The victory record in Ligue 1 of the ASEC Mimosas will stop at 16. The fault of the SOA, the Red Lantern of the ranking which forced him to the match (1 – 1), this afternoon, at the Felicia, during the late game of the 17th day.
In this encounter between the two extremes of League 1, the ASEC Mimosas sits its domination as soon as the encounter begins. The Mimos are the headquarters of the military camp. Paradoxically, it is the SOA that obtains the first opportunity of the match, in the 6th MN, on a long ball of Kay Yao, in the back of the defense, for his teammate DIANE Alfa Mamadou who misses the inevitable against CISSE Abdoul Karim, goalkeeper Mimosas. The ASEC Mimosas has the monopoly of the ball, but the SOA is dangerous, every time it starts a counterattack. The ASEC Mimosas, in turn, obtains its very first goal, at the 24th MN, on a centre of COULIBALY Zana for the cross-head of Toure Amed which finds the left amount of Kaur Serginho before shaving the line of goal and exit. It was only part-time since 10 minutes later, the same Amed tour takes advantage of a centre of Badie Gbagnon on a free kick to place its head and defeat the goalkeeper of the SOA (1 – 0; 34 ‘). The ASEC Mimosas logically opens the score in a match it dominates. The SOA does not admit to being beaten and plays artfully to get the equalizer during the additional time of the first part, on a realization of his attacker, Chung (1 – 1; 45 ‘ + 1). Both teams join the locker room on this parity score.
The ASEC Mimosas begins the second period with a change in its ranks. Samake Gaoussou gives way to Ahmadi Alex Christian. A little more confident, the SOA comes out of its trenching to try to take advantage of the score. The game loses momentum and the goal opportunities are scarce. The entrance of Dixit Hamed in lieu of DAO Mohamed gives a little more tone to the team mimosas. The offensive actions mimosas are chained, but without success. At 10 minutes from the end, the coach AMANI Yao entered, under the acclaim of the public of the Felicia, the midfielder NOUGBELE Christian, away from the terrain for almost a year. He replaces Salah Issa to push these teammates in search of the goal of victory. The end of the very rhythmic match. By precipitation the goal opportunities are doomed to failure.
The ASEC Mimosas concedes the draw (1 – 1) to the SOA and sees its series of victories interrupting. The yellow and black Club still remains undefeated in this Ligue 1 with another 18-game invincibility series. Figures that keeps the group in a beautiful state of mind before moving to Algeria to battle with the CR Belouizdad, Tuesday, April 17, from 4pm, during the return match of the Confederation Cup.
