Clermont vs Strasbourg Match Analysis and Prediction

On Wednesday, Clermont entertains Strasbourg at Stade Gabriel Montpied in their 21st game of the Ligue 1 season with a winless record thus far with a kickoff at 9 pm.

This past weekend, Lanciers sit just a point above relegation, following a 4-0 defeat to league leader Monaco. Strasbourg rallied with three goals in the final fifteen minutes, stunning Montpellier, 3-1.

Early in the second half on Sunday, some costly mistakes by Clermont opened the floodgates for Monaco, who took a 1-0 lead into the interval.

Les Monegasques outclassed their opponent in the second half and won away from home for an eighth time in their last nine domestic encounters.

After posting back-to-back clean sheets, Pascal Gastien and his team suffered a setback Wednesday, conceding three or more goals in a game for the sixth time in this domestic campaign.

Strasbourg’s momentum was not derailed by the loss of their top goalscorer through suspension, as the team remained unbeaten in league play in 2022, having now lost only once in their last nine domestic affairs.

The sending off of Montpellier substitute Elye Wahi seemed to change the outlook of Les Bleu et Blanc, who played a somewhat stagnant opening half of football, rarely threatening La Paillade before going up a man.
