Two weeks before his final of the Coupe de France against PSG, Saint-Étienne largely won at the expense of Nice (4-1), this Friday, during a meeting played behind closed doors at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard. This is the second victory for the Stéphanois after that obtained on July 4 against Rumilly-Vallières (4-1, N3).
The Niçois however opened the scoring by Kephren Thuram (17th), but the Greens equalized by Jean-Philippe Krasso (41st), attacker arrived from Épinal (N2).
Burner released on injury
ASSE, which could have led at half-time with a resumption of the head of Denis Bouanga hitting the bar (44th), took off, after eleven changes at the break, with a double from Charles Abi (46th, 56th) and a goal from defender Yvann Maçon, recruited this winter (52nd).
The Aiglons, already beaten in Lyon (1-0) on July 4, finished at ten after Patrick Bruner’s ankle injury (72nd), while they had also made many replacements at the break.
