Tactical View on Yong Sports Academy of Bamenda Team Structure
As stated earlier, Yong Sports has only won two of their past five matches and also, two of all 7 matches they have played so far this season. That’s a worrying trend.
Tactically speaking, Yong Sports is a dangerous opponent to face in their home ground. In the last five games, they have played thrice at home and won twice and a draw.
It is worth noting that they have not also conceded any goals in those three home matches.
They have also, only lost with a goal difference in their two away matches from the past five games.
From a tactical perspective, in a league with an average goal per game ratio of 2.13, Yong Sports have managed to score 6 goals in their pass five games while conceding thrice. Not bad for a club in the 8th position (Relegation play-off zone). This means Yong Sports Academy has both good attacking and defensive structure but it seems they need to work more on their creativity. This could be a problem from the midfielders.
To conclude, although Yong Sports may have been below their standards so far, they are warriors at home with the determination of always wanting to emerge winners and keep a smile of the faces of their fans.

Tactical View on Tonnerre Kalara club of Yaounde Team Structure
Tonnerre seems to be a side to fear when they play away from home. They have not managed a single lose so far this campaign when they play away.
Statistically, Tonnerre has zero (0) goal difference in their last five games after netting five and conceding five times in those games.
With their last win against APEJES Academy before the Elite One break, Tonnerre has got a good run of form in the Cameroon cup. However the were knocked out in the round of 8 by Elite One giants Coton Sport of Garoua.
From a tactical perspective, in a league with an average goal per game ratio of 2.13, 5 goals in 5 games is still not that bad. However conceding 5 goals in five games is something to worry about.
Due to the lack of match footages, i cannot tactically point out which department in the team is weak. According to their aforementioned goal difference, it will possibly be the midfield or defence. That is to say maybe the midfielders are not contributing enough in attacking phases (score more goals) or defensive phases (avoid conceding goals).
Tonnerre needs to sort out their midfield to defensive line.

Predictions: Yong Sports vs Tonnerre
Though Yong Sports Academy has been poor all season and has not shown any better signs since the break in the Cameroon cup, their home advantage and determination is worth noting.
If you are looking for a fan base who will turn up for their team despite what-so-ever, it is Yong Sports and they is no way the players will want to see their ans with a sad face.
However, Tonnerre who who has been in better shape this season than last season, will not be an easy side anyways. To even think they have not lost an away game this season is mouth watering.
If Yong Sports will have to score, i see Tonnerre scoring as well. The question that remains is who will emerge winner?
My (BraggsSports) Take: Yong Sports 1-1 Tonnerre
