Draw at the break

We don’t expect an easy fixture between these teams. Rwanda last hosted Kenya for a fixture in December 2015, a CECAFA match that ended 0-0 in regulator time with the hosts winning in extra time. Kenya won the reverse fixture of that tournament 2-0. A 1-0 setback in the first World Cup qualifiers for Rwanda and a 0-0 draw for Kenya is why we expect a tense game that will be deadlocked in the first half.

Few goals expected

We are also tipping a few goals at full-time. We expense a tense match between Rwanda and Kenya. Both teams are looking to participate in World Cup for the first time. A more defensive approach is expected on both ends and for that, this game will most likely yield a few goals.

No goal-goal

We also don’t expect goals on both sides of the pitch. Rwanda registered seven clean sheets in the last ten games, five of which were goalless draws. On the other hand, Kenya has two clean sheets as many matches. The visitors come to this game with a barren draw in the first match of CAF Group E. A desire to score or at least get the first victory for both sides makes this fixture even more difficult.

Match Preview: Rwanda and Kenya Looking for the First Victory in Group E

Drawn alongside Mali and Uganda, there are three East African countries in CAF Group E World Cup qualifiers. Our fixture preview sheds more light on this game.

Rwanda

Rwanda lost 1-0 to Mali in the first game of Group E but with home advantage in the second fixture, the hosts hope to recoup some points against Kenya. Rwanda previously hosted Kenya in a CECAFA tournament, a match that ended 0-0 in regular time. The hosts will bank on a strong defence that has kept seven clean sheets in the last games to recoup some points in the second game. However, Rwanda should prepare for a tough encounter with Kenya’s Harambee Stars, a team that is ranked 104th by FIFA; 23 places above the hosts.

Kenya

Kenya’s steady rise in the world of Football gives netizens hope of qualifying for the World Cup 2022 in Qatar. The visitors bagged a point against Uganda Cranes in the first match of the tournament in a game that ended 0-0. Kenya’s national soccer team played without fans in the stadium in the first game. A second fixture on the road comes with challenges but head coach, Jacob Mulee, is not yielding and remains positive about great results.
