❌ The main player of ASSE was punished in the match against Sochaux

The Greens of Laurent Batlles are of good quality and are coming off 3 games unbeaten. Larsonneur is reassuring in the cages, the central defense is starting to find its footing, the recruits are slowly integrating and establishing themselves and the midfield duo is forming and achieving some big things. Yes, but now, this mid-game chemistry will be stopped dead on restart.

Repeated interruptions are disruptive

It’s a bad habit the Greens have picked up since the beginning of the season: getting yellow cards all game long. These reports of indiscipline and injuries have made the selection and management of Laurent Batlles difficult since the beginning of the season.

It should be noted that the regulations of the LFP stipulate that it is forbidden to be punished with 3 yellow cards during 10 games (all competitions combined), with the penalty of being punished with an automatic suspension match.

And this rule has already punished the inhabitants of Saint-Etienne many times: Palencia (suspended for J9), Giraudon (suspended for J10), Buoyari (suspended in the 7th round of the Coupe de France) and Giraudon again, this time for J16. Every time the strong elements of the Laurent Batlles group are currently T.

In addition, the players sent off and their accompanying sanctions: Green (2 red cards, 4 penalty games), Crasso (1 red, 4 penalty games), Giraudon (additional 1 red card, 1 penalty game), Briançon (1 red, 1 game suspension) or Cafaro (1 red, 1 game suspension) and you have multiple problems that are a huge headache for Laurent Batlles every day.

Bouchouari is still under sanctions

Again this Monday, before the trip to Niort, 4 players face automatic suspension if they receive another yellow card on the pitch of the René-Gaillard stadium. If Nade and Pintor do not have to be careful because they are outside the group and Cafaro is disciplined, this was not the case for the 4th thief: the young Benjamin Buuari, the author of the performance of the high flight. once again, alongside Aïmen Moueffe, he was voted man of the match by Saint-Etienne supporters.

The Moroccan midfielder, who produced a classy first half, came close to scoring his first goal for the Green in the 6th minute, only to see his shot collide with the Niort keeper’s coaching posts. Complementing Aïmen Moueffek very much, Bouchouari was able to use his assistant’s follow-up work and recovery to make a difference in small spaces.

3 yellow cards in 3 games is synonymous with punishment

His yellow card in the 43rd minute mars his performance a bit, as it will spell trouble for him and his team in the next match against Sochaux. Indeed, Benjamin Bouwari, who has received 3 yellow cards in as many matches, will surely be handed an automatic game penalty by the disciplinary committee this Tuesday.

Benjamin Bouchouari will therefore miss the Sochaux reception on Saturday 28 January. It will be his second game of the season to miss for undisciplined action after Rodez’s tackle in the French Cup, which was sent off on penalties.

Therefore, this new incident will force Laurent Batlles to at least consider his copy in midfield against Sochaux. Digitally replace him with Thomas Monconduit, who came on for him in the 73rd minute yesterday, like he did against Laval in the 69th minute? Or to reintegrate and directly establish Louis Mouton, who did not participate in the Deux-Sèvres trip?

Laurent Batlles has ten days and an important friendly against Clermont on Friday to reshape his squad and make his selections with the aim of extending his unbeaten run to four games in a row.
