For Claude Puel, is it unreasonable to compare the current standing of AS Saint-Etienne and that of Stade Rennais, two teams who face each other this Sunday in Brittany?
Shy during the transfer window, in difficulty in Ligue 1, the Greens hoped to bring some sunshine to their gloomy season thanks to the Coupe de France. It missed. Pitifully eliminated by Sochaux, ASSE will now have to focus on maintenance. Currently 15th in L1, the Stéphanois nonetheless remain in three consecutive games without defeats in the league (2 wins and a draw). This Sunday at 3:00 p.m., the Stéphanois will be opposed to another team freshly eliminated from the Coupe de France, Stade Rennais. However, Claude Puel refuses any comparison between the two formations.
« A little less well… They are very high in the ranking (5th) and have playing habits. Like us, they were eliminated from the Coupe de France (by Angers, Editor’s note). We will see who will have recovered the fastest. Rennes has a lot of quality players. I don’t know if we can compare our two staffs on intrinsic quality. They may have a less successful move to realize their opportunities but given their ranking, it is because they have players to make the differences. I don’t worry about them »Declared the technician during the press conference before the match. If on paper, the Rennes seem far superior with internationals like NZonzi or Camavinga, the Bretons are far from being in great shape since they have not experienced victory for four games, and a success against Brest on January 17 latest. In such a context, the Greens surely have a card to play.
I hope you are in health and well.
