Clermont – Niort : Preview & Prediction
Clermont does not abstain in this championship and is only 6 units of a place on the podium. But the Auvergne club has missed points on the road with his 2 defeats in the last 3 days in Le Havre (2-1) and on the field of AC Ajaccio (2-1) last weekend. But Clermont is counting on his good run at the Stade Gabriel Montpied to keep his goal in sight. At home, the Clermontois remain on 2 brilliant victories in front of Reims (2-1) and against Nancy (2-0) … The pass of 3 against Niort? This formation Niort, 14th, has not validated its maintenance but his lead over the barrage is 8 points, so comfortable. After months of January and February very complicated, the Chamois found colors in March and scored 7 out of 12 points in the game following 2 successes Quevilly-Rouen (2-1) and Bourg-Péronnas (1-0 ) then 1 draw in front of Sochaux (1-1) last weekend. Over this period of a month, the protected Faure had lost only once against Lorient (1-2) at the Stade René Gaillard.
Clermont is solid at home: 9 wins, 3 draws against 3 defeats.
Niort has already conceded 8 defeats in his 15 trips in L2 this season.
Clermont remains on 6 matches without defeat at home (4 wins and 2 draws) and is undefeated since December 15, 2017 at Gabriel Montpied stadium.
Clermont has not abandoned his dreams of climbing in L1 and is still in contact, 6 points from 3rd place.
The first leg ended in a one-goal draw all over.
Impressive at home, the Clermontois should not give points against Chamois in net renewal of form but will not avoid a defeat in Auvergne.
