In great danger last year, Saint-Etienne was very hot and finished the season in 17th place in the standings. Never really recovered from the departure of Jean-Louis Gasset, the Greens flirted with the red zone and seemed on the downward slope when the season was definitively interrupted due to the health context. On the other hand, the Forez players climbed to the final of the Coupe de France where they failed against PSG (0-1). After seeing their first match against OM postponed due to the many cases of Covid in the Marseille workforce, the Stéphanois got off to a good start in this new exercise by winning in front of Lorient (2-0).

Author of an average start to the season last year, no doubt no stranger to the many qualifying matches for the C3 played during the summer, the Racing Club de Strasbourg has nevertheless managed to raise the bar. Finally, the Alsatians obtained the 10th final place and confirmed that they had their place among the 12 best teams in France. However, Thierry Laurey’s men have started this season badly, conceding 2 losses in their first 2 games. The first on the ground of Lorient (3-1). The second at La Meinau against a great team from Nice (0-2). Also, they find themselves in 19th place in the ranking. During the international break, they could not garner a little confidence by losing again against Stuttgart in a friendly (4-2).

The workforce for Saint-Etienne vs Strasbourg

A big cleaning took place in Saint-Etienne this summer. Executives and big salaries Ruffier, M’Vila, Khazri, Boudebouz and Diony have all been asked to clear the floor even though none have yet found a way out. On top of that, Perrin retired and Honorat (Brest), midfielder Cabaye (no club) and nugget Saliba (Arsenal) all left the club. Claude Puel therefore relies on young people like defender Fofana, playmaker Aouchiche (ex-PSG) and striker Jean-Philippe Krasso (ex-Epinal). Absent in the last match, side Gabriel Silva and promising Moukoudi, Youssouf and Abi should make their return. Ruffier, Palencia, Trauco, Boudebouz, Diony and Khazri should once again be on the sidelines. On the other hand, the taulier Hamouma started well this new season by scoring a double in the first match.

Apart from the little used Corgnet, Grimm and Ndour, which were not selected, Racing has bet on continuity and kept all of its executives. Also, defenders Mitrovic, Djiku and Lala, midfielders Sissoko and Thomasson and striker Ajorque will probably most often form the base of Thierry Laurey’s starting 11. Victim of a ruptured Achilles tendon, goalkeeper No. 1 Sels will be on the floor while center forward Idriss Saadi is also in the infirmary.

The probable compositions for Saint-Etienne vs Strasbourg:

Saint-Etienne: Moulin – Debuchy, Fofana, Kolodziejczak, Mason – Nordin, Camara, Neyou, Bouanga – Hamouma, Aouchiche.
