Heavy task ahead for Tusker as Gor seize valuable away result

Tusker's failure to take their chances in Nairobi without a doubt makes the return leg in Cairo a daunting task, especially when one considers Kenyan clubs’ inability to perform well in North Africa.

There were mixed results for Kenya’s representatives in the CAF competitions this past weekend.

Reigning FKF Premier League Champions Tusker fell to a 1-0 home defeat to Egypt champions Zamalek in their Champions League second round, first leg clash at the Nyayo National Stadium on Saturday 16 October 2021.

Robert Matano’s charges will certainly rue their missed chances, their timid strike force unable to put the ball in the back of the net against the five time African champions.  They will need to beat Zamalek by two clear goals to advance to the next round.

There were no problems for Gor Mahia though. They even go their travel logistics right and for the first time in ages, there was little fuss about their travel arranges.

Anyway, on to more serious matters, the record Kenyan champions rallied from a goal down to defeat Sudan’s Al Ahly Merowe 3-1 in the Confederation Cup second first leg in Suez City, Egypt on Friday 15 October 2021.

Mark Harrison’s troops have a healthy lead and home ground advantage heading into the return leg in Nairobi. They will need to avoid complacency and defeat as they look to advance further in the competition.
