Head-To-Head stats

The two teams have only played 6 times since 2005. However we will be looking at their head-to-head stats from the last five clashes.

Although they have only clashed 6 times in the MTN Elite One since 2005, their last four clashes came in the last two seasons. Bamboutos of Mbouda have won one of the last four clashes at home while the other three ended in a draw.

In total, PWD have scored three times against Bamboutos FC of Mbouda who have also managed three against the Abakwa boys in their last five clashes.


Tactical Analysis

Although lettings a lot of their previous campaign players go during the transfer window, both teams have been strong in the transfer market improving their squad by making a number of major signings as well as promoting youngsters to the first team.

Due to lack of Media coverage, it will be hard for me to pen down a tactical preview on Bamboutos FC and PWD’s pre-season tactics so far.

By looking at their formations, a lot can be said. David Pagou’s PWD Bamenda plays with a 3:4:2:1 shape as seen during their Cameroon cup finals vs Astres of Douala. This shape in a large part of a game is the same as the 3:4:3 formation.

This kind of layout is a very attacking formation: that is to say that you can have up to eight players attacking at once.

It is quite vulnerable in defence simply due to the fact that there are only three dedicated defenders.

For the 3-4-3 formation to work, you need tactically astute players who fully understand their role in the team. They must be flexible and know how to respond both with and without the ball.

If they are not, you risk being overwhelmed in defence as your opponents exploit the gaps and space that the 3-4-3 formation leaves open at the back.

However, David Pagou’s men have shown that they can display top notch defending while playing three at the back by conceding very few goals from last season and during pre-season as seen from Kosi_foottalk and Street Tv Bamenda

One thing left to be said is, if Bamboutos FC will want to win the Abakwa boys, it will be to counter them, maintain great transitional display or play a deep line of defensive display forcing PWD to lose the ball high up the pitch.
