Due to a lack of success, ASEC Mimosas lost (0-1) its late match of the 13th day of Ligue 1 against FC San Pedro, last Monday afternoon, at the Treichville Sports Park. The Yellow and Black thus miss the opportunity to finish Champions of the mid-season.
It’s the kind of game that enrages, frustrates and gives insomnia when you think about it. Making the game, wet the jersey, as would say, dominate territorially the opponent and finally lose on the smallest mark has something to hurt very badly. This is what happened to ASEC Mimosas, Monday, January 6, 2020, against the formation of FC San Pedro who was very realistic on one of its few offensives by managing to open the scoring in the 9th minute thanks to Amède Tidiane DIOMANDÉ who saw his center surprise e the goalkeeper mimosas, BAMBA Aboubacar. After this goal, the strategy of the Petrucians was to defend well. This succeeded them until the break because despite the territorial domination of the Mimosas, they will not be able to find the fault in the dense defensive curtain of San Pedro.
The second period is the same as the first. ASEC Mimosas approaches it with the firm will to turn the tide. The Yellow and Black push, accelerate, vary their game, attack from all sides. The Petrucians are bending, but they’re holding on. The entries of the young DIAKITÉ Oumar, KONATÉ Karim and ZUNON Kipré respectively in places and places of OUATTARA Kipari Mamadou, DION Sédé Junior and ZÉZÉ Serge Eric give tone to the interplay and the attack of the Mimosas. FC San Pedro is difficult, but does not give in and finally wins (0-1).
This underperformance shattered ASEC Mimosas’ dream of becoming the leader’s chair midway through Ligue 1. For in the event of a victory, Julien CHEVALIER’s group would have been mid-season champion thanks to a better differential goal. But there are still 13 more days to negotiate well. Because it’s the arrival that counts.
