Team News: St Etienne
St Etienne manager Claude Puel has no fitness concerns to speak of ahead of this match with a fully healthy group to pick from.
It looks as if Les Verts look set to line up in a 4-2-3-1 system in the match with Jessy Moulin, Yvann Maçon, Timothée Kolodziejczak, Wesley Fofana, Mathieu Debuchy, Mahdi Camara, Yvan Neyou Noupa, Arnaud Nordin, Adil Aouchiche, Denis Bouanga and Romain Hamouma.
Team News: Strasbourg
Strasbourg manager Thierry Laurey has multiple availability issues to deal with. Matz Sels (Achilles tendon rupture) and Idriss Saadi (Calf Injury) are not able to play.
We are inclined to think that Le Racing appear most likely to play in a 4-2-3-1 system, starting the game with Eiji Kawashima, Kenny Lala, Alexander Djiku, Anthony Caci, Lionel Carole, Mohamed Simakan, Ibrahima Sissoko, Jean-Ricner Bellegarde, Adrien Thomasson, Mehdi Chahiri and Ludovic Ajorque.
We feel that in this game, Strasbourg certainly have the ability to find the back of the net against this St Etienne lineup, although it probably won’t be as many as they will have scored against them.
Our tip is for a tight encounter finishing with a 2-1 victory for St Etienne when all is said and done. We’ll have to see what happens.
