Team News

  • Brandao and Fabien Lemoine are set to return for Saint-Etienne, but Alejandro Alonso and Banel Nicolita are both injured.
  • Faouzi Ghoulam and Max-Alain Gradel are both set to be absent due to their participation in the African Cup of Nations.
  • Toulouse will be without Franck Tabanou, who is out through suspension, while Marc Vidal and Pavle Ninkov are both unavailable due to injury.
  • Aymen Abdennour is taking part in the African Cup of Nations and will miss out.

Prediction

  • Saint-Etienne welcome Toulouse to the Stade Geoffroy Guichard hoping to climb their way back up to a table following a dramatic slump in form before the winter break.
  • Les Verts entered the halfway point of the season on a run of just one win in six. Toulouse have also struggled for form following a good start to the season, with their 2-0 win over Sochaux bringing an end to a run of four games without a victory.
  • Both teams did taste victory in the Coupe De France against lower ranked sides last weekend, but that will mean little going into this clash, which both will be desperate to win if they are to keep their hopes of a European place alive.
  • Expect an exciting encounter between two talented teams, Saint-Etienne have been far from consistent at home this term, but they may just have enough to overcome a Toulouse side that has found regular goals difficult to come by.
