Match Preview: Saint-Etienne vs Lens Team News and Lineups

Twelve points in 19 games have condemned Saint-Etienne to a struggling outfit at the bottom of the Ligue 1 table. The big question is will Pascal Dupraz inspire his men to get back to back winning ways in the New Year?

Saint-Etienne bagged a 4-1 win over Jura Sud Foot in Coupe de France days ago and while it was an easy game, this fixture could prove Dupraz wrong or right in his quest to salve Etienne’s dwindling fortunes. There is a glimmer of hope though. The hosts are only four points from safe and with a game in hand.

On the other hand, Lens comes to this match with a great start in the New Year. They shared the spoils with Lille in a 2-2 draw in Coupe De France on the fourth day of January and won in penalties t progress to quarterfinals. The visitors bagged a 1-0 home win against Rennes in the second match of the year. Notably, Lens has lost only once to Etienne in the last five meetings during which there were 2W in favour of Lens, one loss and two draws. However, only two matches had goals on one end in the last five meetings.

Saint-Etienne predicted lineup: Bajic, Silva, Kolodziejczak, Nade, Macon, Nordin, Camara, Neyou, Trauco, Khazriand Boudebouz.

Lens predicted lineup: Leca, Medina, Danso, Gradit, Clauss, Doucoure, Fofana, Frankowski, Costa, Kakuta and Kalimuende.
