The Nîmes arrived motivated for this day after a victory away, by 1-2, in the visit to the Lille stadium: Kone and Ripart scored the “goals” of the victory. The local club usually plays with a 4-3-3 tactical system, favoring a more offensive style of play, attacking through the side aisles. Nîmes is a team that opts to use a style of play in possession of the ball, moving along the ground through triangulations, and usually uses the most central area of the field to invest in the offensive process. The players responsible for launching the panic in the “enemy” zone are Niclas Eliasson, Moussa Koné and Zinedine Ferhat. For this meeting, coach Pascal Plancque must not have absences.
After 8 wins, 9 draws and 13 losses, the visiting team is currently in 16th position, with 33 points won. In their last match, they lost against Monaco at home by (0‑4), after having won away in the previous match, in a match against Angers SCO, by (0‑1). This is a team that presents similar results at home and away, so it is not usually affected by the home factor, since in the last 30 games it has recorded 4 wins, 3 draws and 8 losses as a visitor; against 3 wins, 6 draws and 6 losses in his stadium. For the championship, Saint-Étienne won 14 points out of a possible 30, after 4 wins, 2 draws and 4 losses in the last 10 away games. His attack has scored regularly, as he has scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 30 games in this competition, he never got the comeback in the 14 games in which he conceded the first goal.
Saint-Étienne arrives unmotivated for this match after a defeat at home, by 0-4, against Monaco. The visiting team will be able to play in a tactical system at 5-3-2, and will have to adopt a more offensive stance, bearing in mind that it is visiting a lower quality “enemy”. The actor in charge of putting the defenses of the “enemy” in the direction is the French Wahbi Khazri, who is a very experienced player and can be very decisive. Coach Claude Puel will not be able to count on Yvann Maçon because he is still devoted to the team’s doctors.
