Simba and Yanga are set to face each other for the second time this season in the Mapinduzi Cup final scheduled for Wednesday night at the Amaan Stadium.

Kisinda, Mukoko Tonombe, Paul Godfrey, Abdalla Shaibu and Zawadi Mauya scored for Wananchi while Michal Sarpong’s effort was stopped by Benedict Haule.
“Bruce Kangwa, Ally Niyonzima, Mudathir Yahya, and Nicholas Wadada scored for Azam while Awesu Awesu and Daniel Amoah failed to beat Farouk Shikhalo.
It will be the second time the two sworn rivals will be meeting this season. In the league assignment, the two giants settled for a 1-1 draw.
