AS Saint-Etienne vs AS Monaco  
Competition: French Ligue 1
Date: 15 December 2017
Kick-off Time: 20:45 GMT
Venue: Stade Geoffroy-Guichard
Saint-Etienne team need to play best to remain undefeated in this game with the current champions. The replacement of Garcia did not help the team too much, who was otherwise fired after a shocking home defeat of 5-0 in the match with Olympique Lyon, because the team, under the baton of new coach Sable, only made two home draws and three guest defeats.The last defeat was inflicted by Olympique Marseille at Velodrome Stadium, with a score of 3:0, while they in the same way ended their previous performance at Bordeaux. St. Etienne managed to avoid defeat in their last two appearances, but now against Monaco, they must be even more aggressive if they want to get a positive result. Defenders Perrin and Silva are out of action due to injuries, and striker Hamoum, while defender Pierre-Gabriel is also unable to perform.
For to the current French rivals, AS Monaco, it is now quite certain that they will not be able to defend that title, because they have nine points less after 17 rounds than the leading Paris Saint Germain, which recently defeated them in Monaco with 2-1. After that coach, Jardim’s players, were defeated by Nantes, while they were a little better in the next two games and they were defeated at home with 1-0 by Angers and last weekend with 3-2 by Troyes.Nevertheless, Monaco made a routine victory of 2-0 at home against Caen, while they had to leave the UEFA Champions League in the worst possible way because they were defeated by RP Leipzig and FC Porto in the last two rounds and they ended up in the last place in their group. However, this is good thing in some way, because they can now fully dedicate themselves to their domestic championship and the struggle for placement in the Champions League. Injured midfielders Tielemans and Traore and striker Jovetic will not be able to play this match.

Probable lineups:
AS Saint-Etienne: Ruffier – Janko, Theophile-Catherine, Lacroix, M'Bengue – Dabo, Selnaes, Pajot – Bamba, Diony, Cabella
AS Monaco: Subasic – Sidibe, Glik, Jemerson, Jorge – Fabinho, Moutinho – Ghezzal, Lemar, Keita – Falcao
