Players To Watch

There is just no way one can talk about Cotonsport of Garoua without mentioning the name of Kamilou Daouda. He is the club’s current top scorer with 10 goals this season 6 of his goals have been scored in the league and he will certainly be the man to cause problems for the young APEJES defensive compartment just like Arnaud Sibiri and Guime Araina if he starts. In the APEJES of Mfou camp Top scorer Robert Armand Tamatieu with 3 goals will be their main man just like Akoh Chrisiantus on 2 goals this season.

APEJES center back Ulrich Yampili will be the lining up against his former club at the Amadou Ahidjo stadium.

This promises to be entertaining given that this its a meeting of two clubs interested in having a ball on their feet at all times.
