Pascal Dupraz will have to make choices. For the reception of Montpellier this Saturday (5 p.m.) AS Saint-Etienne has recorded the return of several important players. The Greens will first be able to count on their top scorer: Wahbi Khazri returned from the CAN and will be, except last minute glitch, holder against Montpellier.
Hamouma returns, Mangala first
The Tunisian international could be associated with Romain Hamouma. The dean of the Saint-Etienne workforce is finally back after more than two months (injured since November 24). This Saturday the Cauldron public will also have the opportunity to discover one of the transfer window’s flagship recruits: Eliaquim Mangala is operational and is applying for a starting position at the heart of defence.
Crivelli will have to wait
In contrast Enzo Crivelli will have to wait for his meeting with the public of Geoffroy-Guichard. The striker who arrived in the last hours of the transfer window suffers from a hamstring problem and will normally make his big debut against Clermont. Aimen Moueffek, Gabriel Silva and Bakary Sako are uncertain. As Miguel Trauco who returns from selection this Thursday evening. Harold Moukoudi and Yvan Neyou are still at the CAN and face Egypt in the semi-finals.
