Keeping your destiny in your hands

ASEC Mimosas receives USC Bassam, Sunday, April 28, 2019, at 3.30 pm, at Stade Félix HOUPHOUËT-BOIGNY, as part of the 25eet before the last day of Ligue 1. A very important match of the battle for the 3rd place of the podium. 

The context

The partial verdict of the Ligue 1 fell at the end of the 24th day. The SOA (1st; 52 points; + 16) is awarded the title of champion of Ivory Coast 2018 – 2019 with Dolphin, FC San Pedro (2nd; 44 points; + 14). On the other hand, the last place on the podium has still not been elected. The choice will have to be made between the ASEC Mimosas (3rd; 36 points; + 8), the Racing Club of Abidjan (4th; 36 points; + 6), the AFAD (5th; 34 points; + 1), or even Bouaké FC (6th; 33 points;-1). At the bottom of the table, Moossou FC (14th; 20 points;-22) already relegated is still waiting to know the team that will accompany him in Ligue 2. The fight for survival in Ligue 1 is now played between LYS Sassandra (13th; 23 points;-7), USC Bassam (12th; 28 points;-5) and AS tanda (11th; 28 points;-3).

The stake

In elbow-to-elbow with the Racing Club and the AFAD in the remote battle for the 3eplace, the ASEC Mimosas has practically no more right to error, especially after passing from little to downgrading, during the 24th day. The victory is more imperative than ever to maintain his advance.

 At the bottom of the table, at two points of maintenance and as a security measure, USC Bassam would like to relive the game at the 12th day, when it won (2 – 0), at the Stade Robert CHAMPROUX. 

THE FORCES in Presence

Terribly in lack of success against Moossou FC, during the previous day, ASEC Mimosas will have, if necessary, to ward off the fate against USC Bassam to reap the points of victory and jealously keep his 3rd place in the standings. The concentration is set to Sol Beni for coach AMANI Yaoet his players who, this time, benefited from the whole week between two games. Faced with the threat of direct pursuers, the TOURÉ AMED, BAGATÉ Salif, TAPSOBA Abdul Fessalet their teammates will have to take out the big game against this team of USC Bassam who, in his last 5 games, has casted only 4 goals, proof of his defensive solidity.
