In Form New Stars Of Douala

 

The Limbe Omnisport stadium will host a pulsating relegation battle between two sides rich in name and success (Fovu club of Baham and New stars of Douala).

STAKES

The importance of one match, one point, one goal or one howler cannot be overemphasized in the ‘play down’. The Relegation group consisting of the six worst teams during the regular season is gradually taking shape, and with New stars and Fovu losing their first games, this game would act as a form of redemption and lift either side from the worrisome: 6th place for Fovu and 5th place for New stars to a mid-table place.

Players to watch

Striker’s of both clubs should be licking their lips for this game given the horrible defensive records of these two. Victor Mengue and Jongmu Rudolf as a pair have 9 goals between them and can unlock any defense. New stars have changed their center forwards a number of times this season-Lane Roland provided an assist in the game lost against PWD, and should Aristide Martial play more minutes, he could be a handful for Fovu defenders.
