RC Lens: the Greens look gray when welcoming the Sang et Or

For the moment, the year 2022 does not yet resemble the expected renewal on the side of AS Saint-Étienne. Always last in Ligue 1 (12 points with one game less), the Greens receive Racing Club de Lens (6th) this Saturday at 5 p.m. it’s about the 100th meeting between the two clubs and on paper it does not look to the advantage of the Stéphanois. At least the fault 10 absent in the squad of Pascal Dupraz and, conversely, to the good Lensoise dynamic at the start of the years.

After bringing down rival Lille in the Coupe de France, the Sang et Or offered Stade Rennais last weekend in a table top poster. “They are doing a very good first part of the season recognizes a Pascal Dupraz admiring the work done. I respect this team but I don’t fear Lens. It will not be a feat if we achieve a result. We have to find solutions with the workforce we have at the moment“.

We should see the rookies

Pascal Dupraz has to deal with the absences of his five African internationals who left for the CAN (Sow, Neyou, Moukoudi, Bouanga and Khazri) two players in the recovery phase (Green and Hamouma) and three players affected by Covid (Kolodziejczak, Sako, Sissoko). With more than one central defender (Mickaël Nadé), the Haut-Savoyard will have to draw from the Reserve team or tinker with certain positions.

Pascal Dupraz should also be forced to launch Paul Bernardoni and Now Thioub arrived from Angers last week. On the transfer window and the attacker’s file, the technician recognized that it was for the moment “to the point of death“.

The probable composition of ASSE : Bernardoni – Mason, Camara, Nadé, Silva – Moueffek, Youssouf – Nordin, Boudebouz, Thioub – Krasso
