It’s done! Even before the end of the championship, the ASEC Mimosas has just won its 25th title of Ivory Coast champion acquired tonight at the Peace Stadium of Bouaké, after its victory (1-0) on the WAC, at the 25th and before the last day of Ligue 1.
Certainly tense by the stakes, both teams are timidly starting the meeting. The technical gestures are narrow and the game is slow to pack despite some vague of the two camps. Tenure for this meeting, but very just physically, Ahmadi Alex is forced to give up his place to Dre Fabius after half an hour of play. It is logically that the half-time is whistled on the null and Blank score (0 – 0).
The second period is much more lively with a real will of both teams to quickly make the difference. The game is bitter and very contested. The offensives are chained without the real opportunities. But in the 78th mn, Ta bi Willy Braciano, one of the most prominent players of the ASEC Mimosas makes a breakthrough followed by a striking power that is stopped by the hands of a WAC defender. Without hesitation, the referee whistles the indisputable penalty. Without questioning, Aristide Banc transformed the stopped kick of a power strike to give the advantage to the ASEC Mimosas (1 – 0; 79 mn). The WAC is pushed to revolt. But helpless, he falls into the excitement. His attacker Yao Kaya was expelled after a voluntary coup given to Dre Fabius. ASEC Mimosas manages its advantage well until the referee’s final whistle.
With 4 points in advance on the Wasps of Williamsville and a day of the end of the championship, the coach Thierrye Santos and his players won the 25th title of champion of the ASEC Mimosas, seven years after the 24th. The 26th day against ASI, next weekend will be a gala match, a game to party.
