Clermont vs Reims (By: Alcuni)
Clermont – Reims
Unbeaten in 2018 with 4 wins and 4 draws, Clermont climbed in the table on 5th spot just behind AC Ajaccio and Paris FC, teams which probably will be involved till the end in the 2nd/3rd spot battle. Playing without any pressure but not making great games all the time, Gastien’s boys collecting point(s) after point(s) and will have no doubt a relaxed end of the season. Still a difficult end of the season for them, after Reims they will play in last 4 rounds with 3 teams which probably will fight for promotion at that time: Brest, Paris FC and Nimes plus Ajaccio and LeHavre in the coming days. So, quite a tough schedule which will really test Clermont.
Reims is dominating the Ligue 2 being the first in table with a big margin for this championship: 14 points. They collected so far 63 points and if they will keep the stroke perhaps will collect at the end of the season one of the highest number of points from recent years. Didn’t see recent a team dominating the season in such manner. True is in 2018 they have 6 wins in 8 games but all were against team from the lower part of the table. When played versus top teams they lost 0-1 at home versus Lorient and took a 0-0 versus Brest on the road. And a difficult schedule will come so they must not waste the points versus teams which not be fully involved in promotion battle in order to stay safe and finish first this season. They recovered Carraso, Bouhours and Siebatcheu for this trip.
Two inform teams, playing without too much pressure, hope to offer us an attractive football, a game which will end all square. Back the draw. gl
