Gor Mahia vs KCB will be one to watch when the defending champions host KCB at home in Nairobi.
Defending champions Gor Mahia have not been at their best this season and they will need to step things up when they host KCB at home in Nairobi. This match kicks off at 1PM West Africa Standard Time on Sunday.
Gor Mahia, fondly called K’Ogalo, are one of the two sides yet to taste defeat in the FKF Premier League this season. The giants have been able to garner eight points from their opening four games – winning two of them.
On the other hand, KCB, who had a fine run in the FKF Premier League last season have not particularly been at their best this term. They are just a point behind Gor Mahia and they have only lost once this season.

Gor Mahia vs KCB predictions
This clash is their first meeting this campaign and just the fifth league game of the season for the two teams. Gor Mahia may have won the league last season but KCB was none of the teams they could not beat in two games. Here are our three predictions for the match.
Prediction 1: Gor Mahia win
Gor Mahia have lost twice at home in the past three meetings with KCB and they will need extra work to nick a first win. Overall, Gor Mahia have won 12 games against them but it seems KCB are catching up in terms of the head-to-head battle. Gor Mahia are yet to lose this season, so we think they will be motivated to go for all three points.
Prediction 2: Gor Mahia to score
Gor Mahia are fond of scoring in their home games. The last time they failed to score was in January and we don’t see KCB stopping them from doing that. They scored four goals in their last game at home.
Prediction 3: Under 2.5 Total Goals
Just one of the past six meetings has produced over 2.5 goals. Over the course of their matchups last season, the two fixtures produced just a goal and we believe it is going to be another low scoring affair.
Gor Mahia vs KCB recent form
Gor Mahia have been decent this season with two wins and two draws from their opening four games. During that time, they have also managed to keep just a clean sheet.
KCB have played four games so far this campaign and the home side have just been better than them by just a point. KCB have already won two games, lost one and drawn another one this season. In addition, they have kept three clean sheets.
