PREVIEW: RENNES - SAINT ETIENNE
Carlos Bocanegra will make a quick return to the club he spent two seasons at when his new team Saint-Etienne face Rennes at the Stade de la Route de Lorient on Saturday.
The 31-year old American defender did not feature in last weekend's 3-2 win over Sochaux and he will be hoping to return to Christophe Galtier's starting lineup.
Rennes started off the season with a 1-1 tie against Lille before running out 3-0 winners over Nancy last weekend.
Coach Frédéric Antonetti is already working with a depleted squad with Sylvain Marveaux out with an adductor injury.
Fabien Lemoine will be out for six months after suffering a kidney injury against Nancy.
Saint Etienne are currently in 10th place in Ligue 1 while Rennes are in third.
