need to retain their topflight status which has been under threat all season and a win can have them move to within a point of safety.

Tusker on the other hand are on course to tying AFC Leopards (12) as the two teams with the second most league titles in the country.

Unlike Mathare, The Brewers have breathing space on their side as they have a six-point cushion on their closest challengers and a win can pull them even further considering 2nd placed KCB FC don’t play until Wednesday.

Namanda

Tusker won the first-leg match-up played in January by a solitary goal scored by Luke Namanda with the win part of a seven game winning run that almost solidified top spot for them early in the season.

Tusker come into this game off the back of a monumental 2-0 win over 3rd placed AFC Leopards while Mathare suffered yet another defeat at the hands of Bidco United.

The match is set for a 3pm kickoff.
