The ASEC Mimosas receives the WAC, this Saturday, June 17, starting at 18:00, at the Bouaké Peace Stadium, on behalf of the 25th and penultimate day of Ligue 1. A victory for the mimosas will be synonymous with obtaining the 25th title of champion of Ivory Coast, 7 years after the last.
Undoubtedly the most important match of the mimosas season, the clash at the summit ASEC Mimosas – Williamsville Athletic Club (WAC) from the penultimate day of Ligue 1 will hold all the attentions. A match considered the “final” of this league 1, with the main issue, the chair of the leader. On the one hand, the ASEC Mimosas (42 pts + 14) is the 25th title of its history, seven years after the last. A win for it will be synonymous with acquiring the title, regardless of the outcome of the last day’s matches. On the other side, the WAC (41 pts + 13), which rose from the simple ambition of maintaining the title, will delight the leader chair in case of victory with two points on the ASEC Mimosas. And then we’ll wait for the 26th day to know the champion.
So watch out for the Williamsville wasps. An enthusiastic youth who knows that she has nothing to lose. Coach Aby Yao and his foals play the “bonus”. They are very close to carrying out a resounding feat and are determined to give everything to get into the history of the League 1.
It’s a tough meeting. Stake. After seven years of silence, the ASEC Mimosas is more than ever a step ahead of its challenge. The most titled Club in Ivory Coast is always hungry for headlines. He knows that the end of a thing is better than its beginning. Even the elimination in the 8th final of the National Cup, last weekend, cannot and should not start his morale. With the return of his international Burkina Aristide Bance andKOFFI KOUAKOU Hervé, the yellow and black will put the package to win this title that really holds them to heart. The WAC will be dealing with a very determined team of the ASEC Mimosas who has already beaten it twice this season, on the 12th day of Ligue 1 (2 – 1), then in last of the League Cup finals. Is it not said that there are never two without three?
