Game 5 in Group C sees some jockeying for position as Saint-Etienne welcome Mainz while Anderlecht, also on eight points, travel to Gabala. ASSE are ninth in Ligue 1 and have pretty much the same form across both competitions they are in with 2 points per game, although are mildly more successful in front of both goals in Europe (scoring five and […]

Saint-Etienne are lying seventh in Ligue 1 after a creditable 1-1 draw against Monaco at the weekend, and will be away at Metz on Sunday. They are also in and around in the Europa League standings, as Group C sees a confused mess of trying to rank teams with the same points, as three teams have five, two the same goal […]

Preview : AS Saint-Etienne v Gabala FC

While Mainz and Anderlecht slug it out elsewhere in Group C, Saint-Etienne will hope that they can continue the Europa league trend of putting three past Gabala, to stay in contention for progression from the group. Les Verts are ninth in Ligue 1 and looking more than a little patchy at times, with a defence made up of twigs, string and defensive […]

asse-v-mainz

Saint-Etienne welcome Anderlecht to the Geoffroy-Guichard in something of a pickle. They got a point from their first game, away at Mainz, thanks to a late equaliser from Robert Beric, in a fairly level game. A creditable away point, therefore, and now a slightly sterner test; and not just due to the nature of the opposition. Christophe Galtier has fairly frequent […]

Saint-Etienne have made it through two qualifying rounds, against AEK Athens and Beitar Jerusalem, for another crack at the Europa League. In the last three seasons they were knocked out in a play-off by Esbjerg, finished bottom of their group behind Inter, Dnipro, and Barcelona-of-the-Caucasus Qarabag, and last season made it out of the group to lose to Basel on away goals […]

Beitar v ASSE

Saint-Etienne are in a strong position going into the second leg of the play-off as they welcome Beitar Jerusalem to the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard. After conceding inside ten minutes in the first leg, goals from Fabien Lemoine and Florentin Pogba put them ahead by half-time, and that was how it stayed. It was a slightly shaky start for Les Verts as […]

Tonight sees Saint-Etienne in action in the Europa league play-offs, with a potentially tricky trip away to Beitar Jerusalem, third in last season’s Israeli Premier League.
