FC Talanta produced the biggest upset of the 18th round of the FKF National Super League when they thumped Wazito 3-1 on Monday, March 4, 2019, at Camp Toyoyo.

Paul Karuri netted a brace, with Abdulwahab Adam also on the scoresheet as the Communications Authority-sponsored side cemented fourth place. Kennedy Ayako’s goal in the second half could only count as a consolation.
