AFC Leopards kept their perfect start to the 2020-21 Kenyan Premier League season with a convincing 2-0 victory over newbies Bidco United at Kasarani Stadium on Sunday.
Former Zambia’s Power Dynamos FC striker Elvis “Machapo” Rupia grabbed a brace; scoring in the 70th and 85th minutes to secure the win.
Ingwe were 2-1 victors over Tusker FC in match day one and are now joint top of the 18-team log together with KCB FC, who boasts a better goal difference.
Rupia’s brace was Leopards’ 36 overall since 2009 according to @Mketu.
As asked in the DM @AFCLeopards have had 36 braces since 2009 in the @FKFPLG – and today's brace means it is only the class of 2014 that failed to register a brace for the whole season pic.twitter.com/E6Nu8FJ4ZH
