First victory for AS Saint-Étienne in Strasbourg?
Before going to challenge the RC Strasbourg, the ASSE is the red lantern of the Ligue 1. The Stéphanoise team totals only 4 points for no victory in 9 days played. Claude Puel’s players recorded 5 defeats in a row and 4 draws. However, they showed commitment and determination against OL (1-1), in the last match before the international break. And that bodes well for a more positive league run for the relegation-threatened Ligier club. Concerning Racing (12th with 11 points), it remains on a defeat against LOSC (1-2) and a draw in Montpellier (1-1).
