At this stadium, the head‑to‑head history favours the away team, since they have a record of 2 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss in the last 5 matches.

Analysis of Clermont

The home team is currently in the 8th position of the league, with 29 points won, after 7 wins, 8 draws and 4 losses. In the penultimate match, they tied in a home match against Lens, by (0‑0). In the last match, they won in an away match against Troyes, by (0‑1). In their last match, for the Coupe de France, they got an away loss against Marignane Gignac by (3‑0), after a penalty shootout. In the last 10 home league matches Clermont has a record of 4 wins, 5 draws and 1 loss, so they have won 17 points out of 30 possible.

They haven’t lost any of the last 8 home matches for this competition. There are a few recurrent results in their home league matches at half‑time: 0‑0 (4 out of 10 matches) and 1‑0 (4 out of 10 matches). Defensive consistency has been one of their best features, as they have only conceded goals in 3 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 19 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 5 times and have never been able to turn the score around.

Surely Clermont's campaign is not bad, but leaves them in the middle of the table and is not what they expect, so much that the focus is to evolve to try to fight for something better. Playing at home it is clear that the team want to win, but at the same time they know they will have difficulties and will have to overcome them if they really want the three points. Therefore, the hosts should show quality from the beginning to the end of the game, because it is precisely in this way that they can approach the desired result. The manager should take to the field the best players that are available.

Confirmed Lineup: R. Descamps, V. N'Simba, J. Laporte, F. Ogier, J. Phojo, J. Gastien, J. Iglesias, M. Perez, Mathias Lage, F. Honorat, F. Aye.
Coach: P. Gastien.

Analysis of Niort

The away team is currently in the 5th position of the league, with 32 points won, after 9 wins, 5 draws and 5 losses. In the penultimate match, they tied in an away match against Lorient, by (1‑1). In the last match, they tied in a home match against Brest, by (1‑1). In their last match, for the Coupe de France, they got an away loss against Bergerac by (2‑1). In the last 10 away league matches Niort has a record of 4 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses, so they have won 15 points out of 30 possible. In their away league matches the most frequent result at half‑time was the 0‑0 (4 out of 10 matches). Their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 19 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 5 times and have never been able to turn the score around. In the last 10 away matches for this competition there is 1 period that stands out: they have conceded 4 of their 9 goals between minutes (76'‑90').

The good moment has generated positive expectations in Niort, after all fighting for access is something great, so in this round the team want to score points anyway. The difficulty will surely exist in their current confrontation, but if they really want to conquer a positive result they will need to overcome this and show what they are capable of. It is true that a draw is not so bad, but with determination and objectivity the team can conquer the three points, and doing so will remain another round in the playoffs zone of access. The coach should take to the field the best players that are available.

Confirmed Lineup: S. Allagbé, M. Sans, I. Paro, F. Lapis, B. Konaté, D. Louiserre, J. Da Costa, T. Vion, D. Djigla, A. Dona N'Doh, V. Jacob.
Coach: P. Plancque.

Betting suggestion:

Clermont must score points to try to enter the qualifying zone, so they will have to enter the field with a lot of disposition and thus know how to attack with intelligence. The away team are trying to stay in the qualifying zone, so a draw will be much celebrated in this match. We believe that the away team enter the field in order to make an aggressive pressing, thus holding the hosts. This could be a game for few goals, so we will bet that there will be no more than 2.5 goals until the end of the duel.
