Saint-Etienne vs Valenciennes Lineups and Team News

Saint-Etienne

Saint-Eteinne showed a visible lack of motivation last weekend when drawing 2-2 away vs Caen. Conceded both goals inside the final 10 minutes after playing well for about an hour before that. The home form had been solid all throughout 2023 though and the players would want to give their fans one more win.

Latest news

In-form striker Krasso is expected to continue leading the attack as the other main striker Charbonnier remains sidelined. Midfielder Fomba and the third main striker Wadji are doubtful, both might not be risked with Saint-Etienne playing only for pride.

Valenciennes

Valenciennes edged Grenoble at home to extend their unbeaten run to 4 and to almost certainly secure survival. Need 1 more point just to be sure but even without it likely to be able to finish just above the relegation zone.

Latest news

Have some issues in defence with the two main full-backs Lecoueche and Cuffaut doubtful. No other health issues though so the options are rich.
