Tactical Analysis on APEJES Academy team structure
In terms of home ground advantage, i do not find any where to place or categorize APEJES Academy. In their last five games, APEJES Academy is confidently inconsistent whether they play home or away.
APEJES Academy having scored just 5 goals while conceding 8 goals in their last five MTN Elite One games speaks volumes.
For a team in the 5th spot in the classification table and in a league with an average goal per game of 2.13, APEJES Academy really needs to sit up.
From a tactical point of view, APEJES from defence to attack has been miserable in the last five games.
For every football team, without concrete and dynamic midfield both the defence and attack will suffer a lot. I don’t mean to say the midfield is the only issue, but looking into their stats, i can definitely conclude that their midfield has the biggest flaw.

Currently, Coton Sport is the team to beat whether the play home or away in the Elite One championship. They have proven themselves on international and national stages so far this season.
As mentioned earlier, Coton Sport haven scored 9 with just 3 goals conceded in the last five Elite One games cannot be left aside.
From a tactical perspective and not going out of stats from flashscore.com Coton Sport is a well structured team from defence to midfield and then to attack. Their stats don’t lie.
From their full backs and midfield keeping a high line in attack in a counter-pressing system to the threatening crosses from the flanks into the opponents ring, to Lambert Araina’s bullet headers, Coton Sport has got it all in one package.
In their last five clashes in the Elite One championship, APEJES Academy has failed to beat Coton Sport.
Since 2019, Coton Sport has won twice out of their last five encounters against APEJES Academy with the latest win being on the 9th of May 2021 just before the break. This means they have draw three times.
A clash between these two teams never ends goalless. You better prepare yourself for such an entertaining match.
As much as we know Cameroon Football, APEJES Academy is not a bad team, they are just out of form. The question that remains is could they get back to form in this game an hunt the giant Cotonites?
Considering their passed matches which never ends goalless, i predict that there will be goals and this time not from one team but from both.
However, Coton Sport will take home the three points at the end of the match.
My Take: APEJES Academy 1-2 Coton Sport
