Clermont vs Lyon Free Match Predictions and Tips
Clermont has avoided relegation as they currently stand five points clear of the relegation zone and only a game left. But can they hold Lyon to another grueling encounter in this second encounter of the season? Our best two predictions for this game are:
Lyon to score first @ 1/2 (1.50)
Lyon is our favourite team in this matchup to find the net first. In the last five assignments, Lyon boasts a better scoring record than Clermont. The visitors scored in all their last five games, bagging a total of 14 goals in the process. On the other hand, Clermont hasn’t had as much impressive scoring record, finding the net five times and failing to do so in two games within that time. It is why we expect the visitors to lead any minute in this match.
Lyon to win @ 4/5 (1.80)
Lyon is our best pick to win this Ligue 1 game. It is the last game of the season and with both sides safe in the top flight, everything boils down to supremacy battle. This is also the second encounter ever between these teams. The reverse encounter was a thrilling game that recorded 6 goals in a 3-3 outcome. However, based on recent results, we expect the away team to get a resounding victory in this last game of the season.

Clermont vs Lyon Match Preview
It was a surprise to many that promoted side, Clermont, held Lyon to a 3-3 draw in the reverse game. Notably, it was also the first ever meeting between these teams. With that, fans of both teams expect another grueling match when these teams lock horns in the last game of the season.
Clermont is now safe in the top flight. A loss in this game wouldn’t have much impact on their survival chances as they currently sit 16th and 5 points above relegation playoffs spot. On the flip-side, Lyon is 8th and has no chance of securing a top five place. All taken into consideration, this will be more of a supremacy game. And if we base our predictions on recent performances of these teams, Lyon is undoubtedly the clear favourites to bag all points. The visitors have a better scoring record and form in recent games than Clermont hence likely to win the game.
