AS Saint-Étienne face AC Monaco on Friday night (28 September) at Stade Geoffroy-Guichard in the first match of round eight in the French Ligue 1. Both teams did not start the season very optimistically and are still seeking for their best form. The hosts will try keeping their home ground a fortress this season – two wins and a draw so far. Monaco’s players will be more careful with their next match where they will be visiting Borussia Dortmund for a Champions League clash, fighting for their group stage survival after having lost the first game.
Key Players Missing
No injured and suspended players for the hosts. Monaco’s Rony Lopes is out of the game due to a hamstring injury. Willem Geubbels, Stevan Jovetic and Ronaël Pierre Gabriel are doubtful. The good news for Leonardo Jardim is that Sidibé, Aholou and Pellegri are back.
