Niort vs Clermont Foot Preview and Prediction

Niort vs Clermont Foot
France Ligue 2
Date: Friday 3rd August 2018
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Rene Gaillard (Niort).

Last season Niort was always enjoyable to watch even if they did finish in the bottom half of the league, and fans will be hoping that their side can entertain again this season.

Last weekend Niort went to Red Star and got a 2-1 win so that would have boosted their confidence coming into this game. Clermont Foot could only draw 0-0 against Chateauroux with some sections of the crowd booing and being quite displeased with the home team’s performance.

With some bookmakers Clermont Foot have been made the favourites to win this game but the reality is that most bookmakers cannot separate the teams and they have the same price to win quoted. Clermont Foot did not really turn up last weekend and so the question is will they be able to this week?

Niort vs Clermont Foot: Prediction

Niort have more confidence coming into this game, they also have a good record at their own stadium against Clermont Foot who have not won here for 14 years.

We won’t put our full trust in the home win because the price on Clermont Foot is shortening so there is a reason for that. Instead we will opt for the double chance with the advantage being for the home side.
