AS Saint-Etienne : ASSE: Villas-Boas and Puel deprived of several executives | ASSE News

OM will receive theASSE Thursday evening (9 p.m.) in a late match of the first day of Ligue 1. André Villas-Boas and Claude Puel will not be able to count on their entire world.

OM: Two absent and two uncertain against ASSE

After two wins in as many games, OM will receive theASSE with the aim of securing a third victory. But the mission promises to be complicated against a team from Saint-Etienne who are also very fit at the start of the season (2 games, 2 wins). Indeed, André Villas-Boas will not have his entire group. Left-back Jordan Amavi and center-forward Dario Benedetto will not be in attendance due to their expulsion from Paris Saint-Germain (OM win 0-1) on Sunday night. In addition, Bouna Sarr (tested positive for the coronavirus on August 25) and Morgan Sanson (victim of contracture in a thigh) are uncertain.

AS Saint-Etienne not better off

Yes André Villas-Boas will therefore have some problems composing his starting XI, it is not the great serenity on the side ASSE. Claude Puel will be deprived of the services of left-back Gabriel Silva, who suffered from a thigh pain contracted during summer preparation. The Saint-Etienne coach is also not sure whether he can align left winger Arnaud Nordin and defensive midfielder Yvan Neyou, who were affected on Sunday against RC Strasbourg (2-0). “Arnaud Nordin has taken a good footing, he is not necessarily forfeited. We will take stock between now and the match. We will also take stock of Neyou, he has a few minor injuries, “said the boss of the bench of AS Saint-Etienne at a press conference.
