Eding looked more lively up front, and threatened through Bony Elame, who came closed to adding a third for Eding shortly before half time, but his shot was narrowly pushed out for a corner kick. Eding effected one substitution before half time, with Joel Nelson Moukeu coming in for Jean Lovis Nnomo.

Goalkeeper Marcelin Mbahbi made a timely outing at the 85th minute, to deny Marcel Batai from a one on one.
