I believe here we will see goals.
Clermont is a good team who most of the time plays offensive football. Is true in last home game they scored a single goal but in that game against Creteil were plenty of chances to score on both sides, each team have had 2 posts while Clemront missed a penalty. So with some luck that game should have been finished in a big over ..but only 1-0 for Clermont. Than Clermont played away at Dijon and were demolished 1-4. Was a game solved rapid by Dijon couple Tavares - Said, with Tavares scoring his first 3 goals on the season (the most rapid triple in Ligue 2) while having an assist to Said goal. But what we must keep in mind was Clermont have in the field almost all 4 starters in defense and conceded 4 goals while for this game will miss 2 important defenders Salze and Rivieyran. Upfront they are quite ok with Ligue 2 best striker Diedhiou and massive Dugimont.
On the other side Valenciennes is scoring and conceding enough in order to make me choice this option. they are coming after a thrilling 2-2 against rock bottom Nimes, scoring twice when playing in 10 men. But a silly defensive mistake made near to end of the time and nstead of a win the game ended 2-2. Overall they performed well but NImes were m ore dangerous and missed 3 points here (being in lead and playing with one extra man for an entire 2nd half). They have an youg team with rapid players up front as small Slidja (who missed in game against Nimes) and Nguette plus Butin. So I see them scoring tonite.
These to teams played each others few weeks ago in French Ligue Cup and Clermont won at that time 3-1. O expect another similar game with plenty of goals so I back over here. gl
