Gor Mahia vs RSB Berkane Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


A home win is the tip when Gor Mahia welcome RSB Berkane to the Moi International Sports Centre for the first leg of their CAF Confederation Cup quarter final tie. The hosts have won their last five matches across all competitions and are predicted to claim the victory on Sunday.

Gor Mahia FC Form & Team News


Gor Mahia ended their campaign in Group D with a 1-0 victory over Angolan club Petro de Luanda thanks to a second half penalty from Jacques Tuyisenge. The result meant they finished second to book their place in the quarter finals.

Hassan Oktay's men head into Sunday's clash off the back of a 3-2 victory away at Sony Sugar in the Kenyan Premier League. They are currently on a five-match winning run across all competitions and have also won their last four home matches in the CAF Confederation Cup.

Tuyisenge is the man tasked with leading the line for Gor Mahia and the striker heads into Sunday's clash with nine goals in his last 10 matches. He also has four goals in this year's Confederation Cup and should be supported in attack by Nicholas Kipkirui, who has scored twice in the competition.

RSB Berkane Form & Team News


Berkane finished top of the standings in Group A having claimed three wins from six matches. They suffered a 1-0 defeat at Hassania Agadir in their final outing in the round robin phase of the competition.

The Moroccans have struggled in recent matches, claiming one win in their last six outings. They have suffered three defeats in that run and were held to a 1-1 draw at home against Kouribga in a Moroccan Botola clash on Monday.

Fo-Doh Laba has scored three goals in his last four matches and the striker is expected to lead the line on Sunday. The forward is set to feature in attack for a Berkane team that has lost three of their last four away matches.

This will be the first ever meeting between Gor Mahia and RSB Berkane.

Gor Mahia vs RSB Berkane Match Up 


Tuyisenge has been excellent for Gor Mahia in recent matches with nine goals in his last 10 matches and four in this year's Confederation Cup. With Kipkirui providing support, the Kenyans should have too much quality for Berkane.

The visitors appear to be heavily reliant on Laba, who has three goals in his last four matches. The striker carries a bulk of the team's attacking threat and is likely to struggle on his own against the Kenyans.

Gor Mahia vs RSB Berkane Key Statistics


  • Gor Mahia have won their last 5 matches (all competitions).

  • RSB Berkane have lost 3 of their last 4 away matches (all competitions).

Verdict


Gor Mahia have maintained an excellent home record in the CAF Confederation Cup having won their last four matches in the competition. With Berkane struggling away from home in recent matches, I am predicting a win for the Kenyans.
