On June 2, Stade Geoffroy-Guichard (Saint-Étienne) will host the match of the 38th round of the French Ligue 2, in which Saint Etienne will compete with Valenciennes. The battle will start at 20:45 CET.

Saint Etienne


The team is considered to be a legend of French football. It is a finalist of European Champion Clubs’ Cup, which repeatedly won all inner tournaments. On the other hand, it has not been possible to somehow seriously prove the positions in recent years. Nevertheless, “the Greens”, at the very least, remained in the Ligue 1... That had been until the previous season, when they finished in the 18th, relegated position. It goes without saying that the club was seen as the favourite of a lower level. Still, the team could not justify its status. It didn’t come close to fighting for a return to the Ligue 1; in fact, the status newcomer became only the middle peasant of the division, showing statistics at the level of other members of the peloton: 50 points allowed to close the top 10 of the current table. There was a powerful segment of 10 matches in February and the first half of April. Still, having realized that there was nothing left to fight for, the team slowed down. Taking into account 6 previous matches, there was an equal number of wins, draws and defeats.

Valenciennes


The club gained momentum just in time. After all, there was a real risk of the relegation to the third division of the country. Especially if we take into account the midst of a disastrous segment, when there were 4 draws and 4 defeats. Still, “Les Athéniens” began to take points and even win in April. Moreover, then it was able to achieve a segment without defeats at the finish line. First, they took draws in the away battle against Nimes and a home one in the struggle with Pau. Still, even the higher mentioned results could not be enough, and the team added in the game, winning, first, the match against Le Havre, the undisputed leader of the tournament, and then the game against Grenoble, at the end of spring. That 1-0 victory brought the team 45 points and the 13th place. Nevertheless, it cannot be said that survival is guaranteed – there exists a formal risk of being relegated, because Laval, which is in the 17th place, has got 43. However, this is practically a purely illusory threat.

The statistics of head-to-head matches


Valenciennes is unbeaten during 9 matches in a row. Speaking about the current season, the teams finished their battle with a draw, having played for the first time since 2014.
