Saint Etienne vs Man Utd Striming; Europa 22 Feb 2017

The reason for the game taking place on a Wednesday rather than the Thursday is due to the fact that Olympique Lyonnais, Saint-Etienne’s fiercest rivals, play their home leg of their round of 32 tie against AZ Alkmaar, so both can’t play on the same night due to safety concerns.

On the other hand, Les Verts come into the game after falling to a 2-1 defeat to Montpellier on Sunday which has seen them fall four points off a top four place in the Ligue 1 table.

The French side though showed in the first leg that they are a team that shouldn’t be underestimated, as if they had took their chances on the night, then the tie would be much more in the balance than it actually is.
