APEJES vs Colombe Lobo past few games stats.
APEJES Academy have played 5 games this season winning two, draw in two and losing the most recent against UMS of Loum in a 1-0 away defeat.
Apejes Academy’s two wins came when they played home against Canon of Yaounde in a thrilling 3-2 encounter and a 1-0 win against New Stars. Their opening game against Canon of Yaounde has been their toughest game so far this season.
Both their two draws and the lost came when they played away from home. This means Apejes Academy has a poor away form compared to their home form.
Also, since scoring thrice against Canon of Yaounde, Apejes Academy has failed to score in three of their last four games. Their only goal since their win against Canon came in a win against New Stars of Douala. This shows that Apejes has a poor attacking or finishing power.
Colombe Lobo has managed just 1 win in five games this season. They managed to draw in their first two opening games before two consecutive home and away defeats group leader Panthere and Les Astres sitting 5th.
APEJES Academy Form: W.D.W.D.L
After two away games this 2020-2021 season, Colombe Lobo has managed a 1-1 draw against UMS of Loum and a 2-1 defeat by Les Astres. That’s not a bad away form as they travel to face Apejes Academy.
However, in a league where the goal scoring ratio per game is less than 3.5, conceding in four out of five games means Colombe has to sort out their defensive structure.
Also considering they have won only one game but have succeeded to score in three of their five games played indicates a good attack.
Colombe Lobo will be going to face Apejes with a lot of confidence acquired from their win against Yong sport Academy last week.

Apejes Academy have faced off Colombe Lobo 8 times since the 2017/2018 season with the games mostly ending neutral. Colombe Lobo has only managed one win while Apejes has managed two wins in those 8 games. They have drawn 5 times with the draws mostly ending 1-1 or 0-0.
Their last two encounter in 2019 and 2021 saw them draw 0-0 in both games. There have never been an encounter between these team since 2017 with more than three goals. They have managed three goals just once in the last 8 games.
This is one kind of game fans hate to watch because of lack of games but it however shows how tough the rivalry between these teams is.
Apejes Academy 1-1 Colombe Lobo
Apejes has a good home form but somehow out of confidence amidst their last two games. Colombe has a neutral away form and confidence coming into this game with a win against Yong Sport last week.
Looking into their head to head form, it’s not surprising to think the game will be a draw. The question still remains that but which draw? Draw with goals or goalless?
I think considering that Colombe has got a good attacking power this season even while playing away, a single goal against Apejes will force the host to equalize and will most definitely end like that.
