Canon Sportif de Yaoundé, ranked 2nd with the best attack, will chase tonight the lead of the group as the club face this Wednesday evening, Les Astres FC, ranked 1st with the best defense.
A conquerors team this season, Les Astres are currently the top of the group with 4 wins and a draw in their last 5 outings. They have conceded only 3 goals and scored 8. While the KPAKUM registered 3 wins and 2 defeats, they have scored 8 goals and conceded 7.
Since 2004, these two teams faced each other 28 times with 12 wins and 30 goals for Astres against 8 wins and 29 goals for KPAKUM.
The man to watch in the Douala’ side is no one than the former Canon Sportive de Yaoundé’s player, Axel NDZANA, who is not only tenacious in defense but also very dangerous on set plays he recently became the defender who scored the most large number of goals in the Cameroonian championship (63). He already scored 4 goals this season including 2 free kicks, 2 headed goals; which is pretty good for a defender.
For the Kpakum, EYANGO PRISO Will be the man to watch, even though he made the Starting XI list only 2 times, he is already the Elite One top scorer and he will intend to increase his 5 goals scored so far.
This encounter is a promising one. Either Les Astres will consolidate their first place, or Kpakum will regain its position as leader. Anyway, there is still a long way to go and nothing will guarantee the winner a place in the playoffs now.
The top of the group battle is scheduled for Wednesday April 27, 2022 at the Ngoa-Ekele stadium from 6 p.m.
