A look at AS Saint-Etienne

Published on the 27 April 2006 à 09:40 by R.B

This will be the 40th time that Saint-Etienne have visited Lyon in Ligue 1. Les Verts have endured a fairly average season so far and are currently 12th in the First Division.

After a great start to the current campaign (7 games without defeat, 13 points and just one goal conceded) Julien Sablé and Co were unable to go on with it. The effect of the African contingent leaving for the African Cup of Nations certainly affected results. 11 wins, 13 draws and 11 defeats; 28 goals scored and 32 conceded. Away: 5 victories (Nice 1-0, Strasbourg 1-0, Rennes 1-0, Le Mans 1-0 and Metz 1-0); 6 draws (Troyes 0-0, Toulouse 1-1, Nantes 1-1, Bordeaux 0-0, Auxerre 0-0 and PSG 2-2); 6 defeats (Lille 2-0, Monaco 1-0, Lens 2-1, Nancy 2-0, Marseille 2-0 and Sochaux 4-0) – 10 goals scored, 17 conceded.

Piquionne 6 goals, Feindouno 3, Hellbuyck 3, Hognon 3, Gomis 2, Postiga 2, Perrin 2, Diawara 1, Ilunga 1, Mazure 1, Mendy 1, Sable 1 and two own-goals (Nantes and PSG). Feindouno three assists, all for Piquionne, Perrin 3, Piquionne 3…

28 goals scored from inside the penalty area; 0 penalties; 0 free-kicks; 7 headers; 9 goals from crosses; 5 from corners; 5 from free-kicks. ASSE is the only team in Ligue 1 not to have scored from the penalty spot.

9 goals conceded from outside the penalty area out of 32; 7 headers; 5 free-kicks (Toulouse, Lille, Troyes, Marseille, Lens); 3 penalties (Sochaux x 2, Nancy); 4 from corners; 5 from free-kicks and 6 from centres.

25 players used, but none have played in all 35 matches. Janot 34, Sable and Camara 33, Piquionne, Hellebuyck and Diawara 32, Zokora, Feindouno and Ilunga 27…

51 yellow cards: Zokora 6, Hellebuyck 5, Ilunga 5, Postiga 5, Sable 4, Camara 4, Piquionne 4, Perrin 4… 3 red cards: Camara, Ilunga and Yahia.
