Clermont Preview – French side to defend home turf?

There may not be too much to choose between Clermont and Leicester Tigers on Sunday.

Clermont have been in terrific recent form.

It’s been four wins in their last five Top 14 fixtures, which has been a big upturn.

Before that, they had lost four straight matches in all competitions.

That included a European Champions Cup defeat away at Ulster.

In the match outright for Sunday, Clermont are 20/21 for the win* (odds recorded 03:00 GMT on April 8th, 2022 at Unibet).

In their other two matches in the tournament this season, they lost at home against Ulster and beat Sale Sharks.

The win against Premiership side Sharks was in France.

Our betting prediction:
Clermont 1-5 winning margin

There has been a trend of home wins in European action when these two meet.

Six of the previous seven encounters have been won by the home team on the day.

The only exception was when Leicester won at Clermont in January 2006.

This looks like being a tight tough, battle.

The handicap line is thin with a Clermont -2 at the 10/11 quote* (odds recorded 03:00 GMT on April 8th, 2022 at Unibet).

Clermont have won their two previous home knockout ties against English teams.


Leicester Tigers Preview – Can Leicester gain an advantage?

Leicester won all four matches in the pool stage of this season’s Champions Cup.

The Premiership leaders have been in excellent form this season.

This is a huge test for them at the Stade Marcel-Michelin, however.

It may be about a bit of game management before getting back to Welford Road for the second leg.

In the match outright, the win for the Leicester Tigers is at 20/21 as well* (odds recorded 03:00 GMT on April 8th, 2022 at Unibet).

With a glance at current form, Leicester have won 7 of their last 10 matches in all competitions.

There have been wobbles for them on the road, however.

It’s just a W3 L4 record by the Tigers on the road in their last seven across all tournaments.
