But it is the marquee fixture between Gor Mahia and Nzoia Sugar, hosted at the Raila Odinga Stadium in Homa Bay town, that has captured the imagination of fans and pundits alike.

Gor Mahia, the record Premier League champions, have surged to the summit of the league table following a spectacular victory over Kariobangi Sharks.

With the league nearing to Christmass break, the K'Ogalo faithful eagerly await another triumph that would bring them one step closer to retaining their coveted crown.

Meanwhile, Murang'a Seal, a team once considered solid and lethal, has suffered back-to-back losses, leaving them yearning for redemption.

Seals quest for revival sees them pitted against Ulinzi Stars on their home turf, as they seek to bounce back to their winning ways.

In another Saturday fixture, Nairobi City Stars and Bandari will lock horns at Ruaraka Grounds at 3:15 p.m.

Fans can expect an intense battle as these two teams aim to showcase their skills and secure crucial points in this competitive league.

Sunday promises a thrilling lineup of five matches, with Kakamega Homeboyz going head-to-head against Shabana at Bukhungu Stadium.

The Abana Abeingo will look to capitalize on their home advantage and secure a vital victory to strengthen their position in the title race.

Shabana, on the other hand, is striving to reverse their fortunes in the top flight and relieve the mounting pressure.

Sofapaka and Kariobangi Sharks will collide at Kenyatta Stadium in a matchup that promises fireworks. Both teams are eager to secure a win and improve their standings, making this encounter a must-watch for football aficionados.

Elsewhere, Muhoroni Youth will face off against Police FC in what is expected to be an exciting contest with both sides aiming to secure valuable points.

Posta Rangers, fresh from a defeat against City Stars, faces a stern test against Tusker, with both teams harboring hopes of victory.

The Mailmen are eager to bounce back and regain their winning momentum while also keeping a watchful eye on Gor Mahia's fortunes, hoping for a chance to return to the top spot.

Tusker, on the other hand, seeks to reverse their recent string of poor performances and rekindle their title ambitions. It promises to be a hard-fought match between these determined teams.

AFC Leopards, who recently held Tusker to a goalless draw, have another challenging fixture as they take on Bidco United at Kasarani Main Stadium.
