Saint-Etienne vs Angers Prediction & Match Preview

Saint-Etienne vs Angers
French Ligue 1
Date: Friday, 11th December 2020
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Geoffroy-Guichard (Saint Etienne).

If even last-placed Nice can keep you at bay, then there are clearly some deep-rooted issues at Saint-Etienne, who are now riding an unwanted run of ten league games without a win. 

Claude Puel is naturally under immense pressure to turn things around but his side face an Angers outfit here who are going along nicely in the top half of the table at the moment. 

They also won their last three away games and against opponents who are so low in confidence and morale right now, it is tempting to back them picking up a fourth straight win on the road.

Team News:

Saint-Etienne forward Charles Abi was not available for last Sunday's draw at Dijon after picking up an injury in training, but the 20-year-old could return for this one.

However, Gabriel Silva is still sidelined alongside long-term absentee Yvann Macon, so Miguel Trauco is guaranteed another start at left-back.

Bayer Leverkusen loanee Panagiotis Retsos has returned to training after a groin injury, but the visit of Angers will come too soon for the defender.

As for Angers, Souleyman Doumbia was suspended for the win over Lorient after an accumulation of bookings, but the left-back will return for this one.

Doumbia should demote Vincent Manceau to the bench, but Sofiane Boufal had to be forced off on a stretcher last weekend and could be out until the new year.

Ibrahim Amadou also had to be substituted only a few minutes after Boufal's injury, and while the midfielder's hamstring problem is not too serious, he will miss out here.

Saint-Etienne possible starting lineup:
Moulin; Debuchy, Moukoudi, Kolodziejczak, Trauco; Youssouf, Neyou, Camara, Bouanga; Abi, Hamouma

Angers possible starting lineup:
Bernardoni; Bamba, Traore, Thomas, Doumbia; Mangani, Bobichon; Lage, Fulgini, Capelle; Bahoken
