Gor Mahia players spent their first two days in Malabo relaxing and getting familiar with the playing surface at the Nuevo Estadio de Malabo, where the return leg will be played. Gor Mahia will have to do without striker Jacque Tuyisenge who has been ruled out after picking up an injury against Zoo Kericho.
Taking a 2-0 lead into the match, Kogalo should be taking no chances against this side. When playing at home and with help from referees, they are capable of springing a surprise. Back in 2014, Gor Mahia played US Bitam of Gabon and the referee blatantly tried to help the Gabonese side. Only the heroics of Jerim Onyango saved Kogalo.
