Gor Mahia is scheduled to play against AFC Leopards on Sunday, January 29, 2023, at 3:00 PM. The Mashemeji derby is expected to be one of the most heated matches of the 2022/23 season. Both of the teams have a lot at stake given the current standings of the FKF premier league table.

KÓgallo is holding the fourth position on the premier league table with 20 points. A victory for the team will grant them the much-needed boost to advance their position to the top three. Gor Mahia has lost only one game throughout the whole season and will be looking forward to defending that reputation. In the last five matches, Gor Mahia has won thrice, lost once, and drawn once.

AFC Leopards, on the other hand, ranks seventh on the premier league table with 17 points. Three points will go a long way in elevating their position. AFC too has displayed an impressive game and has only lost twice throughout the whole season. Ingwe has recorded three consecutive victories and 2 losses in their last five matches in the league.

The Mashemeji Derby previously referred to as the Nairobi Derby, has a long-standing history in Kenyan football. The title 'Mashemeji' is a Swahili word that translates to 'In-Laws' in English. The name stems from the close cultural ties that the Luhya community, which majorly supports AFC Leopards, has with the Luo community which majorly supports Gor Mahia.
