In search of their first Ligue 1 win of the season, early relegation contenders Saint-Etienne take on Angers at the Stade Geoffroy Guichard on Friday.

The visitors head into the game fresh off the back of a 2-1 defeat against title-favourites Paris Saint-Germain and will be looking to bounce back from that performance.

Saint-Etienne’s horrid start to the season continued last Sunday as they fell to a humiliating 5-1 defeat at the hands of Strasbourg.

Claude Puel’s men have now failed to pick up a win this season, with their last victory coming back in July when they edged out Grenoble 2-1 in a friendly fixture.

With four points from their opening 10 games, Saint-Etienne are currently rooted to the bottom of the Ligue 1 table.

Meanwhile, Angers saw their three-game unbeaten run come to an end courtesy of a 2-1 loss to Paris Saint-Germain.

They have enjoyed a brilliant season so far and have lost just two of their 10 games, while picking up four wins and four draws.

Angers are currently fifth on the log, level on 16 points with Olympique Lyon and Nice.
