New Star defy Coton Sport
The club from Garoua is the current leader and best defence in the Championship with two goals conceded since the start of the season and will face the best attack of the Elite one.
President Faustin Domkeu’s men, who are lying fourth in the league standings, have scored 16 times in eight matches and have just garnered a victory against another promoted team, Njalla Quan de Limbé.
But Robert Boivin’s protégés have still not suffered a defeat this season, and will try to maintain their distance from Union and Unisport.
The “Nassara Kamakai” fell 1-0 on Scorpion soil on Thursday in a postponed Day 7 match, and remain at two points from the Cotonculteurs. They will also have a tough job on Sunday against Canon on their grounds, Stade Ahmadou Ahidjo de Yaoundé.
“Kpa Kum” have strung together four matches with no defeat, and could join the top of the table in the case of a victory.
Lying third and at three points from the leader, Unisport du Haut-Nkam will host Njalla Quan in Bafang. This encounter will be an excellent opportunity for “Flambeau de l’Ouest” to put pressure on the leading duo.
Lying in wait behind the heavyweights, the foursome Panthère du Ndé, Astres de Douala, YOSA and Sable de Batié have a good opportunity to make up some ground faced with the weaker teams on the log.
