Stade Geoffroy-Guichard: Home of St Etienne(credit: Wikipedia
Toulouse coach Alain Casanova takes his side to St Etienne on Saturday evening looking to continue a remarkable run of form at Stade Geoffroy Guichard.
Casanova, a boyhood St Etienne supporter, has never lost at the home of his favourite club, and he is hoping his sixth-placed side can boost their Europa League bid with three more points on his latest visit.
The 49-year-old told Toulouse’s official website: “Which player or coach does not have a desire to play in St Etienne?
“As a youngster, I used to go there as a supporter. I even had a green wig and I went to see them in the final of the Coupe de France 1978 against Nancy.
“This will be a difficult game, they will want to re-group after their two defeats in 2011, in the Coupe (de France against Clermont) and against Lens.
“I have never lost there as a coach, I hope it's a good sign and it will continue.”
Toulouse edged AS Nancy 1-0 in their most recent Ligue 1 match, while hosts St Etienne were beaten 2-1 at Lens last time out.
