AS Saint-Etienne : A superb new grave for Dupraz before Montpellier | ASSE News

A few days before a crucial meeting against Montpellier in Ligue 1, the ASSE has received great news, which should help Pascal Dupraz.

ASSE: Montpellier deprived of its strong man on Saturday

After his encouraging victory against the Angers SCO at the end of January in Ligue 1, AS Saint-Etienne revives hope and its dream of remaining at the end of the season. Author of an ambitious winter transfer window, the Greens approach 2022 with intentions and a completely new workforce. In addition to the seven signatures this winter, Pascal Dupraz recorded, in recent days, the welcome returns of several internationals who left for CAN in early January, such as Denis Bouanga (Gabon), Wahbi Khazri (Tunisia) and Saïdou Sow (Guinea).

A good omen for the next Stephanoises deadlines, starting with the meeting this weekend, against Montpellier. Currently 6th in Ligue 1, the MHSC is having a full season, despite a recent elimination in the Coupe de France against Olympique de Marseille. If ASSE can fear the team by Olivier Dall’Oglio, the club received huge news on Thursday, which should delight Pascal Dupraz.

The Montpellierans will present themselves to Geoffroy-Guichard on Saturday without their strong man in attack, Stephy Mavididi, who injured his knee this morning in training. It would be a knee twist during contact with his teammate Jonas Omlin, said his coach on the airwaves of France Blue this Thursday. A major disappointment for the Héraultais when we know the importance of the English striker this season. Author of 8 goals and 3 assists in the league, the 23-year-old striker should leave a significant void in attack on the Montpellier side against the Greens.

Which recruits are available against the MHSC?

Saturday’s meeting will be an opportunity for Pascal Dupraz to test several of its winter recruits. Yes Eliaquim Mangala has still not played a single minute in his new colors, the French international should, unless surprised, start his first Ligue 1 match against Montpellier.

The same applies to Falaye Sacko, recruited in the last minutes of the transfer window, who is expected to start the game on the right flank of the defense. As forEnzo Crivelli on the other hand, its participation with ASSE seems compromised. The former Bordeaux player is still affected by the adductors and should therefore wait before evolving under his new colors.
