St Etienne – Reims : Preview & Prediction
Sunday, at 3:00 p.m., AS Saint-Etienne receives the Stade de Reims, in a match counting for the 26th day of Ligue 1 Conforama. Beaten on the lawn of Brest last Sunday, the men of Claude Puel are in danger, and have only two points ahead of the Dijon dam, twelve days from the end. The observation is therefore simple: to avoid an end to the galley season Stéphanois must start winning again, especially when they play in their cauldron by Geoffroy Guichard. To do this, ASSE coach Claude Puel will notably count on his striker Denis Bouanga, who claims to be one of the most consistent in performance this season. While he has just scored against Brest and Epinal, and Reims is no longer so solid as that, the native of Le Mans will still be the number one asset of the Greens this weekend, and could find the flaw again .
Saint-Etienne has always scored in its last 10 duels against Reims.
Despite the poor results, ASSE has just scored 4 goals in two games.
Denis Bouanga, 10 goals this season, is in good shape. The Gabonese just scored 2 times in 2 games for the Greens.
Reims has only produced a clean sheet in its last eight games.
Away, Reims has just conceded 9 goals in 5 games.
Last weekend, the SdR was also mistreated on the lawn of Strasbourg (3-0). End of solidity behind?
Being one of the only ones to shine on the side of Saint-Etienne lately, Denis Bouanga could mark again, in a Geoffroy Guichard that we imagine behind his Greens in this difficult context.
