PREVIEW: MONTPELLIER HÉRAULT SC – AS ST ETIENNE
RECAPS
EXTRA TIME
CHRISTOPHER ANDERSON - Friday, February 4, 2011
St Etienne travels down to Montpelier for a chance to move up the standings into a Europe-bound spot on Saturday evening.

Carlos Bocanegra continues to have the green light for a spot in the backline in what will be his 18th appearance of the season for the squad.

St Etienne skipper Christophe Galtier may present a few new faces to the lineup. The flurry of transfer activity this past week saw the departure of Argentine striker Sergio Bergessio on loan to Catania in Italy. In his place Gabonese striker Pierre-Eymerick Aubameyang and Argentine midfielder Alejandro Alonso have moved over from AS Monaco, and could see their first action in the green and white.

St. Etienne will be on the lookout for Montpellier striker Olivier Giroud, author of seven tallies this season. Fortunately for Montpellier coach René Girard, the Pailladin have no major injury worries plaguing the squad.

The familiar foes will remember a meeting last September when St. Etienne stole the show in a 3-0 victory at home, thanks to two from club-leading scorer Dimitri Payet.

A big question for U.S. fans heading into the World Cup is surely on Jozy Altidore and just what is plaguing the young striker at Sunderland.
