Chateauroux v Clermont Foot
French Ligue 2
Date: Friday, 17 May 2019
Kick-Off 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Stade Gaston Petit (Chateauroux).
Mid-table rivals Chateauroux and Clermont Foot will battle it out in the last round of the French Ligue 2 on Friday evening at Stade Gaston Petit. Teams head into the match in completely opposite spirits. The hosts caught the right form in the very finish of the campaign. They won three on thee spin in the competition and will have a decent chance to complete the thread and make it four here against out-of-form Clermont Foot side.
La Berri won four and drew one of past five league matches. Such spell of form moved them entirely away from the relegation scrap. They even have the opportunity to end the season in the top half of the standings with another victory here against Clermont.
Chateauroux v Clermont Foot: Head-to-head
Overall, Chateauroux were the more successful team historically as they lead the tie by two wins coming into 33rd encounter with Clermont Foot.
Nevertheless, the hosts are winless in past seven ties with Clermont, four of which they lost.
This term’s clash saw a goalless draw in late-July last year at Stade Gabriel Montpied.
Chateauroux v Clermont Foot: Prediction
The visitors were in completely opposite shape in the last couple of months. They are winless in past eight league affairs, a streak which dropped them down to 10th place in the league ladder. Pascal Gastien’s men lost last two ties to Lens (1-0) and Troyes (2-4).
Clermont scored only two goals in past four away fixtures in the league. They will likely struggle for creativity in the final third here as well if we know Chateauroux shipped only one goal in last three league matches at Stade Gaston Petit.
The home win has to be the way to go, while you won’t make a mistake backing the Under 2.5 goals FT as an alternative bet either. After all, only one of last five head to head affairs between the two sides saw three or more goals scored.
