Clermont Foot vs Red Star
France Ligue 2
Date: Friday, 19th October 2018
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Gabriel Montpied (Clermont Ferrand).
Clermont Foot will host Red Star on Friday night in Ligue 2 as both teams will be looking to earn all three points.
The home side are in 10th place and there is already a 3 point gap to 9th so to keep touch with the top half of the table Clermont really need to register a win. This has been hard to come by of late and the team have gone their last 3 games without victory, although two of those matches have been draws.
Only Metz who are in 1st place have beaten Clermont at their ground and the team have gone their last 3 matches at home undefeated.
Red Star have just been promoted this season from the national leagues and it is showing. The club have lost 7 of their opening 10 games and are in 19th place. They did win their last game with a 2-0 victory over Ajaccio which stopped a four game losing run and they will hope to build on that.
However the truth is that Clermont Foot are a much better side than Ajaccio at present. Away from home Red Star have yet to win and have earned just 1 point from their last available 12.

Clermont Foot vs Red Star: Prediction
Clermont Foot will be expected to win this game and we believe that they can. They have been going through average form lately, drawing too many games. But playing Red Star at home is the perfect opportunity for them to get back on the winning track.
Red Star have done well in their last game with a rare win but it came at a bad time for them as there has now been a two week break and they needed to keep playing games at that point. A home win.
