Clermont Foot vs Montpellier
French Ligue 1
Date: 6 November 2022, Sunday
Kick-off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade Gabriel Montpied (Clermont-Ferrand).
Montpellier continued their dreadful series of results last Sunday by suffering a 3-0 defeat away at Rennes. It was the team’s fifth defeat on the spin in Ligue 1, the one that dropped them further into the bottom half of the standings.
Montpellier parted ways with Olivier Dall’Oglio two weeks ago but they are still struggling badly to keep things quiet defensively.
Interim manager Romain Pitau is clearly not an ideal solution at the moment. Montpellier allowed five goals in the previous two games against Lyon and Rennes.
They will have a somewhat easier fixture on paper in Matchday No 14 as they travel to Stade Gabriel Montpied to take on mid-table Clermont Foot.
Clermont have been much more consistent throughout the season. They lost just one of the last five league games.
They looked decent in the last weekend’s 1-1 draw away at Nantes. Nonetheless, it is very interesting to note that Clermont Foot did suffer two odd home defeats to the likes of Troyes and Brest (1-3 each) in the recent period.
Last but not least, we must mention that Pascal Gastien’s men fancy attacking-minded football these days. Each of the last six games they played in Ligue 1 saw goals scored at both ends.
