Best Stars Academy vs EEMSA( BGS field, Buea-3pm)
Two of the regions representatives at the cup of Cameroon in 2019 will exchange soccer punches at the Bilingual Grammar school field in Buea. Best Stars Academy of Limbe are still to taste defeat this season, but most of their games this season have ended in draws. The only match they have won this season is a 6-0 win over Tiko United in the second round. In fact, they have had two draws in the league, two draws in the cup of Cameroon but won after post match penalties. Standing on their way is EEMSA who themselves have lost just one game all season and with a double over NQSA in the second and third rounds, the Academicians from Tiko might just end the unbeaten run of Best Stars on Saturday.

Cinyodev FA* vs Kumba Lakers (Tiko Town Green stadium, 1pm)
One of the representatives of the region at the cup of Cameroon in 2019, Cinyodev FA will be involved in a tricky game against Kumba Lakers at the Tiko Town Green stadium. Yes Cinyodev FA has the mastery of what it takes to qualify for the cup of Cameroon, but with little mastery of a certain Kumba Lakers side, this might give coach Oben Ntui sleepless nights to fine the winning formula.
Continental FA vs Options Sport Academy (Tiko Town Green stadium, 3pm)
Having lost to Best Stars Academy in the previous round, Continental FA were brought back into the competition as best losers, and have been handed another top draw in the final phase against a competitive Options Sport Academy side. The defeat against Best Stars was the first for the Gra Gra boys in over 13 months and will have to get back to winning ways this Sunday, but with Options Sport being one of the most outstanding sides of the new campaign, coach Eyongetta Bawak will also have some sleepless nights this time around.
Players To Watch
The academicians from Tiko have had the best attack so far with players like Bache Manfred, Martin Egbe, Obase Nanje and Mbikeng Nyenti are contributing factors to the offensive power of EEMSA, as they take on Best Stars Academy of Limbe.
With their unbeaten run in the calendar year still in tact, the boys of Oben Ntui have so far gone some rebirth ever since their 0-6 lost to Prisons of Buea back in December last year. Players like Graham Mbong, Motutu Junior, Ngale Tonga have been the players for Cinyodev FA and will have to give Kumba Lakers problems when they meet on Sunday.
Despite the defeat to Best Stars, Players like Robert Mboungka, Dieudonne Younyi, Ndive Njie, Alfred Agbor and Ako Tabe are players who can trouble any defense line in the region.
