The ASEC Mimosas received its trophy of Champion of Cote d’ivoire 2018, this Sunday June 3, following the meeting of the 26th and last day of Ligue 1 which opposed the sporting Club. Despite the defeat (1-2), the Mimos enjoyed this 26th rite in a beautiful atmosphere carnival at the Stade Victor Besley BODA.
The players of the sporting Club have made a hedge of honor by putting bouquets of flowers to those of the ASEC Mimosas, champions of Cote d’ivoire, when they entered the field, just before the kickoff of this match of the 26th day and last day of Ligue 1.
With an unprecedented team of players who did not play much during the season, the ASEC Mimosas makes a very shy start unlike the SC Gagnoa which makes a very nice entrance. The pressure on the Mimosas defense proves to be paying as early as the 10th minute by the opening of the score. The goalscorer-Maison TOGUI Mel does not miss the opportunity offered and takes advantage of the previous work of a teammate to push the ball in the empty goal of BAMBA Abd (1 – 0; 10 mn). Pushed by a public acquired to his cause, the men of the Cheeser return to the charge, in the 22nd MN by the same TOGUI Mel who signs thus his doubled after a free kick quickly played on which the Mimos were surprised (2 – 0 , 22nd MN). This score loops the first part of the meeting.
The Mimos come back from the locker room with much better feelings. Changes are made with the successive entries of GLOUDOUEU Angel Baresi, Badie Gbagnon and Fonsinho. The players of AMANI Yao gradually regain control of the match and manage to reduce the mark to the 86th by Diabate Yalatif (2 – 1, 86th Mn). The Mimosa alarm clock is late. The SC Gagnoa thus carries (2 – 1) and ensures its place as dolphin of the ASEC Mimosas in the ranking. A place that allows him to accompany the ASEC Mimosas to the next CAF Champions League. Despite the defeat, the team Mimosas, champion since the 20th day, has been with the shareholders who came in great numbers after the reception of his trophy.
