Clermont Foot vs Le Havre
France – Ligue 2.
Date: Monday, 28th January 2019.
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Stade Gabriel Montpied (Clermont-Ferrand).

The team managed by Pascal Gastien are still in contention for promotion to Ligue 1. They will meet Le Havre on Monday with an aim to reduce the points between the toppers Metz.

Clermont has been excellent in defense conceding h=just 17 goals in 21 matches so far. They are equal on points with Lens who are third but goal difference needs to improve. Currently, they are on a 3 match win streak in the league. The only loss recently came against Marignane in the Coupe de France, which went to penalties.

Including 5 wins, they are unbeaten at home in their last 9 competitive fixtures. Six of those games had less than 2.5 goals at the full time. With such power at home, the Dean Club has to be careful on Monday.

The Sky and Navy are fresh from a Cup defeat to Vitre which finished 3-0. But they are on a 2 match winning run in the league. But far from home they have lost 2 and are winless in the last 3 matches. Less than 2.5 goals came in 4 of those 5 matches away from home.

This match promises to be a close game based on the h2h stats. But the home advantage will definitely play a part in the outcome of this game.
