At the opening of the eleventh day of Ligue 1, Saint-Etienne welcomes Angers at the Geoffroy-Guichard stadium, this Friday at 9 p.m. Red lantern of the championship with only four small units, the Greens are still looking for their first victory this season, they who remain on a stinging setback against Strasbourg (1-5). An already decisive match for Claude Puel, on the hot seat in recent hours and who could see his departure definitively recorded in the event of a new underperformance. For its part, the formation trained by Gerald Baticle is in fifth place with sixteen units, just one length behind OM, third Marseille. The West club remains on a defeat against Paris Saint-Germain at the Parc des Princes (1-2), marred by a significant controversy around the arbitration after the victorious goal of Kylian Mbappe from the penalty spot.

For this meeting, ASSE is deprived of Etienne Green and Miguel Trauco, injured as well as Zaydou Youssouf, suspended. Opposite, Angers must do without Zinedine Ould Khaled and Abdoulaye Bamba. In light of these absences, Claude Puel therefore aligns a 4-4-2 where Bajic, holder in goal, is protected by a defensive quartet composed of Camara, Moukoudi, Sow and Mason. In the middle, Neyou, on sentry, is accompanied by Gourna-Douath and Moueffek, slightly behind Boudebouz. In front, Krasso and Khazri are partners. Opposite, Gérald Baticle renews almost the same eleven as at the Parc des Princes, with the exception of Cho replacing at kick-off. Last bulwark of 3-4-1-2, Bernardoni is protected by a three-way defense formed by Manceau, Traoré and Thomas. In the midfield, Mangani and Mendy ensure the double pivot, well helped by Capelle and Cabot, aligned in a role of piston. Playmaker, Fulgini will be required to feed the attacking duo Bahoken-Boufal.

Saint-Étienne: Bajic - Camara, Moukoudi, Sow, Mason - Gourna-Douath, Neyou, Moueffek, Boudebouz - Krasso, Khazri.

Angers: Bernardoni - Manceau, Traoré, Thomas - Cabot, Mangani, Mendy, Capelle - Fulgini, Bahoken, Boufal.
