Dreyer dismissed after his big dumpling against Annecy

Laurent Batlles revealed the identity of the 19 players from Saint-Etienne who will play on the 17th day of Ligue 2 against Caen (Friday 30 December at 19:05). Among them is not the doorman Matthieu Dreyer, guilty of a dumpling on Monday night against Annecy (2-1 defeat to the Greens).

No time to think about the Greens. Stuck in last place in Ligue 2, all the more so after their defeat on Monday night on Annecy’s turf (2-1), Laurent Batlles’ men must absolutely recover, on Friday, December 30, against Caen at Geoffroy-Guichard ( 7. :05.00).

Dreyer absent from the Saint-Etienne group against Caen after his dumpling against Annecy

On this 17th day of the championship, the Saint-Etienne coach took the decision to do without his goalkeeper Matthieu Dreyer, as he was at fault for the second goal in Annecy on Monday in a rather strange way. In the 51st minute of play, after an initial strike from Moïse Sahi Dion, the 33-year-old goalkeeper had somehow pushed back. Behind, Léo Pétrot had tried to clear the ball, which spun in the goal, but his shot was met by Dreyer, who no longer knew what to do … and remained completely blocked in front of his goal. The moment of hesitation benefited Moïse Sahi Dion, who was very alert to score.

Boubacar Fall and Etienne Green are therefore the two goalkeepers called up for this decisive meeting against Stade Malherbe. Other notable absentees should be noted on the ASSE side, including Mathys Saban (thigh), Thomas Monconduit, Sergi Palencia and Antoine Gauthier.

“Things were said at the break in Annecy, hard things”, also developed the manager of the Greens at a press conference. “After the meeting I didn’t want to insist, I remained quite sober. The next day we talked, we worked with video. We tried to make certain things understood. This is what I repeat for a while. Everyone has explanations, good explanations, but the results on the field are not good.” There is no doubt that the Saint-Etienne supporters will be hoping to see their team perform much better on Friday night.
