36TH Day L1
AS Saint-Etienne has missed the first opportunity to ensure their qualification for the next Europa League. At the 36th day of Ligue 1, les Verts have lost against Montpellier (0-1), missing the passage the opportunity to take back the 3rd place to the OL, and qualifying for the Champions League. “It is a pity to leave points like that against a direct competitor. Even with a null result, we would have been satisfied. It’s a night to forget, and he must think the match against Nice. We have never thought of the champions League. If we manage to qualify for the C1, this would be a feat, especially getting in front of Lyon who will not let go of the case,” said Yann m’vila after the meeting. A statement hard to believe as saint-etienne close to Lyon in the standings.
If he regretted that first missed opportunity, the midfielder now wants to focus on the last two games of the season. “Now, there are still two matches and we must try to win this next meeting to solidify our position. We had the opportunity to make the Europa League. Montpellier was very good. We were warned. Our opponents have played well the kick. After the exclusion of Congré, we could have had the match in hands.”
