The match

With only two matches remaining in the French Ligue 1 season, Strasbourg and Clermont Foot face off at the Stade de la Meinau with each team still after their respective league targets. Strasbourg, currently in sixth-place, are seeking a European continental football qualification spot as they trail fifth-place Rennes by just two points. Le Racing have been one of the surprise teams of the 2021/22 campaign and a sixth-place finish would represent their best finish in more than 40 years after finishing fifth in the 1979/80 season. They come up against a Clermont Foot team that has all but secured themselves top flight football for next season with a five point lead over 18th place St Etienne. The hosts are coming off a 1-0 away win against Brest while the visitors triumphed 2-1 over Montpellier in their last match.

Strasbourg’s excellent run in recent weeks has put them in a great position to challenge for Europe with their strong home form acting as the catalyst. The blue-and-whites have a home record of 10 wins, five draws and only three defeats with an impressive goal differential of +17. They are on a current eight match unbeaten run at home and have only lost once in their last 14 Ligue 1 matches both home and away. Strasbourg rightly come into this game as significant favorites over a Clermont Foot team that lost 10 of their 18 away matches while giving up a -19 goal differential on the road. With safety all but guaranteed for the visitors, expect Strasbourg to come out as the more focused side with more to play for as they try to cap off an already remarkable season with a UEFA berth.

Key Statistics

  • Six of Strasbourg’s 10 home wins have come by a winning margin of at least two goals.
  • Clermont Foot have lost six of their 10 away matches by a margin of two or more goals.
  • Strasbourg won the reverse fixture 2-0 at Clermont in January.
  • Strasbourg have started matches strongly in recent fixtures, scoring first in six of their last seven while Clermont have conceded first in five of their last seven.

The bet of our experts

We’re going to back Strasbourg on the -1 Asian Handicap as our bet for this one. This means that the hosts must win by a margin of at least two goals for our bet to be a winner, while a one goal margin of victory would result in our stake being returned. Strasbourg have been excellent at home this season and have proven themselves capable of controlling matches as evidenced by their high number of victories by a multiple goal margin. Clermont Foot have struggled on their travels this season and possess the third worst away goal differential. The hosts should be able to walk away with a comfortable 2-0 win here.
