Lorient vs Clermont: Our top betting tips

Clermont have made a good start to the new season; will they keep that up here? Find out with our Lorient vs Clermont match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

Clermont to take at least a point

To be fair, Lorient have done fairly well in recent weeks; they have no losses in their last four matches, having won two and drawn two of those games. However, Régis Le Bris's men will be going up against an in-form Clermont side. Clermont have four wins in their last five matches, including their last two; they've scored a total of nine goals in that five-game stretch, averaging almost two goals per game. Lorient may be the favourites here, but we think they'll find it really difficult to beat this Clermont side.

Going under 2.5 goals

Lorient and Clermont usually don't score plenty of goals when they meet; as a matter of fact, both teams have met eight times in the last five years, and all of those encounters saw less than three goals scored. In the same vein, both teams have been involved in a lot of low-scoring games these past few months; Lorient saw under 2.5 goals scored in seven of their last nine games, while the under hit in three of Clermont's last five matches. On that note, we shouldn't expect a lot of goals in this match.

Can Clermont continue their strong start?

These two only survived in Ligue 1 last season by the skin of their teeth but you wouldn't know that based on the way they've started the campaign. Both sides are averaging two points per game over the early season meaning that if either side can win this match, their good start will become a fantastic one!

Lorient had to come from behind to rescue a point against Toulouse last weekend; they are now unbeaten in their last four matches in all competitions, with two wins and two draws. Régis Le Bris's men will welcome Clermont to the Stade Yves Allainmat-Le Moustoir on Sunday afternoon; they'll look to extend their unbeaten run to five matches.

Lorient Predicted lineup – Mvogo, Kalulu, Laporte, Talbi, Goff, Feé, Abergel, Ouattara, Le Bris, Lauriente, Moffi

Clermont followed their disappointing 5:0 loss to Paris Saint Germain in matchday 1 with back-to-back wins against Nice and Reims; they've now won four of their last five games in all competitions. As a result, Clermont are fifth on the Ligue 1 table, just one point behind second-placed Marseille; they'll hope to go further up the table with their third consecutive win.

Clermont Predicted lineup – Diaw, Seidu, Wieteska, Ogier, Borges, Gonalons, Gastien, Khaoui, Cham, Allevinah, Andric
