23rd Day of Ligue 1: SOA-ASEC Mimosas :

Take another step towards the title

A week after his precious victory of the 22nd day in Bouaké in the face of the eternal rival, the team of the ASEC Mimosas will find the Stade Robert Champroux de Marcory to confront the SOA, on Sunday, May 28th, from 18:00, on behalf of the 23rd day of Ligue 1. It will be a tough match for the yellow and black against the soldiers who had beaten them (0-1) at the game go, on the 10th day.


“These last matches are finals for us,” continues to repeat the coach of the ASEC Mimosas. And that of the 23rd day of Ligue 1, against the SOA will be one. At 4 days of the end of the National League Championship 1 and under the constant threat of the WAC, its dolphin, the ASEC Mimosas has an obligation to win against the SOA to reinforce its place as leader.


Against the solid training of the military who knows how to sublimate against the ASEC Mimosas, the match will not be of any rest for Captain KOUTOUAN Akassou and his teammates. The yellow and black will have to show overtaking and concentrating to take over the soldiers who, at the match go, had beaten them (0 – 1).


The ASEC Mimosas is very often struggling with the SOA. The proof is made on their last 5 confrontations ended with a win for each of the two formations against 3 draws.


The victory of the Mimos in front of the Aiglons, during the derby last Saturday, could increase the confidence of the yellow and black in this last straight line of the championship.


The Mimos are resolutely launched in the title race, with players like TA BI Willy Braciano or OUATTARA Issouf, who refind their sensations alongside the tandem POE Jean Morel-Aristide BANCE already very prominent. Driven by their many audiences, the Mimos will wet the jersey to get victorious from this duel against the military.
