Apejes Vs Dragon FC

Clash of the “pretentious contenders”

Wednesday, November 6th

3:00 pm

For some time Apejes of Mfou and Dragon sportive of Yaounde have been unerring when it comes to producing talents in and out of the country, a reason for the clash of the “reservoirs” tag.

APEJES straight away are going to miss Dande Junior out on national team duties. The 2016 Cameroon cup winners come into this one on the back of an aching defeat against Fovu. The result of last weekend gives APEJES a report card of two wins and two defeats in four. Anjeh Akoh is the club’s highest goal scorer with two goals these early days. After having started the league on a brilliant footing, Dragon must have ran out of gaz. The boys of Francois Ngoumou are winless in their last two after picking up victories against heavyweights, USD and UMS in their opening two games.

Ngoa Ekelle (Military stadium)

Old Timers Classic

6:30 pm

Canon vs TKC

This game is the biggest in Cameroon, Africa, and perhaps the world. The high profile encounter is between arguably the two most dominant clubs in the history of Cameroon football, with all due respect to Cotonsport. It however comes at a time when the clubs are not only out of form, but maybe they have equally lost purpose. TKC can boast of two draws, two points while Canon’s 3-0 victory against Avion on opening day remains their only maximum points gathered, together with a draw over Bamboutos, taking their points total to four.
