AS Saint-Etienne will be shorn of the effective midfielder Yohan Mollo when they welcome LOSC Lille to the Stade Geoffrey Guichard on Sunday afternoon.
Mollo, while not a starter, has emerged as one of ASSE’s key men in recent weeks. He has delivered influential performances as the Loire-based side have tightened their grip on a Europa League spot.
He opened the scoring in the 2-0 triumph over FC Lorient two weekends ago and, despite only being on the pitch for 14 minutes last weekend, found the net as ASSE overcame relegation-threatened Metz at the Stade Saint-Symphorien
However, the former Nancy Lorraine and AS Monaco man will be absent when Saint-Etienne welcome Lille due to a suspension.
He’s not the only absence that Christophe Galtier will have to contend with.
As reported by L’Equipe, Bayal Sall, Jonathan Brison, Florentin Pogba and Renaud Cohade all remain out of action due to injury, and none of the quartet are in contention against Les Dogues.
