It is obvious from these Clermont vs Le Havre odds that the bookies don't see a clear favourite, although Clermont are the expected winners by a small margin.

Given that Clermont are last in the standings and without a win for seven games in a row, it's clear that the only reason they are seen as slight favourites is because they have the home-court advantage.

Clermont preview: Relegation looming close

After failing to win in the last seven Ligue 1 rounds, Clermont remain cemented in the last place in the standings. With nine matches remaining in the season and Clermont eight points behind safety, it's clear that they won't get many more chances to secure survival, so this duel with Le Havre is a must-win for them.

Meanwhile, Maxime Gonalons is out with an injury, but the rest of the squad is fit and ready.

Le Havre preview: Can they win twice in a row?

After five games without a win in Ligue 1, Le Havre finally ended this poor run by beating Toulouse in the last round. Thanks to this win, they can breathe a bit easier, but not really relax since they're still dangerously close to the relegation zone, just two points ahead of the first team in it.

Another positive for the team is the fact that they have no injuries or suspension to worry about at the moment.

Player to watch: Shamar Nicholson

Clearly, it's been a rough season for Clermont as they sit in the last place in the standings and not many players from the team stood out, but Shamar Nicholson is arguably one of the few bright spots given that he's the team's top goalscorer in Ligue 1 with four goals.

Nicholson to score the first goal in the match?

While four goals Nicholson scored doesn't sound too impressive and it is a rather small sample size to make any conclusions, the Jamaican scored the first goal of the match on three occasions.
