A big step towards keeping up with a direct competitor! This is undoubtedly what the ASSE players must have said to each other after their 2-0 success this Sunday on the lawn of Nîmes.
The Stéphanois owe their success to the achievements of Khazri (23rd) and Bouanga (66th).
The Greens saved by Green
But the match was above all marked by the great debut of young and promising Etienne Green (20), in the cage of the Greens. Green, the aptly named, 3rd goalkeeper of the Greens and trained at the club, played his first professional match this Sunday.
At the end of the game, he caused and then stopped a penalty. Beginnings that all Saint-Etienne supporters will remember.
The players of Saint-Etienne now occupy the 15th place in the standings, and are 7 points ahead of their opponent of the day, Nîmes, who occupies the 18th place, that of the play-off.
