AS Saint-Etienne : ASSE sinks in Strasbourg in a catastrophic match defensively during the 10th day of Ligue 1 | ASSE News

The summary of the match between RCSA and ASSE

Comments: Kevin Boderau and Olivier Roché

Another nightmarish match for ASSE. The first half was completely crazy at La Meinau. Not for the game but for refereeing decisions. Before that, the Greens were good and players in their match. From the first quarter of an hour, they take possession of the game. But again fairly sterile. Very few used. Despite everything Ryad Boudebouz is omnipresent, chaining 40-meter opening, high-class technical gestures, distribution of the game. However, against the course of the game, it is the RCSA which takes the mark on a corner (26 ‘) with Camara surpassed in air defensive play.

I thought we got into the game well. We had control – Claude Puel, after the match

It is especially defensively that it fishes on the Stéphanois side. Moukoudi is not there with raises directly on the opponent or exceeded by the Strasbourg speed. Moreover, he is late on the second goal (38 ‘) which forced Youssouf to tackle in the direction of the game and put the ball in the net.

It is in the last minutes of the first act that the match goes crazy. Mr Lesage takes out the red card directly following a tackle from behind by Youssouf on Ajorque. An uncontrolled tackle, even if he holds back his gesture, but not dangerous. The debate is launched on the color of the cardboard. A decision that becomes incomprehensible when, in stoppage time, Nordin is lifted by Le Marchand in the box. Penalty, yes, but just a yellow. And there, we cry scandal. The penalty is transformed by Khazri, 2-1 at the break.

However, these arbitration decisions must not make us forget the content of the game which is solely responsible for the score. Like, ASSE is not varnished, she also lost Green (following the 2nd goal) after a collision with Kolo. Stunned, he is replaced by Bajic.

In the second half, the defense will stay behind. And it is very worrying for the future. At 53 ‘, Ajorque’s penalty was not far off, luckily Bajic made a very quick reflex save. But a quarter of an hour later, the defense, in the street, allows Gameiro, alone and quiet in the 5m50, to score the 3rd goal (69 ‘). The nightmares continued with the 4th monkey goal Ajorque (73 ‘) who easily took the lead on the Stéphane defense.

It is under these conditions that the young Dieye made his first appearance in Ligue 1. It is more comfortable but at least it avoids putting too much pressure on him in a match that seems to be playing for a while.

I am frustrated for my players, because they do a big job – Claude Puel

The chalice to the dregs. At the 85 ‘, it was Diallo, who entered the game, who scored the 5th goal finishing ASSE for good.

A nightmarish and catastrophic afternoon. ASSE is very last in Ligue 1.
