Clermont Foot vs Brest
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 23 October 2022
Kick-off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade Gabriel Montpied.
Brest are easily the worst team in the French top flight this season. They are placed bottom-most in the table, and it goes without saying that whoever takes on them will be default considered as the favorites for the day. Clermont are at home, and they just cannot let this chance go to waste.
They are placed eighth in the table at the moment, and need a surplus of four points to climb level with the fifth-placed Rennes.
It is to be noted that they lost just four times all through the competition, and only two of these came at home. And of the two defeats, one came against toppers and defending champions PSG.
Moreover, the eighth-placed team also have another aspect to consider. The sixth-placed Monaco and the seventh-placed Lille are locking horns with each other this match-day, and at least one of the two will drop points.
The team might not get another chance to shoot straight into the top-most tier.
Meanwhile, Brest are placed 20th in a table of 20, and only once have they won through the competition. Not only did they lose four of their previous five overall games, but they also are one of the three teams in the Ligue 1 to remain winless in the past five fixtures.
By the looks of things, expect a win for Clermont Foot this Sunday at their home.
