Ligue 1 – (22nd day): Jaraaf-Teungueth FC, the decisive turn for the title

Ligue 1 opens this weekend on the 22nd day with the attraction of the duel at the top between leader Teungueth (43 pts) and his runner-up Jaraaf (2nd, 36 pts). With four days to go, the two teams are taking a decisive turn in the race towards the title. This day is crucial both in the middle and at the bottom of the table where the fight to maintain will still rage.

Well launched with 7 lengths ahead of its runner-up, Jaraaf, the Teungueth FC team begins this weekend a decisive turn towards the title of champion. The Rufisquois will be tomorrow, Sunday, the host of Jaraaf at the municipal stadium of Ngor on behalf of the 22e day of Ligue 1. An opportunity for the Rufisquois to take a firm step towards the title. But also to collect, at the same time with four days to go, the points which will allow us to secure our rear. In this duel at the top, victory will be just as imperative for Jaraaf. The “Green and White” who are 7 points behind are alert and know that a defeat or draw could have serious consequences and would open up an avenue for the leader. If they are not simply left behind by their direct competitor. This is Guédiawaye FC (3rd, 36 pts) which for its part welcomes Génération Foot (10th, 22 pts) to the Lat Dior stadium in Thiés. With the same number of points behind the leader, the Suburban club will not be fooled and knows that the title is still within reach. For the Academicians, this duel will also be crucial in the fight for maintenance which is still far from guaranteed. Fourth in the standings, AS Pikine (30 pts) will travel to Kolda where they will face Casa Sports keen to get out of the red zone (11th, 22 pts).

This is the case of Linguère de Saint-Louis (8th, 24 pts) who will challenge the Dakar Sacré-Coeur at the municipal stadium of Ngor (5th, 30 pts). For its part, Sonacos de Diourbel (6th, 28 pts) welcomes Stade de Mbour, the first non-relegation team (12th, 21 pts), to the Lat Dior stadium. After a bitter defeat conceded at home against Diambars (3-4) during the previous day, Jamono Fatick will try to redress the situation during the visit he makes tomorrow Sunday to the US Gorée field (7e ; 27 points) at the Djagaly Bagayoko Stadium. Previously Diambars, the red lantern (14th, 17 pts) will try this Saturday to confirm the resounding success achieved at Fatick against the other promoted US Ouakam (9th, 22 pts). A tough Ouakamoise team with two successive defeats which bring them closer to a return to Ligue 2.
