12th Late Day: USC Bassam 2 – 0 ASEC Mimosas :

An unexpected defeat

Against all odds, the ASEC Mimosas lost (2 – 0) His match against USC Bassam this afternoon at the Robert Champroux Stadium as part of the 12th late League day.

The glorious uncertainty of football still recalled to the audience present at the Robert Champroux Stadium this afternoon, to the great dismay of the shareholders who hoped to see their team win and extend its beautiful series of victories to 4 games after those of the 10th , 11th and 13th days. But against all odds, she lost (2-0) that of the 12th day overdue in the face of a formation of USC Bassam which she dominated.
The lack of success of the Mimosas…

The coach Mimosas, AMANI Yao Lambert César wanted to turn his workforce by lining Badie Gbagnon Ahmad, Don Yaya, rented Bayéré Junior, TAMON Brice Doyle and Comaa Oumar Farouk who do not have enough time to play. Faced with a highly motivated, combative and aggressive formation of the islanders, the Mimosas evolved as usual to win. In the first half, they created a net goal opportunity that rented Bayéré Junior could not exploit after avoiding the release of goalkeeper Bassamois, Kone Mamadou (32 ‘). In the second period, the same rented Bayéré, enjoying a beautiful retreat from Ahmadi Alex, will fail on the last rampart of the Islanders (50 ‘). The same Ahmadi, very verve on its right side, will again offer a caviar to TAMON Brice Doyle on another withdrawal. But the latter will not be unable to score (54 ‘). Decidedly, the success had turned its back on the players of Coach AMANI Yao this afternoon.
… And the realism of Bassamois

Dominating is not winning and when you dominate without scoring, you are never immune to opposing assassins goals. And that’s what happened. While the ASEC Mimosas was growing to mark, USC Bassam, against all odds, was going to take advantage of a flash counter-attack to open the mark thanks to his attacker SANGARÉm salmon (67 ‘). The entries in the game of the attackers Mimosas GONAZO BI Ya Thomas (60 ‘) and YAO Kaya Alphonse (63 ‘) allow the Champions of Ivory Coast to accentuate the pressure on the Bassamois. But the “yellow and black” will not find the way of the nets. On the contrary, the islanders will still be very realistic by taking advantage of another counter-attack to mark their second goal by Kone Abdoulaye (65 ‘). The replacement of midfielder Don Yaya by DAO Mohamed Lamine (69 ‘) allows the ASEC Mimosas to control more the game and the game, but the USC Bassamois holds good and wins the game.
