Fovu Baham vs PWD Bamenda past few games stats.
Fovu Baham is one of the Elite One teams whose home form may be easy to predict. After playing three times at home this season, Fovu managed to win all three while drawing twice away and losing one.
The Opening match of the new Elite One season saw Fovu Baham trashed Stade Renard 2-1 at home while their second win came against Yafoot in a 1-0 home victory before demolishing Bamboutos of Mbouda 3-1 last week still at home.
Analytical views on Fovu Team Structure
With three wins and two draws in six games played, Fovu is definitely on of the best teams this season.
After scoring in all their home games, with the first win and most recent ending with more than 1 goal, Fovu Baham definitely has a good attacking frontline. Even their away draws shows they always make sure to score.
But the fact that a team that’s on a good run of form concedes on 5 of their six games shows their defensive structure to be lacking rigidness.
PWD of Bamenda who however started the season with a 1-0 away win against Yafoot were stranded with four consecutive draws before their 1-2 victory against Feutcheu (Djiko FC) over the weekend.

PWD Bamenda bounced back to winning ways against Feutcheu after their second most recent game against Dragon of Yaounde which ended in a 2-2 draw saw the referee gave two soft second half penalties against PWD Bamenda.
Analytical views on PWD Team Structure
A good point of view here is that PWD has not lost any away match this season despite their poor goal scoring ratio.
Despite their first four games always ending to a 1-1 draw or a 1-0 win, PWD Bamenda has shown in their last two games that they can score more than a goal in a single match. This means their midfield to attack is improving.

The big picture remains that the Abakwa boys have conceded just three goals in three away games with two being penalties. They have also just conceded one goal at home. That’s one of the best defensive teams in the league right now.
The two teams have only played five times since 2005. However, Fovu Baham has been the better team winning twice in five outings.
Their first clash came in October 2005 in a goalless draw. Since 2017, Fovu have won twice with their first win being a 2-0 away win and their most recent in January 2020 being a 2-1 home win. The other two outings saw them end up in a goalless draw.
Fovu Baham 1-1 PWD Bamenda
Fovu Baham is a beast at home. The sheerness from the midfielder, the clinicality from the attackers, Fovu have got it all upfront. However, their defence needs a bit of sorting.
PWD will come into the game with a lot of goal scoring confidence from their last two games. And to add, a rigid defensive line.
There is high possibility that PWD will score and Fovu with their high pressing line will also score. But i don’t see anyone winning this game. It is definitely a draw and possibly a 1-1 draw.
