Clermont vs Lyon – Prediction, and Match Preview

Clermont vs Lyon – Following a 1-1 draw with AJ Auxerre in Ligue 1, Clermont Foot enters this game. Clermont Foot had 54% of the possession in that game and 4 of their 9 shots on goal were successful.

Saîf-Eddine Khaoui scored for Clermont Foot in the 54th minute. Auxerre, their adversaries, had 11 shots at goal with 4 of them being successful. The goal for AJ Auxerre was scored by Isaak Touré (36′).

In their last six games, Clermont Foot hasn’t had any trouble scoring, doing so each time they’ve taken the field. During that time, they’ve managed to score 10 while only having 4 goals scored against them.

In their previous three home league games, Clermont Foot had not suffered a loss. In their most recent game, Lyon defeated Montpellier 5-4 to move to the top of Ligue 1.

In that contest, Lyon had a 70% possession rate and eight of its sixteen shots on goal were successful. Alexandre Lacazette (31′, 59′, 82′, 100′) and Dejan Lovren (70′) both scored goals for Lyon.

Montpellier made 12 attempts at goal, scoring on six of them. Montpellier received a goal from Elye Wahi (40′, 41′, 54′, 55′). Prior to this match, Lyon had been a threat up forward, scoring 13 goals in their previous six games.

Although their manager Laurent Blanc will undoubtedly view that as encouraging, Lyon may also strengthen their defense after allowing goals in six of the same games.

In any case, only time will tell if that pattern holds true during this game. Lyon hasn’t lost in any of their last 5 away league games coming into this encounter.

Clermont vs Lyon – Betting Analysis

In their most recent league encounter, which took place on January 1, 2023, on Match Day 17 of Ligue 1, Lyon defeated Clermont Foot 0–1. On that particular day, Lyon had 60% of the possession and 2 of its 13 shots were on goal.

Clermont Foot made 13 tries at goal for their adversaries, scoring on three of them. (87′) Muhammed Cham scored. Stéphanie Frappart served as the official.

Pascal Gastien, the manager of Clermont Foot, will be grateful that he has no concerns about his players’ condition going into this matchup because the entire injury-free roster is available for selection.

Mory Diaw, Florent Ogier, Alidu Seidu, Maximiliano Caufriez, Jim Allevinah, Yohann Magnin, Johan Gastien, Neto Borges, Saif-Eddine Khaoui, Elba Rashani, and Grejohn Kyei appear to be the players that Clermont Foot should start in the game using the 3-4-2-1 configuration.

The Lyon manager Laurent Blanc does not have any fitness concerns at all going into this match because his team is fully healthy and prepared.

We anticipate Lyon to start Anthony Lopes, Malo Gusto, Sinaly Diomande, Dejan Lovren, Nicolas Tagliafico, Corentin Tolisso, Thiago Mendes, Maxence Caqueret, Bradley Barcola, Alexandre Lacazette, and Mathis Rayan Cherki in a 4-3-3 formation.

Although we believe Clermont Foot are capable of breaking through the Lyon lineup’s defense, a single goal may not be enough to prevent a loss.
