Young Africans can not expect any pleasantries from their host Ruvu Shooting in this Ligi kuu Bara game. Here's our full preview!

Insights:
  • Ruvu Shooting have the fewest dropped points from leading position (3) in Ligi kuu Bara
  • Young Africans have the most points from losing position (8) in Ligi kuu Bara

Both teams have had enough rest since their last competitive action. Let's hope for an energetic game!

17-7-5 (wins/draws/losses). These are the numbers for Young Africans when playing away games on grass, which is not the surface they have on their own home stadium (which has artifical turf). Their goal statistics from those 29 matches are 36-19 (scored/conceded).

Relegation threatens Shooting who should definitely be looking for some points here. Africans are still fighting for top positions and their benefits.

Ruvu Shooting form and stats

7-3-3 (win-draw-lost) are the Ligi kuu Bara numbers at home for Ruvu Shooting so far this season. It's trouble wherever Ruvu Shooting are playing these days as they have suffered four straight defeats now, regardless of arena. They really need to get back to winning ways.

The Ruvu Shooting fans got no joy from their last match, a Ligi kuu Bara game also here at Benjamin Mkapa National Stadium: A 0-3 defeat against Simba (placed 1st).

Prior to that was the away defeat visiting Kagera Sugar (1-3).

Shooting are certainly not overdoing their scoring at home in league matches, having created 19 goals in 13 games. From these home matches, Shooting have conceded only 10 goals.

Young Africans form and stats

Young Africans have an excellent away record in the Ligi kuu Bara so far with 8-5-1 from 14 games.

Africans have succeeded in guarding their own goal lately, led by their goalkeeper. It's been 184 minutes since they last conceded in Ligi kuu Bara.

It's the second away game in a row for Africans, but there's smiles all around after the 2-0 victory versus JKT Tanzania (placed 15th) in the Ligi kuu Bara last time out.

Before that, Africans travelled to Namungo and returned home with a draw after the game finished 0-0.

After this away game Africans return home for a Ligi kuu Bara game against Mwadui. That game is only three sleeps after this.

Young Africans find the net regularly in their away games. 20 goals from 14 away fixtures in the league. Young Africans are tighter than a frog's bottom, as only 6 away goals have been conceded so far.

Head 2 Head

This is not the first time this season these parties meet, as the history books show this recent fixture: Young Africans - Ruvu Shooting 2-1. Head-to-head totals (for the last nine meetings): Shooting won one game, one match ended with a draw and Young Africans has seven wins. Over 2,5 goals / under 2,5 goals: four / five
