Clermont Foot vs Niort
France – Ligue 2

Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Gabriel Montpied (Clermont-Ferrand).
Goals are expected in plenty, as two teams, eager for points take on each other. Current form fails to pick out a clear winner for this fixture, and likely, it would be safe to count on the off-performing defenses to once again come up short.

Clermont Foot vs Niort Prediction
Clermont split points with Ajaccio the last match-day. The former was on the road, and clearly had been on the back foot, but still managed to score the equalizer in the latter half after conceding in the 32nd minute.
Niort meanwhile, played things close to the chest, at home, as they waited till the 79th minute to score the winner against Rodez. The match had ended with a 2-1 scoreline.
As these two take on each other this Friday, consider their current forms, and desperation to put an end to their respective dismal runs. In fact, Clermont failed to keep a clean sheet in 14 of their last 17 overall games, and in the last seven at their home. Meanwhile, Niort failed to keep their nets clean in ten of their former eleven match-ups, and in 11 of their last 13 on the road.
Moreover, a total of 15 goals had come in the prior three h2h clashes alone, and all three saw both teams scoring twice or more.
Taking into account these above-mentioned observations, along with their eagerness to somehow get back into form, expect a goal-fest between these two struggling squads.
