LIGUE 1 12e journée/ASEC Mimosas – Williamsville AC :

Renewing with victory

HISTORY

The Williamsville Atlhetic Club (WAC) has been a sensation in the previous three seasons. But this 4th in the Ivorian Ligue 1 hardly smiles at him. After 11 days, Williamsville’s team is in last place in the standings (14th; 5 points, 5 draws, 6 losses, 9 goals scored against 16 conceded and a goal differential -7). Should we see this as a breathlessness after three seasons full of promise? ASEC Mimosas, meanwhile, suffered two consecutive defeats against ASI abengourou (2-0; 10th day), then against its eternal rival, Africa Sports of Abidjan (1-0; 11th day), but remains on the podium (3rd; 18 points; 6; 13 goals scored against 7 cashed in).

THE ENJEU

The objective for ASEC Mimosas is to win back the title of Champion of Côte d’Ivoire. To do this, he must regain the victory against the red lantern and improve his position in the leading pack. The Williamsville AC, which is gradually drowning, is fighting for its survival in the elite. Every game is a hope for this team that they are trying to hold on to in order to get out of the relegation zone. Both teams will play their game to try to snatch the points of the match and give themselves a breath of fresh air.

THE FORCES INVOLVED

ASEC Mimosas plays well and reconciles its audience with the beautiful football that made its legend and popularity. But her results are in tatters because she suffers at times from an efficiency failure in attack. The Mimosas made another good impression on the 11th day against Africa Sports. Unfortunately, they lost (1-0) for the same reason. Will they finally find the success that has eluded them for 2 days to confirm their status as favorites in front of the red lantern? Julien CHEVALIER’s group will have to be wary of the WAC, which will fight with great energy to grab points and regain morale for the rest of the competition. We can be sure of one thing, there will be a match between the 3rd and the last of the standings. ASEC Mimosas will need its many supporters to win and win again at the Robert Champroux Stadium in Marcory on Sunday.
