Union Sportive of Douala have won five of their six games in the second round of the season while their host are winless in that time.

“Cotonsport is having difficult times largely because most of their players are with the intermediate Lions. We are not looking at that, we will give our all to get the three points. It is my first coming to Garoua,I come with joy in my heart. It is going to be a special game for me and I pray we get the right results in the spirit of fairplay”: Assana concluded
