Team News: Strasbourg
It doesn’t get much better regarding selection, with just one fitness concern for the Strasbourg manager Julien Stéphan to be concerned about from a near full-strength group. Karol Fila (Tear in the abductor muscle) will miss out. Players who are serving a ban and are therefore ineligible to play are Alexander Djiku and Adrien Thomasson.
Team News: St Etienne
Thanks to a fully healthy squad to pick from, the St Etienne manager Claude Puel has no fitness worries at all coming into this clash.
Here, we’re thinking that St Etienne will need to push hard to score against this Strasbourg side who we reckon should do enough to score at the other end and edge ahead.
We’re therefore expecting a very even contest with a 1-0 advantage for Strasbourg when the full-time whistle blows.
Should be an interesting one.
