Daring Club Motema Pembe put on two master class performances to reignite their Linafoot league campaign, placing the disappointment of exiting the CAF Confederations Cup on the back burner.
DCMP defeated Dauphins Noris 2-1 on Thursday 09 December, and then followed that showing with a comprehensive 2-0 win over Renaissance on Sunday 12 December. This was exactly what the doctor ordered following a heartbreaking loss in the CAF Confed Cup.
The two wins must have lifted the team’s spirits because the mood in the camp is at an all-time high. It is always good to see your team bounce back to winning ways, and the Immaculates have done their fans proud.
The six points from last week took DCMP’s tally to 17 points; they are currently in fifth place on the table, which is excellent when you put into perspective the events of the last month. Juggling two competitions takes a toll on a team; it drains them physically and emotionally. DCMP has shown that they have managed to rise above the adversity of playing in the league and continental competition. Now they can place their full attention on their league campaign.
One thing that will be exciting for the DCMP fans is how their team will play this season. Their style of play was impressive against Dauphins Noris and Renaissance. DCMP play on the front foot, they attack with high energy, and when they lose the ball, they are quick to press the opposition and win the ball.
This kind of style is used by some of the best teams in the world, and for DCMP to adopt it means they are in tune with modern-day football. How the team progresses with the heavy metal style of football developed by the Germans will be something to keep an eye on.
On Sunday 19 December, DCMP will face a tough opponent in Maniema Union, who are in fourth on the table. They have not played for some time; their last game was in the CAF Confed Cup when they lost to Pyramids FC at the beginning of December.
DCMP will approach this encounter with caution, they will want to come back with a point, and this game has a prospect of a 1-1 draw. The teams will be evenly matched.
