St Etienne – Gent : Preview & Prediction
AS St Etienne is still alive in this Europa League despite no win on the clock after 4 days. Defeated in Belgium (3-2), the Greens have just chained 3 draws against Wolfsburg (1-1) in the Cauldron and ahead of Oleksandria (1-1 and 2-2). With just two wins over the Ukrainian club, the Forézien club can have a lot of regrets so far but the qualification will be in the bag if Claude Puel’s team wins its last two European games against Gant and Wolfsburg . In Ligue 1, ASSE have just taken 3 points in Nantes (3-2) and 1 point ahead of Montpellier (0-0) with a very diminished team (Debuchy, Hamouma, Beric, Gabriel Silva, Cabaye, Khazri, Saliba and Monnet-Pack absent). Gant could see his opponent back in the event of defeat in the Cauldron. The Belgian club has recorded two bad results in the league against Antwerp with 1 loss away (3-2) and 1 draw at home (1-1). Undefeated in C3, the Gantoise was still hooked on Oleksandria (1-1) and against Wolfsburg (2-2) … enough to give hope to ultra-motivated Stéphanois.
AS St Etienne can still qualify if they win the last two meetings.
The Gantoise remain on 2 against performances against Antwerp in the league.
ASSE has just chained a 10th game without defeat since September 25th.
The Greens lost only once in the Cauldron in 9 receptions, all competitions.
Gantoise has only had 3 away wins in its last 15 trips in all competitions.
AS St Etienne, undefeated in the Cauldron in Europe, has the means to beat this team of the lucky enough in the Gantoise to the first leg (3-2).
