The international break did not allow Saint-Etienne to revive. The Greens lost heavily against Brest (4-1) on Saturday, November 21 during the 11e League day, their seventh defeat in a row. Claude Puel’s men did not exist in the match against another poorly classified, conceding all four goals after just over thirty minutes of play.
Two weeks after the defeat, with honors and promises, in the Lyon derby (2-1), the Stéphanois fell back into their pitfalls. The lack of revolt is worrying for Claude Puel’s team, battered throughout the first period at the Francis-Le Blé stadium and unable to rebel after the break. The entries of veteran Mathieu Debuchy in defense and striker Arnaud Nordin, after half-time, did not change anything.
To find such a shortage in Ligue 1 on the part of ASSE, we must go back to October and November 2008. The series had cost his place to coach Laurent Roussey, replaced by Alain Perrin. At the end of the season, the team had still managed to stay in Ligue 1, finishing in 17the square.
The good start of the season (10 points gleaned in four games) nevertheless allows the Greens to remain, temporarily, outside the red zone, two points ahead of Nîmes. On the next day of the championship, November 29, they will receive Lille (current runner-up of PSG before this 11e day), with the aim of avoiding continuing their bad streak.
Brest, after its success against these same Lille (3-2), on November 8, gives itself a little more air, five points ahead of its opponent of the day.
