Prior to his decisive match of the 25th day of Ligue 1 against the WAC, ASEC Mimosas will play the final last of the National Cup against FC San Pedro on Monday, June 12th, from 3 p.m., at the Treichville Sports Park. An equally important match for the yellow and black that aspire to the double national Cup – Ligue 1.
On the way to the quarterfinals of the ASEC Mimosas stands the FC San Pedro. A well-known formation of the yellow and black team that has already faced twice, this season, in Ligue 1. With a win each on the same score from 1 goal to 0, this third opposition looks like a beautiful one. An important meeting that will be worth the survival of one or the other in national cup. If the qualification for the final last against the formation of the Stella Club she Beat (5 – 2), was acquired without great suspense, that of these quarterfinals will be much more difficult in the face of this promoted who will have no complex against the giant ASEC Mimosas that she has already beaten in the championship. In the image of the WAC, the other promoted that makes a sensation in Ligue 1, FC San Pedro dreams of winning the national Cup. After releasing the JCAT (1 – 0), during the final 16th, the team of the road crew is ready to republish its feat of the 20th day of Ligue 1 in front of the ASEC Mimosas.
The surprise defeat (0 – 1) conceded in Ligue 1 against the Stade Abidjan, last Saturday is not made to reassure the shareholders. But the ASEC Mimosas knows the big challenges. It has the opportunity to redeem itself in reviving with the victory against FC San Pedro. A victory to take a step closer to Dame Coupe, but also to cheer up the group before facing the WAC, in the decisive match of the fight for the title of Champion, on the 25th day of Ligue 1.
The ASEC Mimosas would play this game without its two internationals Burkina KOFFI Kouakou Hervé and Aristide Bance, who went to join their national selection as part of the can 2019 playoffs. But, these absences will not have to pose any problems for coach TRAORE Siaka who only wants success for his team: “With all the opportunities we get, we only need a bit of success to win our matches,” he noted.
