After having found colors in the fall, AS Saint-Etienne has cooled as winter approached. Indeed, the Greens have lost 4 of their last 5 games in Ligue 1. If they won against Nice (4-1), they were still dominated by Rennes (2-1), Reims (3-1 ), PSG (0-4) and Strasbourg (2-1). However, they got off to a good start in 2020 by winning against Bastia-Borgo fans (0-3) in the Coupe de France last weekend. However, Claude Puel’s men sank completely on the grounds of Parc-des-Princes (6-1) on Wednesday.
For its part, FC Nantes spent Christmas in a very beautiful 5th place in the classification, a performance that it had never achieved since its rise in Ligue 1 in 2013. Although in their championships, the Canaries did all the same proof of irregularity in December. Logically beaten by PSG (2-0), they then took over Dijon (1-0) and Nîmes (0-1) before yielding against the neighboring Angevin just before the truce. Last weekend, the Nantais negotiated their debut in the Coupe de France well by winning seriously against Bayonne (0-2).
The staff for Saint-Etienne vs Nantes
Saint-Etienne remains deprived of many executives for this part. Claude Puel will have to line up a private team from Bouanga, Monnet-Paquet, Gabriel Silva, Saliba and Hamouma who are all in the infirmary. In addition to that, central defender Fofana will be suspended after being deported against Paris.
Absent against Bayonne, the defensive boss Pallois and the important Midfielder Bamba are hoped. On the other hand, Christian Gourcuff will not be able to count on his long-term injured Coco and Fabio, nor on the Mustache and Prado reservists.
The probable compositions for Saint-Etienne vs Nantes:
Saint-Etienne: Ruffier – Debuchy, Perrin, Kolodziejczak, Trauco – M’vila, Aholou, Youssouf – Boudebouz, Khazri, Nordin ,.
Nantes: Lafont – Appiah, Pallois, Girotto, Traoré – Abeid, Touré – Louza, Blas, Moutoussami – Coulibaly.
This match will take place behind closed doors after the Stéphanois supporters overflowed against PSG before the break.
During the first leg, Saint-Etienne came to win at Beaujoire (2-3).
