Caen vs Saint-Etienne Lineups and Team News

Caen

Caen came from behind to deservedly beat Amiens 3-1 away from home last weekend. Despite winning 4 of their last 5 the Vikings lost their promotion chances a month ago and they play only for pride. They are certainly doing that very well.

The gaffer is likely to trust his regulars in this final home game of the season as Caen would want to bid their fans goodbye for the campaign with a positive result. The Vikings are practically at full strength with only the key defender Cisse deemed doubtful. There is plenty of cover for his position even if he’s to sit out.

Saint-Etienne

Saint-Etienne played with freedom and slight carelessness on their visit to Quevilly. The impressive forward actions proved enough for a 4-2 win but defensively looked shaky and lucky not to concede more with the woodwork saving them twice. Play only for pride and with this comes freedom in the most recent displays.

Striker Charbonnier and 2 others remain sidelined. Playmaker Bouchaouari seems to have recovered from a minor injury and he’s expected to be available. If that’s the case the starting lineup might be the same as last weekend.
