  • Fovu will be out to add to their 2001 Super Cup win
  • Cotonsport of Garoua are after their first Super Cup title
  • Fovu won the Cup of Cameroon last week while Cotonsport are holders of the MTN Elite One title 
  • Coton are playing the Super cup for the second season running 
  • Both sides clash at the Bepanda Omnisport stadium in search of the next winner of the trophy Bamboutos FC won last year 

Cotonsport of Garoua and Fovu of Baham players will walk into the Reunification stadium in Douala this Friday with hopes of inking their name in history as both sides share the platform for the first time in their illustrious football journey.

Cotonsport, winners of the Cameroon top-flight championship in the past three seasons is hoping to right the wrongs of the past and win the Cameroon Super Cup after a number of failed attempts.

Coach Daniel Luc Breard’s team will be on a mission to prevent Fovu from adding to their 2001 Super Cup win after rejuvenate what has already been a bad start to the season – from the day they were eliminated by AS Real Bamako in the first preliminary round of the CAF Champions League.

The 18-time Elite One winners clash with the buoyant Fovu side that saw-off PWD of Bamenda last Sunday to clinch their third Cup of Cameroon third – first in 13 years.

Ndoumbe Bosso’s Fovu could win the second trophy within seven days if they have more to offer than bookmakers favourites Coton.

Both clubs noted for producing better sweet moments for their fans over the years know the contest doubles as a test of their credentials ahead of the new season.

While Super Cup matches have sometimes been a place where coaches try new options and give opportunities to players trying to break into the first team, there are indications that this will be far from that especially as both sides have traveled to Douala with their best squads.

The battle of coaches and beyond

Sunday’s Super Cup match is expected to produce the heir to the throne Bamboutos FC outsmarted Cotonsport to earn the bragging rights as the ‘King of kings’.

Besides being a meeting of two clubs, the game can also be seen as a contest between two coaches.

Ndoumbe Bosso, who won his third Cup of Cameroon trophy in his sixth appearance in the final should have a special motivation for this one. He was coach of Cotonsport between 2018-19.

Unfortunately, Sango as he is popularly known was bundled out of Garoua for failing to deliver – in all fairness he didn’t get enough time to prove his worth. However, Sango will meet his former employer hoping to get a pinch of their flesh.

Besides Sango, Togolese midfielder, Cofie Madje Koudeka didn’t get enough to trust at Coton, he was forced to switch to Fovu, where he won the Cup of Cameroon trophy, adding to the League he won during his days at Coton.

If both sides play to their full strength, this ga could turn out to be a good show for diehards of both clubs and even neutrals who turn up.

FECAFOOT has announced sales venues and prices of match tickets selling at 2000 FCFA and 5000 FCFA at the different spots.

The 39K facility in the heart of Douala is the melting point for the football strength from the North and West Regions of Cameroon they look to get a positive result as the kicker of the long campaign.
