Union Douala and PWD Bamenda Previous games Stats
Union Douala Stats
Union Douala are on one of their worse forms ever. Since their 1-1 draw away to Bamboutos of Mbouda on matchday 5, Union Douala have not managed to win or draw again. They also have not managed a single goal since then.
Analytical Analysis on Union Douala’s Team Structure
With just one wins and three draws after 9 games, Union Douala is definitely one of the worst Elite One teams this season.
Union has a really poor front line as well as a poor defensive backline. They have managed to score just 5 goals so far this season. They have also conceded 11 goals. That speaks volume about the structure of the team. The lack of creativity and movement from midfield as well plays a bigger picture in scoring goals as well as defending.
The whole team needs a new structure, new mindset to win games if they want to stay in the Elite One next season.

PWD Bamenda Stats
After hitting one pass Yafoot on their Elite One opening matchday, PWD went on a poor run of form with four consecutive draws before rediscovering their form in a 2-1 win away against the tough Feutcheu side. Since then, they have become a fierce MTN Elite One Champion again. They have managed to win two f their last three games.
Analytical Analysis on PWD Bamenda’s Team Structure
In football, a team that doesn’t concede is always a title challenger. The Abakwa Boys have gone six games out of their nine Elite One matches without conceding a goal. They have only conceded 2 goals in one of the other three games which were all controversial second half penalties when they faced Dragon of Yaounde.
PWD Bamenda has only conceded a total of four goals while scoring eight in nine games. Looking tactically into the team structure, PWD defines a true epitome of a balance team. A balance team must always consist of numerical superiority, individual superiority, team play as well as a great tactical coach to execute the task. Being the only team without a defeat so far through out the season illustrates that.
FORM Last Five Matches: D.W.D.W.W
The two teams have only played five times since 2005.However we will be looking at their stats from the last five clashes.
The two means clashed five times in the pas two seasons. They however clashed 4 times in the Elite One in 2019 which is unexplainable in a league were two teams face each other just twice. The Abakwa boys have emerged winners three of their last 5 clashes against Union Sportive of Douala while drawing once.
In total, PWD have scored six times against Union Sportive of Douala who have managed just four against the Abakwa boys in their last five clashes.
Union Douala 1-2 PWD Bamenda
Union Douala may have been poor in their last couple of games. They will be looking on scoring a goal to regain their goal scoring confidence.
However, PWD who is still in form will go home with the three points despite the away disadvantages. The Abakwa boys will be stepping in with lots of confidence from their last few matches on all corners of the field.
One major reason all the teams will want to display good football and possibly score goals will be the first of its kind in the league when CRTV Sport will be broadcasting the game LIVE on Sunday at 3 PM GMT +1 at the Douala Reunification stadium.
