The 26th and final day of Ligue 1. A game without a real stake, on an unusual terrain, but a match to win anyway for the Mimosas to celebrate the 25th national title of the club
Without any pressure of result, the ASEC Mimosas, the champion of the 2017 season, will finish League 1 in front of the ASI Abengourou (11th; 29 points;-3) who got its hold, at the end of the 25th day. A simple match to fill in the formalities. The only issue could be to finish the season beautifully by a win for either team.
Although having experienced difficulties in securing its maintenance this season, the ASI Abengourou remains a very strong opponent for the ASEC Mimosas. Their confrontation has often resulted in zero matches or wins on narrow scores. The last one, played on the 13th day, saw the two teams separate on a blank score. This return match of the last day will be an opportunity for the yellow and black to improve their stats to be the only team to have won 13 wins, a ratio of a win both matches. And why not allow Aristide Bance, the current top scorer with 12 goals to improve his capital.
The essentials for the coach will be to: “Finish the season with a victory to give more colors to the feast”. For it will be for the whole Mimosas family to come and commune with their players 7 years after the penultimate national rite. A feast that could mark the beginning of a new era of mimosas domination.
