Match preview

Two sides in the midst of altogether contrasting spells of recent form are set to lock horns in Ligue 1 on Sunday, October 9th.

The clash in question will see Clermont Foot welcome Auxerre to The Stade Gabriel-Montpied.

Let’s first take a look at the recent endeavours of the former.

Clermont, all told, have enjoyed a remarkably balanced campaign to date. Across nine outings in France’s top-flight, to go along with a solitary draw, Les Lanciers have racked up four wins, as well as four defeats.

The last few weeks, though, have seen Pascal Gastien’s troops finally begin to find some consistency.

Across just one defeat in their last five, Clermont have rattled off a trio of victories, including in each of their last two, at the expense of Bordeaux and Ajaccio respectively.

Sunday’s hosts, in turn, have climbed into the top half of the Ligue 1 table, just four points off the European places.

And they will no doubt be confident of carrying such fine form beyond the upcoming round of fixtures in Ligue 1, ahead of a meeting with struggling Auxerre.

On the back of a solid opening to the season, Sunday’s visitors to the Gabriel-Montpied have seen their form absolutely fall off a cliff of late.

Prior to the club’s post-international break return to action last weekend, Auxerre had slipped to a quartet of successive defeats, dragged into the relegation dogfight in the process.

And even in arresting this monumental slide last time out, Les Bleu et Blanc were only able to stutter to a point at home to 19th-placed Brest owing to a late spot-kick on the part of M’Baye Niang.

We at 101 are therefore backing Clermont to ultimately emerge from proceedings as comfortable victors this weekend.
