Hard blow confirmed for the Greens!

While the LFP Disciplinary Commission met yesterday, the high authority of French football examined the case of the players to be suspended. The sanctions of Etienne Green and Sergi Palencia are now known. A blow for the Greens that this weekend will host the Girondins de Bordeaux.

It was to be expected, the Greens will have to do without Etienne Green. Excluded once again against Pau for an uncontrolled exit, the latter had allowed Palois to take the advantage before being joined on the scoreboard by Stéphanois and close the game with a deserved draw (2-2). Already sent off during the debacle against Le Havre (0-6), the AS Saint-Etienne goalkeeper received a two-game suspension decided by the Disciplinary Committee of the Professional Football League for his recidivism. A blow for Laurent Batlles who will have to do without his young goalkeeper at dawn to face the leader of the championship: the Girondins de Bordeaux. The last bastion of the AXIS will also miss the transfer of teammates on the lawn of L’En Avant Guingamp. With 2 red cards received over a span of 7 short matchdays, Geoffroy-Guichard’s goalkeeper is currently number one in the early season red card table. A very sad figure for the player and the Forez club, still struggling with the 4 points scored and the 19th place in the general classification of Ligue 2 in the space of a few weeks. A suspension that could allow Mathieu Dreyer to take the place of goalkeeper No. 1 and shake up the hierarchy.

Palencia is also suspended

Etienne Green is not the only one to have been sanctioned by the LFP. Spanish right-footed Sergi Palencia will also miss his team’s trip to Roudourou. The LFP suspended the player following an accumulation of yellow cards since the beginning of the season (3 yellow cards in 7 games). The Stéphanois will therefore have to do without their two owners for the next deadlines.
