Sablé: 'Difficult times'
Saint-Etienne coach Julien Sablé says it's time for actions not words from Les Verts, while Monaco boss Leonardo Jardim feels his side could have won by more than the four goals they managed at Stade Geoffroy-Guichard.

AS Saint-Etienne 0 - 4 AS Monaco
Julien Sablé (Saint-Etienne coach): "I don't want to use words that are too strong. It's difficult to live through, above all for my players. These are never easy moments and I'm very sad. We have another match to play in three days time and we'll need to fight and compete for everything. We need to deal with the situation with pride and courage. Words mean nothing. We need to be dignified during these difficult times. Psychologically, we are close to being inhibited."
Leonardo Jardim (Monaco coach): "It was a great evening as Monaco won and played well. We scored a lot of goals. Saint-Etienne aren't at their best at the moment. Usually when we come here the stadium is always full and the team is aggressive and compact. That wasn't the case today. They afforded us a lot of space and Monaco exploited that. We could have scored even more had we taken our chances."
