League Cup Semi-finals/COSAP 0 - 3 ASEC Mimosas :

ASEC joins Bassam in final

Yesterday Evening, at Treichville Sports Park, as part of the semi-finals of the League Cup, ASEC Mimosas eliminated (3-0) the friendly formation of COSAP (L2) and joined in the final USC Bassam, winner (1-0) of Lys Sassandra.

The young team of COSAP made a good impression in front of a heavily revamped team of ASEC Mimosas whose coach Julien CHEVALIER rotated the roster to give game time to some players who do not have or who have very little. The game was very lively. Both teams wanted it. But it was ASEC Mimosas that carried the danger more constantly in the COSAP camp.

From the 45th minute, the efforts of the Mimosas will be rewarded when the young striker DIAKITÉ Ousmane, receiving a ball in the axis of the opposing penalty area following a poor dismissal of a defender, opened the scoring with a powerful resumption of volley. This achievement, far from knocking out the players of the COSAP whips them in their pride and they redouble their combativeness to try to equalize. But it was ASEC Mimosas who, thanks to good technical, tactical and high level of determination, aggravated the scoring by scoring a second goal thanks to young striker ZEZE Serge Eric (54′). The Mimosas will close the debate by scoring a third goal by COULIBALY Tiémoko (74′).

The Mimosas join USC Bassam (League 1) who eliminated Lys Sassandra (League 2) in the first semi-final played moments earlier in the same arena of Treichville Sports Park.
