Last 5 Match Stats
Tonnerre Kalara Club of Yaounde last five Elite One match stats
Tonnerre who was relegated in the last Elite One campaign but was reintroduced into the championship amidst splitting of this season into two pools has been improving recently.
They have only lost once in their last five outings in the Elite One. However, they have drawn thrice and won once in their last five outings though with their last draw coming against their now opponent on matchday 10 Yong Sports Academy.
Tactical Analysis on Tonnerre team structure
Tonnerre seems to be a side to fear when they play away than at 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 four and conceding four times in those games.
Considering the Kalara boys have only conceded 4 goals in 5 games, that is fine. However attacking-wise, that is not fine with just 4 goals scored.
Looking at this stats, i can say that Tonnerre needs more influence from the midfield to attack or maybe the full backs are not doing their job upfront.
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 to attack or the fullbacks are not doing their job upfront. That is to say maybe the midfielders are not contributing enough in attacking phases (score more goals) or defensive phases (avoid conceding goals).

Tactical Analysis on Yong Sports team structure
Yong Sports Academy is tactically a weak side when the play away from home. Could this be a lack of fans? Or a lack of confidence? Who knows? Only them.
Generally speaking, Yong Sports is a dangerous opponent in the Elite One championship.
They have only lost with -2 goals 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 5 goals in their pass five games while conceding thrice. Not bad for a club in the 8th position.
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 as well as the fullbacks since their style of play prioritizes crosses a lot.
The two teams in their last five Elite One clashes since 2014 saw Yong Sports emerge winner in three occasions while Tonnerre won in once. They have drawn once since then.
Tonnerre Kalara’s only win against Yong Sports came in a 1-0 home win in 2019.
The clashes between these two teams is always tough one with most of it always ending with nearly 1-0 difference or a scoreless match.
Though one here to predict after their 0-0 draw last week. I don’t see any draw in this game. The better team will take the day
My take: the better team wins
