Clermont – Lens : Preview & Prediction
Clermont, stuck in the soft belly of the classification (10th), is a solid team and difficult to maneuver. Especially in his stadium Gabriel Montpied where only FC Metz managed to win (3-2). At home, the club Auvergnat remains on 2 success against Orleans (3-0) and Beziers (2-0), admittedly two teams in the second part of the draw, but had been forced to draw against Gazélec Ajaccio (1-1), Red Star (0-0) and Brest (2-2) a few weeks ago. Winner at Bobigny (2-0) this weekend in the Coupe de France, Clermont has erased part of his heavy setback on the field of Paris FC (3-0) on the last day of Ligue 2. The RC Lens, which third place on the podium, is undefeated since November 10 and has just qualified for the 1 / 32nd finals of the Coupe de France after his success at Versailles (4-2) this Saturday. The “Sang et Or”, before this qualification, remained on 2 draws ahead of Grenoble Foot 38 (0-0) and Lorient (2-2) and 1 interesting success against Brest (2-1) at home.
