Rivals Addis Ababa, Mariakani Stars Renews Football
Rivalry as Coast League Second Leg Kick-Off  

Coastweek -- Perennial rivals Addis Ababa FC and Mariakani Stars will renew their football rivalry this Sunday in the top of the bill clash at Mariakani secondary school play ground as the second leg of the FKF South Coast Branch league kicks off this weekend across various designated venues.

The match promises lots of fireworks as the two clubs command largest following in Mariakani and a meeting between the two arch rivals becomes the talk of the town and would be discussed in days to come.

Mariakani Stars are placed second position on the nine team Pool A log, with 15 points from 8 matches, four points behind pace setters Shimo Prison and six points ahead of sixth placed Addis Ababa.

Addis Ababa however has a game that is yet to be decided against Mishooroni United that was abandoned in the dying minutes while they were leading 3-1.

Addis Ababa will be seeking to avenge the 3-1 defeat inflicted by Mariakani Stars during the first leg match staged at the same venue.

Mariakani Stars have won all the matches in the previous five encounters between the two teams and start as pre match favourites.

Mariakani Stars current form is devastating having beaten Mishomoroni United 1-4 away at Feeretown, won 3-0 over Kisauni Youth at Mariakani secondary home turf  before 2-3 away victory  over Hippo Rangers from Kaloleni at Mwanjama primary.

With Shimo Prison FC out of action this weekend Mariakani Stars will be aiming at victory to reduce the gap with Shimo Prison at the podium of the table.

Addis Ababa on the other hand hope to end the three match winless streak having been humiliated by Kitivo 2-0 away at Kitivo primary, Shimo Prison 1-3 at Mariakani sendary home, and Kishada 0-1 away at Freretown respectively.

Head to Head 2018- Mariakani 3-1 Addis Ababa; 2017- Addis Ababa 2-5 Mariakani Stars – Marakani Stars 1-0 Addis Ababa; 2016- Addis Ababa 0-4 Mariakani Stars -Mariakani Stars 1-0 Addis Ababa.
