Venue: Stade Geoffroy-Guichard.
St Etienne’s 0-0 result over Bastia may have seemed poor on reflection but at least it stopped their losing streak. The club still has an outside chance of European football next season but they will have to string a few wins together and get their consistency back on track.
The team has played with no punch and some fans have suggested that some quarters of the squad are on early holiday. This match at home to Metz is the perfect opportunity to prove themselves once again.
Metz has climbed out of the bottom three and they also have a game in hand of their nearest rivals. Away from home the club have won just 11 points from a possible 42, and have lost their last 3 games in a row.
