Uganda vs Kenya match Analysis and Prediction

Uganda Cranes host Kenya Harambee Stars in a Group E FIFA 2022 World Cup qualifying second round fixture at St Mary’s Stadium this Thursday. The Cranes are currently occupying 2nd place in the standings of group E with eight points, while Kenya is down to 3rd spot with just two points so far.

Uganda come into this on the back of a slender 1-0 victory over Rwanda last month. The cranes have not been high on scoring as they have won in two 1-0 victories and two goalless draws in the four matches played.

The cranes are now on a run of two back-to-back victories and unbeaten in four matches in a row and have not conceded a single goal in the process. Uganda still have a chance of making it into the next round but a win in this match and also in the final match day against Mali is needed.

Harambee stars on the other hand have had a struggle and have not yet managed a win in the qualifiers and will be looking forward to change this record. They have started their group stage campaign with two draws and two defeats and have only managed to score once.

After suffering a loss in their previous game against Mali in WC Qualifiers – Africa competition, Harambee stars will be on the improvement in the striking end to get goals with Michael Olunga as the main man here.

Before the two recent losses, Kenya was defeated just twice in the sixteen previous matches and most of the matches in this run have ended in a 2-1/ 1-0 goal scoring. Coming to this match this trend may continue.
