Clermont Foot controlled 60% of the ball during that contest and attempted 14 goals, two of which were successful. Johan Gastien (3′) was their lone scorer.

ESTAC made 9 efforts on goal with 4 of them being on target at the other end. Renaud Ripart (83′) and Mama Baldé (23′, 54′) both tallied. Jérôme Brisard served as the official.

Only one player’s fitness is a worry for ESTAC manager Patrick Kisnorbo out of an otherwise full roster, so there aren’t many personnel concerns. Due to Achilles tendon issues, Florian Tardieu is out.

Gauthier Gallon, Erik Palmer-Brown, Adil Rami, Yoann Salmier, Thierno Baldé, Lucien Agoumé, Rominigue Kouamé, Papa Ndiaga Yade, Rony Lopes, Wilson Odobert, and Mama Baldé will start the first half for ESTAC in a likely 3-4-2-1 configuration.

The only fitness worry for Clermont Foot manager Pascal Gastien is due to a squad that is largely at full strength. Komnen Andric (Pubalgia) is unable to play in this match.

We have a hunch that Clermont Foot will go with a 3-4-2-1 scheme, selecting players like Mory Diaw, Cheick Oumar Konate, Mateusz Wieteska, Neto Borges, Alidu Seidu, Maxime Gonalons, Johan Gastien, Jim Allevinah, Saif-Eddine Khaoui, Elba Rashani, and Grejohn Kyei. We predict that ESTAC and Clermont Foot may struggle to score goals in this situation.
