Back to the competition on Monday, Saint-Etienne lost on the pitch to FC Annecy (2-1) in a match that counts to the 16th day of Ligue 2. The Greens will regret the missed opportunities and the second conceded goal, frankly avoided.
Almost a month and a half after their last league game (November 12), Saint-Etienne resumed their bad habits on Monday. While ASSE traveled to the field of FC Annecy, sank (2-1), confirming its status as a red lantern in Ligue 2, even before the other results of the 16th day.
Laurent Batlles’ team missed their two starts in the period. Moïse Sahi Dion scored the match’s two goals (2nd, 51st). After a nice opening with a rear wheel, the 21-year-old took advantage of a huge mess at the start of the second half (51st).
Charbonnier made his debut
On a first strike from Moïse Sahi Dion, Matthieu Dreyer somehow pushed back. Léo Pétrot tried to clear the ball that 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.
However, it all started from a corner where Dreyer had managed a good intervention. But the doorman can necessarily blame himself for his apathy. During the deluge, Léo Pétrot restored espor (76th) to the greens after a corner also under the sign of the approach.
For the first time at his new club, Gaëtan Charbonnier, who came on during the match, had opportunities to equalise, but to no avail. The former Auxerre and his teammates can regret the missed opportunities against a fairly realistic team. On Friday, Saint-Etienne will recover against Caen to end a streak of three defeats.
