Here are the 3major talking points from the game.
#1. AS Fortuna can rely on it’s solid defense
AS Fortuna is one of the few teams that has not conceded a single goal since the kickoff of the championship. The team can rely on a solid defence that has resisted the assaults of Bamboutos of Mbouda and today Stade Renard of melong. Goalkeeper Descharles Cherry Minko Mba has kept 2 clean sheets so far.
#2. Fortuna’s magic duo Vandelin Yves Eloundou & Thierry Akono Akono impact the front line
The former TKC forward who recently joined AS Fortuna is having good times playing up front paid up with today’s man of the Match, Alain Thierry Akono Akono. AS Fortuna’s attack line is a promising fast engine with the additional presence of Lionel Christian Ateba Mbida who is equally making his come back into the club after an unsuccessful European adventure.
#3. Stade Renard doomed on artificial pitches
The current Cameroon cup and super cup winners suffered their second defeat of the season on the artificial turf of the mbankomo stadium. The club holds a sorrowful record of poor performances when playing on an artificial turf.
