Being top of the log and remaining unbeaten is a sight that Gor Mahia fans have become used to since the beginning of the 2015 season.
The Kenya Premier League champions transferred their league form that has blown domestic teams aside this season to continental level as they finished top of their Group A at the ongoing Cecafa Kagame Cup in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.
Their latest result was a 3-1 defeat of Djibouti side Telecom which ensured Kogalo finished top of Group A with 10 points, one better than Yanga who beat Sudanese outfit Al Khartoum 1-0 courtesy of a solitary goal from Amissi Tambwe.
By virtue of finishing top of their group, Gor Mahia were destined to face a less potent side in the quarters and so it happened after they landed Group C whipping boys Malakia. The South Sudanese outfit only squeezed through as the best third-placed team, edging KMKM on goal difference.
Kogalo will face Malakia in the opening match on Tuesday, July 28.
