Union Sportive Douala Starting XI against PWD

TKC will come to USD’s backyard this Sunday in Lmbe. The top versus bottom teams clash this weekend will be an avenue for Union to exact revenge on TKC that beat them 3 nil just over a month ago in Yaounde.TKC tails Pool B will USD are the surprised but impressive leaders in the group.

History

These two are greats as per the Cameroon league. Tonnere is a legendary club in the nation’s football, with her creation in 1934 proven well and truly above most, while Union was created in 1957; a 17-year-old difference between the two.

The both teams have been champions of Cameroon 5 times each, but have slowed in recent times; reminiscent to this fact is the 7th place finish of USD last season, and the fact that Tonnere is just making her way back into the big time.

Current Form

Both clubs won their last game of the first round.

The host USD have picked up 14 points from  8 matches this season and won their last home game by 1 goal to nil against favourites Cotonsport of Garoua. USD have registered 4 wins , 4 draws and 2 defeats this season.They have scored 7 times and conceded 5 goals, For TKC they have accumulated just 8 points in 8 games this season.They have 2 wins,2 draws and 4 defeats this season and scored in their last visit to Limbe though they suffered a 2-1 defeat to New Stars in That game.TKC  have scored 8 goals and conceded 13 this season.

As seen in the last 13 meetings, one team is yet to beat another on both legs in a season. However, Tonnere has the upper hand with 5 victories while USD follows with 3, and there has been 5 matches separated on a parity basis.

Players To Watch

Gregoire Nkama of TKC and Cyrille Tchayi of USD have 3 goals to their credit this season.Nkama is on a run of 3 goals in 4 matches this season while Olympic Lion Tchayi brings the lucky touch;USD wins whenever he scores.

The connection between Yves Eloundou Tanguy and Gael Gregoire Nkama is going to be the major strength for coach Jules Abah who has an over 5 years experience of managing this club given that he was there when they were relegated in 2015 and got them promoted again this year. In the USD camp coach Pogne Love will be counting on in-form Nlend Samuel and Tchayi Cyrille Tchamba to provide the spark upfront.
