Ahead of the Friday kick-off, both teams have played five games and are ranked 9th and 13th respectively.

Kakamega Homeboyz vs Talanta predictions
Prediction 1: Draw
Predicting a match to end full-time draw is one of the hardest predictions to make; however, we back this clash to end in stalemates. This is because Kakamega Homeboyz have failed to win in their two last home games; losing one and drawing one, while Talanta have drawn two of their last four matches. It's important to also mention that both teams are only separated by one point, as such, a draw is a big possibility here.
Prediction 2: Both teams to score
Even though only one game out of the last four meetings in this fixture have produced goals at both ends, we're still backing this clash to end with both sides on the score-sheet. It's worth mentioning that ahead of this match, Kakamega Homeboyz and Talanta FC have both been involved in both teams scoring games in two of their last four. We fancy a 1-1 scoreline.
Prediction 3: Under 2.5 total goals
The Kenyan league has a reputation of playing lots of underscoring outcomes and these two teams are not left aside. Out of five games played this season for both teams, only seven goals have been scored. Also, the last four clashes between them have ended in three under 2.5 results.
Kakamega Homeboyz vs Talanta head-to-head
The head-to-head record of the last four games between them shows that both teams have won 2 games apiece with no game drawn.
