Champion before term (at the end of the 20th day), the ASEC Mimosas celebrates its 26th title in Gagnoa, facing the sporting Club, Sunday, May 3, at 3.30 pm, on the 26th and last day of Ligue 1. A match-show for the Mimosas unlike the Gagnolais who play the last place for the next CAF Champions League.
1st with 63 points and a goal average of + 36, the ASEC Mimosas moves to Gagnoa with the aim of closing the championship in all beauty. Without any pressure, coach AMANI Yao and his protégés will only be offered a 21st win to carry their points counter at 66. In the absence of the wounded and some executives who have come to be added COULIBALY Wonlo and SANOGO Issa (suspended), it will still be the opportunity for the technical staff to continue its turn-over and give more time to play at its bench. A bench that we know is quite consistent with the outbreak of young players such as Diabate Ibrahim Yalatif and LOUÉ Bayéré who have shown all the colors to the Séwékés, during the 25th day in San Pedro.
In a delicate position, the training of the sporting Club (2nd, 41 points, + 15) welcomes the ASEC Mimosas with a great willingness to win to get his revenge on the team that had beaten her to the match Go (3 – 2), but mostly to offer the second place Qualifier of the next CAF Champions League. In the last straight line of this fight, SC Gagnoa must win, at the risk of being delighted by FC San Pedro (3rd, 40 points, + 4) or Africa Sport (4th, 39 points, + 9).
For sure, a fierce opposition will wait for the ASEC mimosas in Gagnoa on this last day, but as during their difficult trip to San Pedro last Sunday, the Mimosas are able to fight to finish on a good note and party with the Shareholders who will make numerous trips to the Stade Victor Biaka BODA de Gagnoa.
