Reims vs Clermont: top free betting tips
Reims and Clermont go up against each other in the second round of Ligue 1 at Stade Auguste-Delaune on Sunday, 20 August. The Red and Whites have lost the previous game against Marseille and the Lancers tasted defeat against Monaco.
Match result prediction: Clermont to win
Clermont has defeated Reims in three of the previous five H2Hs while losing only one. The Lancers have also won three of the previous five road fixtures in Ligue 1, together with one defeat and a draw. On the other hand, the Red and Whites have gone winless in the previous five league outings and suffered three defeats in that course. Therefore, we back Clermont to fancy their chances and take away three points from this game.
Total goals prediction: over 2.5 goals
Three of the previous five H2Hs of these two sides at Stade Auguste-Delaune have finished with Over 2.5 Goals. Reims have scored an average of just one goal per game in the previous five league outings. However, Clermont has rattled the net ten times in the same number of games. On the other hand, Reims’ defence has also been napping as they conceded 12 goals in the aforestated period. Therefore, we can expect a total of at least three goals in this game.
Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Clermont
Reims have been limited to scoring only one game in three of the previous five matches in Ligue 1. Reims have also struggled at the back end and conceded multiple goals in each game during the same course. On the other hand, Clermont has notched two or more goals in four of the previous fixtures in the league. Defensively, the Lancers have leaked six goals in the same number of away Ligue 1 outings. Hence, we believe to see a 1-2 lead for Clermont in this encounter.
