The classification table published on the Fecafoot website shows clearly the clubs with the porous attacks or leaky attacks with just 6 playing days to go.
1.PANTHERE SPORTIVE DU NDE
After 28 games in the championship, The club can only be proud of just 18 goals scored with an average of 0.64 per game which is the lowest comparing it with the other clubs in the League. This probably explains why no player (Attacker) of the club is among the first 22 top scorers this far and only the goalkeeper of the club was selected in the preselected list in preparation for the Total African Nation Championship (CHAN). According to the goalkeeper of Panthere Sportive of Nde Anye Derrick Fru told Dream FM reporters in Bamenda after their nil draws on the 11th December 2019 in match day 12 “that the club comes from a Region were 7 of Cameroon top-flight clubs come from and therefore makes it difficult for them to get the best with the limited resources they have”. That seems to be true because the club finds itself in the 15th position which is the last among the 7 clubs in that Region. With just 6 games to the end of the championship, the coach and the administration will need to effectuate their attackers and bring out the best from them for more goals to be scored and win a better position to scare off the relegation zone.
2.TONNERRE KALARA CLUB
With a team nursing the ambition of bringing back the glory days, one will not belive that Tonnerre Kalara Club that was performant in the first round of the championship now sees themselves battling to escape the relegation zone. With 28 games gone into the championship, The club can only be proud of just 19 goals scored with Gregoire Nkama scoring 7 goals out of the 19, Meaning the rest of his Teammates have scored just 12 goals amongst them. A possible explanation could be that the club’s general performance this season has not been the best as they find themselves at the 17th spot with 8 wins in 28 games. Others in their viewpoint blame the inhouse battle amongst the leaders which has affected the performance of the players and lack of resources to manage the players. As historic as the team with a high portfolio in Cameroon football, it will be disappointing if the club is relegated back to the Elite two championship. With six playing days to the end of the championship, Team spirit and back to winning ways will be a better solution to escape the relegation zone.
3.UMS OF LOUM
USM of Loum has been one of the best in the championship in the last four years since its promotion in the top flight championship (Elite One) with two league titles and a prestigious cup of Cameroon. But surprisingly this season, the club has battled with form and could only find themselves among the porous attacking teams in the championship this far as they occupy the 9th spot. They have only managed to score 23 goals after 28 games in their account the worst goal scoring records since their demise in the Elite One and are only above Panthere Sportive and Tonnerre Kalara Club but the club can be proud of the best defense in the championship conceding just 19 goals, Although no player for the club makes the preselected list in preparation for the CHAN. A possible explanation for their poor attacking performances could be their system of play (Defensive), which doesn’t give room for too many goals and lack of players benefits have seen the team performance dropped drastically. With only six games to the end of the league, UMS Loum will need to improve their goal scoring ability to stay at the middle of the league table because their safety from relegation will depend on the goals they score as just 5 points separate them from relegation fighters Panthere Sportive of Nde and Avion Academy.
4. AVION ACADEMY FC
Avion Acadamy this season has been one of the teams competing for the league title this season with their brilliant performances during the first round of the championship. But with nothing to write home about, the second round of the championship has become a complicated one for Avion Academy with five outings as of January without a victory, Avion Academy moves from a comfortable fourth position and now plying their trade in the relegation zone. Only 24 goals have been scored with 28 games gone and are only higher than Pantherre Sportive of Nde, Tonnerre Kalara Club and UMS of Loum possibly because Mfeque Rodrigue has scored 8 goals out of the 24. Their general performance in the second round has not been the best. They have lost 13 games and draw 6 out of the 28 games played. A possible explanation for their poor attacking performance could be their poor defensive nature (with 34 goals conceded) which gives less stability in the team. All hopes are not lost for the team as just 5points separates them from 9th place UMS of Loum. Mfeque Rodrique will need to pair with another swift attacker for more goals if they nurse any hope of escaping the relegation zone.
5. DRAGON OF YAOUNDE.
With Dragon Of Yaounde already doomed for relegation at the 18th position with just 28points from 28game making an average of 1point per game but the club seems to have a better-attacking performance than Pantherre Sportive Of Nde, Tonnerre Kalara Club, UMS of Loum and Avion Academy. With 28 games gone, the club has 25 goals in their account. A possible reason why they find themselves among the worst attacking teams in the championship this far could be their generally poor performance in all compartment, they have lowest wins (7 wins), the highest lost games (14 lost games), conceded the highest amount of goals (43 goals conceded) and have the highest goal difference (-18). It will take a miracle for Dragon Of Yaounde to survive relegation and this will only be possible with 6wins without a defeat “IF NOT WHY NOT”

CAF Qualifiers: A busy 12 Months for Cameroon’s Indomitable Lions (November 2020 to November 2021).
The indomitable of Cameroon will face a busy twelve months in both the AFCON and world cup qualifiers to begin from November 2020 to November 2021.
This comes after CAF and FIFA had to revise the two competitions in light of the Coronavirus pandemic outbreak which halted many sporting activities in the continent.
Cameroon like any other country in Africa, will be involved in both the AFCON and world cup qualifiers to begin in November 2020 to November 2021.
Cameroon’s Indomitable lions resume their AFCON qualifiers this November 2020, with a double header against Mozambique in their 3rd & 4th round matches while, in March next year, Antonio Conceicao’s charges will play their 5th and 6th round matches against Cape Verde islands and Rwanda respectively.
Though Cameroon have qualified automatically as host, the lions are engaged in the qualifiers so as to gain more game time.
With the AFCON qualifiers not a serious business per say, the world cup qualifiers will be the most difficult adventure for coach Antonio Conceicao as the Indomitable Lions will have to play Mozambique, Malawi and one of Africa’s best representatives at the world cup in recent times “the Elephants” of Ivory coast in the world cup qualifiers to begin in May 2021.
It should be noted that, the top teams of each of the groups will qualify for the play offs which have been scheduled for November 2021.
With the absence of the Indomitable Lions in Russia 2018, football lovers in Cameroon are hoping that Antonio Conceicao will be the man to take Cameroon to the promise land.
