Romain Hamouma had an early chance to open the scoring after being sent through by Kevin Monnet-Paquet but Guingamp keeper Jonas Lossl was equal to the midfielder's effort.

Jimmy Briand had Guingamp's best opportunity of the first half as his 28th-minute strike was kept out by Saint-Etienne stopper Stephane Ruffier.

Hamouma broke the deadlock early in the second period, firing home from Neal Maupay's pass.

Lossl saved again in the 70th minute, this time from a Nolan Roux header, as Christophe Galtier's side searched for a second.

It came after 86 minutes in the form of a Valentin Eysseric penalty, the on-loan Nice midfielder slotting past Lossl from 12 yards after Dorian Leveque committed a foul in the area.

Greens defender Moustapha Bayal Sall was shown his second yellow for an elbow on Briand, though it was too late for Guingamp to take any advantage.

Saint-Etienne even managed to extend their lead in the dying moments of the tie as Roux struck in the 95th minute to wrap up the three points.
