Clermont vs Niort (By: Alcuni)
Clermont – Niort
Clermont had a good evolution in first part of the season, collecting 29 points being near to the top 5. They lost easily some points during the campaign, especially vs GFC and Red Star at home and vs Ajaccio on the road; with 6 more points they could have been finish the year on podium. Some good results keeping in mind they lost some important players comparing with the previous season. A balanced team who put problems almost to all team in the league, expecting to be at same level also in 2nd part of the season. So far, they signed with Berthomier (ex-Troyes) who played to little this year.
Niort was one of the pleasant surprises of the first part of the season, finishing in the promotion play-off spots, on 5th spot with same number of points, 32, as 3rd spot. A team with a good defense (16 goals conceded) and an exponential striker Dona N’Doh who scored 11 goals from the total of 21 scored by Niort in first 19 rounds. As Clermont, also Niort lost important players in pre-season that’s why their position in table is remarkable. Their coach was sack due to a conflict with one of manager team and for the moment in charge being caretaker Faure. Conte saw a red card in cup game Niort lost at Gignac and will miss this trip. Also, we can notice absence of Rivieyran, Lebeau and Koyalipou.
Well I don’t get the odds for this game. Is true Clermont lost a single home game but still drew 5 times. Also Niort lost on the road against top teams but took a lot of points. I see a more balanced game that the bookies are see and perhaps a new home draw for Clermont. Back the draw. gl
