19th Day of Ligue 1: RC Abidjan – ASEC Mimosas :

Chain with victory

Having recovered in the direction of the march after his victory (2-3) against the AFAD, last Sunday, on the 18th day of Ligue 1, ASEC Mimosas tackles the Racing Club of Abidjan, Saturday 2 March 2019, at 18h, at Stade Robert Champroux, as part of the 19th day for C Onfirmer the new victorious momentum taken in this last straight line of the Ligue 1.

Context

More than 8 days to play and another 24 points to take before the end of the championship. The ASEC Mimosas (5e; 27 points; + 4) marks a 12-point lag on the current leader, the SOA (39 points; + 12), 6 points on FC San Pedro (2nd; 33 points; + 11), 5 points on the Racing Club of Abidjan (3rd; 32 points; + 10), his opponent of the 19th day and 1 Only point on Bouaké FC (4th; 28 points; + 2).

Issues

The ASEC Mimosas has, again, an opportunity to go back one ranking. It would make a good deal in the event of a win, rising to the 4th place, if Bouaké FC fails to impose itself on the move against the SOA or by reducing the gap of points with the leader if the opposite happened. For its part, the Racing Club of Abidjan watches the Place du Dauphin while hoping for a counter-performance of FC San Pedro which receives the ASI of Abengourou, at Stade Auguste Denise

The FORCES in the presence

The morale boosted by the victory against the AFAD, the Mimos were resolutely launched in the last corner of the Ligue 1. The new watchword for AMANI Yao and his players is to chain the victories to the podium and even to occupy the leader’s chair. The victory is therefore imperative for the ASEC Mimosas in order to take over this promoted who had surprised him (0 – 1) on the go, at the Stade Félix Houphouët-Boigny, on the 6th day late and to continue his ascent in the ranking. With a scorer found (TOURÉ Amed, author of a hat-trick against the AFAD) and a BAGATÉ salif of the great days, the ASEC Mimosas regains its verve. But she will have to be very wary of this surprising formation of the Racing Club of Abidjan which has lost since the 14th day of Ligue 1 when he tilted (1 – 0) in front of FC San Pedro.
