The Premier League fixture at Kenyatta Stadium on Tuesday sees home side Tusker prepare for the visit of Nzoia Sugar.
Scroll down to see all of the predictions, poll and statistics for Tusker v Nzoia Sugar (including the best match odds).
Tusker will be looking for a repeat result of the 1-4 Premier League success against Posta Rangers.
Tusker haven’t been able to stop scoring goals, netting every time they’ve gone out to play in their last 6 games.
They’ve hit an aggregate of 13 during that period while also conceding a total of 4.
Looking at their past form shows that Tusker:
- haven't been beaten in the league by Nzoia Sugar in their last 2 matches.
- are unbeaten in their previous 21 league matches at home. What a fantastic run.
Nzoia Sugar will go into the match after a 2-1 Premier League win with the downing of KCB in their previous match.
Nzoia Sugar have been dangerous up front of late, scoring 8 times in their previous 6 matches. While their manager Bernard Mwalala will no doubt take that as a positive sign, Nzoia Sugar can also improve defensively after being scored against in 6 of those same clashes. That pattern won’t necessarily follow through into this match, however.
Taking a look at their past results, Nzoia Sugar:
- have left without a victory over Tusker when having played them away from home in the previous 3 league games.
- haven’t won away from home in the past 15 league matches. What a horror away run it has been.
Head to head
Checking on their prior head to head meetings dating back to 21/10/2017 tells us that Tusker have won 4 of these games and Nzoia Sugar 1, with the number of draws standing at 1.
In all, 15 goals were scored between the two sides during those clashes, with 9 of them from Tusker and 6 created by Nzoia Sugar. The average number of goals per game works out to 2.5.
Team News: Nzoia Sugar
Thanks to a fully healthy squad to pick from, Nzoia Sugar boss Bernard Mwalala doesn’t have any fitness concerns to speak of before this match.
When taking all factors into account, Tusker will probably get a couple of goals in this one when they line up against Nzoia Sugar, who might well find it a difficult task scoring.
We’re therefore expecting to see a fairly comfortable 2-0 winning score for Tusker come full-time.
