Clermont – Lorient : Preview & Prediction
Clermont begins to get in the ranks by moving away from the places giving access to the Play-Offs following a bad series of 4 games without a win. The current 8th in Ligue 2 is now 6 lengths from the last place (5th) to participate in the roadblocks to the Ligue 1. The Auvergnats, hung by Le Havre at home (0-0) on 28 last January, have just lined up 3 defeats in a row at Sochaux (2-1), against Valenciennes (0-1) at home and Auxerre (1-0), three formations that are in the second half of the table. FC Lorient intends to take advantage of the misformed Clermont to continue its excellent series and why not record a sixth consecutive success. Les Merlus have just beaten Valenciennes (2-1) away, AC Ajaccio (1-0) at Moustoir, Grenoble Foot 38 (1-0) in Isère and Red Star (2-1) home. The Breton club, thanks to this series, has found the podium and a 3rd place he will seek to defend. The Lorient move to Clermont with the intention to take at least 1 point.
Clermont is on a losing streak of 3 straight.
