AS Saint-Étienne’s anticipated showdown against Guingamp this Saturday, May 4, will be marred by the absence of striker Ibrahim Sissoko, who has been ruled out of contention despite making strides in his recovery from injury, according to coach Olivier Dall’Oglio.

Despite enjoying a triumphant streak in their previous three fixtures, AS Saint-Étienne faces a setback as they prepare to face Guingamp in the upcoming encounter, scheduled for the 36th matchday of Ligue 2.

The absence of Ibrahim Sissoko, who has contributed 11 goals in 27 appearances this season, deals a blow to the team’s aspirations, with the Malian forward sidelined due to a lingering muscle injury.

While hopes were high for Sissoko’s return to action this weekend following his rehabilitation, coach Olivier Dall’Oglio confirmed that the striker’s readiness remains uncertain, prompting the decision to err on the side of caution.

“Ibrahim Sissoko has resumed training, he is on track. We will assess his condition next week,” remarked the French tactician, emphasizing the importance of prioritizing the player’s well-being.

As AS Saint-Étienne braces for a pivotal clash against Guingamp, currently positioned 9th in the league standings with 50 points, the absence of Sissoko serves as a reminder of the unpredictable nature of football and the challenges posed by injuries.

Despite the setback, AS Saint-Étienne maintains their position as the 2nd-ranked team in Ligue 2, boasting 63 points as they strive to secure a coveted promotion spot.

As the countdown to kick-off commences, AS Saint-Étienne remains focused on overcoming adversity and maintaining their momentum in pursuit of their ultimate objective.
