Without really forcing his talent, the ASEC Mimosas imposed itself (2-0) at the ASI of Abengurou, this afternoon, at the Stade Félix HOUPHOUËT-BOIGNY, in the late game counting for the 15th day of Ligue 1. A doubly important result for the ASEC Mimosas which goes up a notch in the standings and takes a good breath of air before the reception of Mamelodi Sundowns.
The ASEC Mimosas makes an extraordinary start to the game by opening the score of 40 seconds only after the kickoff of the meeting. The goal is the work of Devine Daouda, at the reception of a beautiful retreat from the Ganga Sadi, to sign his return in the group in the Best of ways (1 – 0). The Mimos take advantage too early and save their efforts to carry out new offensives. What benefits and encourages the princes of the Indenié to take the game to their account and to obtain real opportunities like that of the 22nd Mn, missed by his forward Ismael SY savanna, alone in front of goalkeeper CISSÉ Abdoul Karim. The ASEC Mimosas nevertheless manages its advantage until the break.
The ASI of Abengourou comes back from the locker room with a fierce desire to delay, the Mimos are jostled but are not worried. Better, on a counter-attack, at the 51st Mn, they doubled the setting by TOURÉ Amed (the Simba), at the reception of a beautiful centre of OUATTARA Kalpi (2 – 0). The ASEC Mimosas quietly manages his match but the buckle on a black note, the red card attributed to MALO Patrick for challenging an unjustified yellow card. But the Mimos succeed the essential that was to win to regain confidence before the reception of Mamelodi Sundowns, Tuesday, February 12th, during the important game of the 4th day of the group stage of the Champions League.
