L ‘ ASSE welcomes the Girondins de Bordeaux tonight at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard for the account of the sixth day of Ligue 1. Claude Puel, the coach of the Greens, prepares big surprises for this meeting.
ASSE: Claude Puel will make strong choices against Bordeaux
After five championship days, theAS Saint-Étienne is already in the hard. With 3 points out of 15 possible, the Greens occupy 18th place in the Ligue 1 standings. A situation that Claude Puel wants to quickly rectify to avoid a crisis. And the coach of the Ligerian club intends to start his revolution this Saturday against the Girondins of Bordeaux at 21 hours. Indeed, according to information gathered by The Team, Claude Puel would consider making three major changes in his starting team composition.
The sports newspaper thus explains that the only summer recruit of the ASSE, Ignacio Ramirez, who played his first minutes in his new jersey during the defeat in Montpellier (0-2), last Sunday, should have his first start tonight against Vladimir Petkovic’s men in Geoffroy-Guichard. The 24-year-old Uruguay international should start in the Cauldron with Romain Hamouma and Wahbi Khazri in support.
In the absence of Yvann Maçon, who suffers from ” his calf and an Achilles tendon pain “, Puel should opt for a three-center defense, in a 3-4-2-1 system according to the same source. Then, Mahdi Camara could lose his captain’s armband as well as his starting place to Lucas Gourna-Douath. In this case, it is Yvan Neyou who should ensure the captaincy against the Girondins. In summary, the coach of the Stéphanoise team would be ready to make three strong decisions for the clash against Bordeaux, this Saturday in Geoffroy-Guichard. Promoted captain since the beginning of the season, the young Mahdi Camara (23 years) could notably be downgraded by his coach.
The probable composition of the ASSE :
Green – Sow, Moukoudi, Nadé-Bouanga, Gourna – Douath, Neyou, Kolodziejczak – Hamouma, Khazri-Ramirez.
