Cameroon Elite One: Dragon Yaounde Lead’s Worst Top 5 Defending Teams After Match Day 28



dragon yaounde

With the Elite One season coming to a dramatic and nail-biting finale at the ends of the table, it’s worth taking a look at the defenses that have got their respective teams to their current standing, at the bottom.

Looking at the official table, it is easy to guess who has the leakiest backline but dig deeper and there are plenty of intriguing details to uncover.

Dragon FC Yaounde

Statistics don’t lie, and the figures against Dragon Yaoundè are pretty damning. They have conceded the most goals in the division with 43 goals on the Against column, while only two teams have enjoyed less possession than them thus far.

They have also conceded an average of 18.1 shots per game, again the highest of the 18 teams and just marginally more than Eding Sport and Avion academy. Their tally of 14 defeats is also the highest in the Elite One, although, with one win and one defeat in their last two games against  Feutcheu FC and relegation rival AS Fortuna, it appears their season is not doomed just yet with six more playing days to go and with all facts and figures, concludes they have the worst defense in the Elite One this season

You’d imagine a defense with the vast experience from last season, should not be as porous as it has been, but with just five clean sheets it is no surprise to see them at the bottom of this ranking.

Eding Sport FC De La Lekié

Either Eding Sport is the nicest, most mannerly team in the Elite One or they just don’t know how to defend. The Lekie’s began the season with Minkreo Birwe in charge before replacing him with Jules Abah Onana in January, but very little has changed in the defense.

They have also conceded an average of 20.2 shots per game. Their tally of 13 defeat is also the second-highest in the Elite One, although, with two wins in their last two games against Tonnerre Kalara Club and title chaser’s Coton Sport of Garoua it appears their season is going to be favorable as they now occupy the 10th position. With facts and figures, sees them as the second-worst defense in the Elite One championship.

This has resulted in just seven clean sheets, and with just six games to go, Eding Sport will need to put more concentration on the backline not to concede more goals and continue to win games if they nurse any hopes of staying in the Elite championship.


Avion Academy Douala

Given that the Douala based club have propped up the bottom of the table for some time now, it’s no surprise that Avion Academy desperation and willingness to battle has also seen them fall to the bottom of the table

You might have expected more from a team that was top at the league table in the middle of the first quarter of the championship to be the favorite for the league title, but their concession of 34 goals makes them the third most leaky backline in the Elite One Championship.

The current form table also suggests that they are on a downward curve, having gone five matches without a win and just two clean sheets in 11 games to leave them firmly rooted in that too.

With just nine wins and 13 defeats in 28 games, Avion Academy has it all to do if they are to escape the red zone with six games left to turn it around. With these facts and figures, sees them as the third-worst defense in the championship this season

Only three teams have conceded more shots than Panthere sportive of Nde this term as they somehow managed to claim a relatively impressive 8 clean sheets despite showing obvious signs of a porous defense for most of the season.

The Nzuimatos have also conceded three goals or more on three occasions, their 1-3 defeat at Yong Sport Academy in early March a particularly low point for the Nzuimatos.

With Fovu Club, Colombe FC, Feutchue FC, UMS Loum, Canon Sportive, and AS Fortuna to come in their remaining six games, it is difficult to see how they are going to improve on their current form which has seen them pick up just 12 points out of 30 in their last 10 games, which included costly defeats to relegation rivals Dragon of Yaounde and Avion Academy.

The new head coach has led his sides to commendable draws against Apejes of Mfou, PWD Bamenda, Bamboutos FC Mbouda and Avion Academy since arriving in January, but their failure to keep it tight at the back and close out games means they have only seven wins to their name, to tie with Dragon of Yaounde for the least in the division. With all these facts and figures, again rate them to be the fourth team with the worst defense this season

For a team so high up the table and under the usually shrewd and thrifty stewardship of Ndongo Ema, it is surprising to learn that Apejes of Mfou have conceded three or more goals 4 times this season.

However, the 11th placed Mfou club has managed to keep an impressive 7 clean sheets en route to 8 wins and 13 draws to leave them partially well placed to survive the drop with just six games remaining.

Goalkeeper Junior Dande and center-back Abel Grace Mkani have played more games than anyone this year, but it is the lack of quality and consistent reinforcements that have been Apejes undoing in defense thus far.

And although not yet safe from the trap door into the Elite Two Championship, their current form suggests they can get the necessary points to achieve safety with six games still to rates Apejes Mfou as the fifth team with the worst defense this season.

PWD Bamenda could be stripped off its title of Champion of Cameroon- Learn how!

PWD of Bamenda who were crowned champions of Cameroon of the 2019/2020 football season after FECAFOOT called an end to the football season because of the coronavirus pandemic now risk loosing their crown because of an adjacent conflict.



The “Abakwa boys” who are actively preparing for their premiere at the upcoming CAF Champions League might see their dreams evaporate in thin air because of an adjacent conflict between Cameroon’s FA, FECAFOOT and it’s suspended Professional football League body LFPC.

The conflict between these two entities didn’t find a local solution and the matter was carried by the LFPC to the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) with the following demands:to challenge its suspension pronounced by the federation on August 22, 2019, to cancel the professional championships season 2019-2020 organized by the Technical Transitory Committee (CTT) of FECAFOOT and to rehabilitate General Pierre Semengue, president of the LFPC.

Background History

The LFPC was indefinitely suspended by FECAFOOT which created a Technical Transitory Committee (CTT) to run the 2019/2020 football season.
General Pierre Semengue at the helm of the LFPC contested this suspension, taking the case to FECAFOOT’s appeals committee that gave a deaf ear. On January 29, 2020, Chamber of Conciliation and Arbitration of Cameroon’s national Olympic Committee issued a report of non-conciliation and the LFPC carried its case to the CAS.

The LFPC has paid processing fee of 14 million FCFA at the CAS and the latter had demanded FECAFOOT to provide its defence memo the latest on June 1st 2020. CAS has appointed a single judge, Professor Pascal Pichonnaz to arbitrate in this case between FECAFOOT and the LFPC.

The Stakes

In case the LFPC wins, the 2019-2020 season will be purely and simply cancelled and the LFPC and its president will be rehabilitated. This implies that PWD of Bamenda’s title of champion of Cameroon might loose its crown. Such a decision in the prevailing socio-political environment might create animosity in the minds of many.
Government through the Ministry of Sports and physical education should take the bull by the horn and bring a rapid solution to this conflict between these two football entities that has been existing for a couple of years now.

The decision of the CAS is being awaited in the upcoming days.
