AS Saint-Etienne will not be playing Europa League football next season after they suffered a 1-0 loss at the hands of Lille OSC on the final day of the season. Going into the game, ASSE were a point ahead of Lille and only needed to avoid defeat to stay ahead of Les Dogues.
Instead, Eder’s first half penalty four minutes before half time gave the northern outfit all three points in front of a 39,550 strong crowd at Stade Geoffroy-Guichard, and also European football at the expense of Les Verts. They will now join Nice as France’s representatives in the Europa League next season.
