A classic David and Goliath match is on the cards, Dodoma Jiji being David while Young Africans, also known as Yanga, will be the Goliath on the day. This is an exciting kickstart to the new year for Dodoma Jiji, a good result will send them to cloud nine as they celebrate New Year’s Eve.

Young Africans are the biggest team in Tanzania and oldest side in the league, having been established in 1936. Yanga has won multiple Tanzanian League titles; they are one of the top teams in Tanzania for a reason. Although their home ground, the CCM Kirumba Stadium, is known as a fortress, this season, they have played four home games and won all four.
Their home form has seen them be at the top of the log with 26 points. They are tipped to run away with the league; the team is too strong and plays good football. They will go to their encounter against Dodoma Jiji as the favourites.
Don’t be fooled. The underdog tag suits Dodoma Jiji in this instance and they do have a strong chance of pulling off an upset. However, a giant will be in front of them, and they will want to slay it just like David did. Therefore, Dodoma Jiji will have to play with no fear at the CCM Kirumba Stadium; they should try to go toe to toe with Yanga.

Dodoma will be confident ahead of Friday’s match; they won their last game against Namungo, beating them 2-1. The result took Dodoma to sixth place on the log with 16 points. A good result against Yanga will see them go as high as third place.
