Six penalty points, including three suspended, applicable to the 2022-2023 season. And six games behind closed doors at the Geoffroy-Guichard stadium, including two suspended. The leaders of ASSE had been waiting for the sanctions since the end of the match between the Greens and AJ Auxerre, which saw the defeat of the Stéphanois, synonymous with demotion in Ligue 2. But beyond a defeat with serious consequences, it is the attitude of certain supporters who invaded the field to engage in a battle of smoke bombs which was judged this Thursday evening by the disciplinary committee of the LFP. It is therefore a big penalty that fell against AS Saint-Etienne after the enormous overflows of this barrage. This does not help the affairs of the Forez club, which will already have a lot to do to try to find the elite as quickly as possible. In a press release published on Thursday evening, ASSE announces “having decided not to appeal of the decision, having regard to the nature of the facts complained of”. Will the reprieve of three points and two games behind closed doors this time encourage the ultras from Saint-Etienne to hold their ground on their return to the Cauldron? This will be one of the major challenges of the new Saint-Etienne season with Laurent Batlles on the bench.
