The last defeat of the year conceded against Nantes on Wednesday is synonymous with annus horribilis for Saint-Etienne.
The Dupraz effect will wait until 2022 to be felt. If for the baptism of the former Toulousain, Sunday, Saint-Étienne had won against fans of Lyon-La Duchère (0-1), his first in Ligue 1 ended in defeat.
Opposed to Nantes, the Greens lost 1-0, crucified by a goal from Kolo Manui at the very end of the match, and remain stuck in last place in the standings with only 12 points on the clock.
This new disillusion is also worth a sad record to Stéphanois. The defeat conceded against the Canaries is indeed the 20th conceded by Saint-Etienne during the year. The worst total in the history of the club.
