Clermont vs. Lens Match Analysis and Prediction

A spot in the relegation table remains for Clermont this week in Ligue 1 when they play host to Lens. The match is scheduled for Wednesday at the Stade Gabriel Montpeid, with kickoff at 11 pm.

Lens has now dropped to fifth after a small slump in form, while the Clermont now occupies the relegation playoff place with just a one-point lead over the bottom two.

Following their promotion from the second tier, Clermont caught eyes at the beginning of the Ligue 1 campaign, defeating Bordeaux and Troyes and drawing with Lyon in their first three games.

With European football back on the mind of French football fans, Clermont will be looking to make an impact this season.

Clermont have endured a miserable 13-game sequence since their first two games of the season, losing ten of those games.

While they will be keen to end that run against Les Bleus, they will know that Lens also has something to play for as they seek to bounce back from successive losses.

On the other hand, Lens climbed to the top of Ligue 1 finely at the start of the season but have since slipped down the table.

In addition, Lens, who have lost their last two games, don’t turn up in fourth place, but they are still only a point off the summit.
