With no wins in their last four games in the league, Saint Etienne will be eager to get the victory when they host Strasbourg who have been tough in the league recently. The game will take place at the Stade Geoffroy Guichard Stadium in the 14th round of the French Ligue 1.
THE HOSTS TO END THEIR WINLESS STREAK
Saint-Etienne have collected a total of 4 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in Ligue 1. Their last league match was against Lille away from home where they lost 3-1.
Jean-Louis Gasset has joined new boss Julien Sablé’s as co-trainer and they could change formation from last Friday’s 4-4-1-1.
With Leo Lacroix suspended and Kévin Théophile-Catherine a doubt, Florentin Pogba should again partner Loic Perrin in central defence.
Saint-Etienne are currently sitting in the 7th place in the league table. They have 18 points from 5 wins, 3 draws and 5 losses. The team scored 14 goals and conceded 18 since the start of the season.
THE VISITORS TO ESCAPE THE RELEGATION ZONE
Strasbourg have collected a total of 8 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in Ligue 1. Their last league match was against Stade Rennais at home where they won 2-1.
Strasbourg are currently sitting in the 18th place in the league table. They have 13 points from 3 wins, 4 draws and 6 losses. They have scored 15 goals and conceded 24 since the start of the season.
Anthony Goncalves has been ruled out for at least two weeks through injury, while Benjamin Corgnet has undergone surgery on his knee and will be unavailable until 2018. Look for Jérémy Grimm to replace the former Stade Lavallois man, although Jonas Martin could also play a deeper role. Martin Terrier and Nuno Da Costa are back from suspension and both could figure here.
Head To Head
Strasbourg have won 2 of the last 5 meetings between the two teams. The last clash between the two teams was in October 2017 when the final score was 1-1.
