On Sunday afternoon, Clermont and Nice will square off at the Stade Gabriel Montpied as the French top division action continues. The hosts will be looking to build on last weekend’s resounding victory in Ligue 1 victory.
Nice has more talent in their ranks, so we expect them to remain the favorite at Stade Gabriel Montpied.
In addition, during the previous Ligue 1 season, Clermont Foot had lost nine of 19 league games played at home. The away win is currently available at odds of 2.05.
Clermont Vs Nice Betting Tips
Clermont had not anticipated a humiliating 5-0 loss to PSG at home to begin the new Ligue 1 season. This crushing defeat also marked Clermont’s third straight league loss in the top flight after back-to-back losses at the end of the previous campaign.
Clermont’s defeats to Strasbourg and Lyon could potentially push them into the play-off spot for relegation. Still, fortunately for Sunday’s hosts, Saint Etienne could not take advantage of Clermont’s mistakes as Saint Etienne lost all six of their remaining games.
However, Clermont was able to get over that embarrassing loss on the first day of the season as they rebounded with a crucial 4-2 victory away at Reims, and they now return to their Stade Gabriel Montpied for this Sunday’s matchup with Nice.
Nice’s Ligue 1 campaign has gotten off to a mediocre start as the visitors have drawn both of their first two games this season, splitting the points with Toulouse and Strasbourg in 1-1 draws.
However, Nice’s Ligue 1 performances have generally been uneven, and this has ultimately cost the visitors in both the Champions League and the Europa League qualifying stages.
Nice has put together a three-match unbeaten streak in the French top flight before this Sunday’s trip to Clermont. Nice finished last season in fifth place, which meant participation in the Europa Conference League this season.
This run includes a 3-2 victory away at Reims on the final day of last season, which helped Nice hold off Strasbourg for the fifth-place finish. However, road performance needs to improve if Nice is taken seriously as a top three or four contender this season.
Nice has only won twice in their last nine road games, but they have a strong record against Clermont, having won two of the previous three meetings.
