Gor Mahia edged out New Star de Douala 2-1 in a CAF Confederations Cup playoff round match played on Sunday, January 13, 2019, at the MISC Kasarani.

The hosts had a promising start to the match, restricting New Stars to only a handful of chances with the ball, but wasteful attacking saw them wait a little longer for the opener.

Lawrence Juma got to the end of a Francis Kahata cross to put Gor in the front foot, a lead they held onto until halftime.

New Star would, however, pull one back through a corner kick in the second half but it is K’ogallo who had the last laugh when Jacques Tuyisenge rose high to head in an exquisite delivery by Shafik Batambuze.

The Kenyan Champions will hope to defend their one-goal advantage when they play the second leg in Cameroon on January 20, 2019, with the winner on aggregate set to grace the Group Stages of the CAF Confederations Cup.
