Kick-off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade Gabriel Montpied.
Clermont Foot take on visiting rivals Auxerre in this Ligue 1 clash on Sunday at Stade Gabriel Montpied.
Auxerre has failed to mark an impression upon returning to the elite class of French football in this season. They had a decent start, but failed to maintain the same further.
Their last win was against Strasbourg five games ago. Since then, they drew one and lost four to push their position outside the top half in the league standings.
Auxerre currently sit at the 14th spot with a total of 9 points. Do also note that they had let in a total of 12 goals over the course of the past 5 Ligue 1 games.
Meanwhile, Clermont Foot were counted among the worst in the French top flight the past season. They were lucky to have avoided relegation to the Ligue 2 in their very first top flight run the past season.
Going on, they have started off with a demotivating 0-5 defeat against the French biggies PSG at home. Since then, they won four, drew one and lost three to bag a total of 13 points for positioning at the 9th spot in the table.
