All roads lead to Moi International Sports Centre in Kasarani, as Police FC host AFC Leopards in a Kenya Premier League battle on Saturday. Kick off is set at 3:00 PM local time, 23 September 2023.

Police FC played out a 1-1 draw with Shabana at the Raila Odinga Stadium last week with a late goal from Clinton Kinanga deep into added time ensuring they earned a point.

Meanwhile AFC Leopards scrapped a 0-0 draw with Muhoroni Youth in Game Week 2 in an encounter that left much to be desired in the attacking sense.

While both teams have two draws and one loss so far this campaign, which of these teams will emerge victorious in this clash or will there be another draw?

Police FC vs AFC Leopards predictions

Neither of these teams has won a match this season; as such, this match presents an opportunity for one Police or Leopards to pick up their first win of the 2023/24 Kenya Premier League.

Prediction 1: AFC Leopards Win or Draw

The Makarao have not lost in the last four encounters with Kenya Police FC. As a matter of fact, Leopards have not conceded in their last two visits to Police FC and have emerged victorious in one of two last meetings away at Police. Although this fixture will be particularly tough for Leopards, still we fancy them to continue their unbeaten run by not losing to Kenya Police on Saturday afternoon.

Prediction 2: Both Teams to Score – No

Our second prediction for this clash is on both sides not scoring. Past results between these clubs have seen just goals at both ends in one encounter. It's worth mentioning that AFC Leopards have not been involved in goal-goal affairs in their first three league games ahead of this clash. On one hand, Police FC have managed one goal-goal result in their last three games, but the fact that these two teams struggle in front of goal, this clash looks likely to see both teams not scoring together in the match.

Prediction 3: Under 2.5 Total Goals

All three games for the Makarao this season ahead of this clash have gone under 2.5, three of Police's matches this season have only witnessed at least three goals in one fixture, interestingly, it was their opponent who scored all the goals. Knowing that these teams lack goal-scoring knack, we fancy an under 2.5 outcome here on Saturday afternoon.

Police FC vs AFC Leopards Head-to-Head

In the head-to-head records of their last five matches, Police FC won 0 direct matches, AFC Leopards won 2 matches, while 3 matches ended in a draw.
