Best Odds and Top Predictions for Clermont vs Lyon

Clermont's stunning winning streak was stopped last weekend while Lyon was involved in one of the unlikeliest comebacks in recent memory.

Check out the latest French Ligue predictions at our dedicated Ligue 1 betting tips page.

Both Teams to Score

It seems that the BTTS option goes with the territory for both teams in this Clermont vs Lyon prediction. Clermont has played three games out of their past five with either team getting on the scoresheet while Lyon is on a five-match BTTS streak with some stunning results when it comes to the number of goals being scored. Regarding their h2h record, it goes with the flow of things as mentioned, the history recognizes only four previous meetings between these teams, and only one didn't have both teams putting in the work and scoring at least a goal. Coincidentally, that was the first match they played against one another earlier this season which was won by Clermont with a single goal as the difference.

Over 2.5 Goals

We are going with the same sentiment for the second prediction in this Clermont vs Lyon duel. Three of their previous four encounters went over the 2.5 goals line and as far as their current form is concerned, Lyon has been going strong when it comes to covering this bet, they had at least three goals on the scoreboard in five straight matches while Clermont is a bit modest than that, they had two games with over 2.5 goals. For the season overall, Clermont is in the bottom three of ‘over' teams with 15 of those matches in 34 played thus far while Lyon's number is 20.

Match Information, Preview, and Clermont vs Lyon Lineups

Clermont

After winning five straight matches, Clermont drew at Auxerre last weekend. The home side has done well this season proving doubters that they can fight with the best teams in Ligue 1. The original goal was to avoid relegation at all costs, but Clermont has done much more than that by winning some tough games and accumulating far more points than anyone expected at the start of the campaign. Maxime Gonalons is injured while Mateusz Wieteska is suspended.

Provisional lineup: Diaw, Seidu, Ogier, Caufriez, Allevinah, Magnin, Gastien, Neto Borges, Khaoui, Rashani, Kyei.

Lyon

They were losing 1-4 against Montpellier last weekend and managed to make an incredible comeback by spectacularly winning 5-4. But, the ones who followed Lyon this season were not surprised even with that unlikely scenario. Lyon has been a type of up-and-down team throughout the season. The visiting team still has a chance to break into the top five in the standings which would open a door to play in Europe next season. Wesley Said and Steven Fortes are injured for the guest side.

Provisional lineup: Lopes, Tagliafico, Lovren, Diomande, Gusto, Lepenant, Mendes, Barcola, Caqueret, Cherki, Lacazette.

Player to Watch: Alexandre Lacazette

We have been talking about Lacazette the entire season, but he is worth mentioning once again after scoring four goals against Montpellier which brought his season tally to 24 goals which is tied for the best mark in the league.
