Clermont vs PSG: prediction for the Ligue 1 match
Clermont are currently on a three-game winning streak, all of these victories were recorded in friendly matches though. Pascal Gastien's men managed to beat Toulouse (1:0) and Montpellier (2:0). Before that, team was not so successful. Gastien's lads finished the previous Ligue 1 season at 17th position, just one step away from the relegation zone.
PSG have just put up another strong season in Ligue 1. Team claimed the title, meeting no resistance at all. However, Parisians were unable to achieve success in the Champions League, losing in the first play-off round. Paris club also failed to win the French Cup. After these failures club's board decided to sack Mauricio Pochettino. Argentinian specialist was replaced by Christophe Galtier, who achieved success with OGC Nice.
In each of five latest matches PSG won the first half
In three latest matches of Clermont no more than two goals were scored
Two of three latest matches of Clermont finished with a 2:0 score
We are not expecting a success from Clermont in this match. Club barely avoided relegation from Ligue 1 in the previous season. PSG will try to satisfy their fans with a high-scoring performance, so we are expecting a massive victory from the Parisians.
Our prediction - Asian handicap (-2) on PSG
We think that Galtier's team will secure a clear victory. PSG looked great during the pre-season, they win all of their matches. Clermont were not looking so impressive. We are expecting goals only from the visitors tonight.
Our second bet is on at least one club to not score
