Clermont – Another season fending off demotion ahead?

A finish of 17th in 2021-22 ensured a second successive season at this level for Pascal Gastien’s team, defying expectations on their Ligue 1 debuts simply by avoiding the drop. They would put four points between themselves and the bottom three by the season’s end, despite failing to take any points from three of their final four fixtures (W1 L3), and have it all to do second time round if they’re to repeat the trick.

Losing a player who contributed 50% of their goals last term, either through putting the ball in the net or laying on the assist, is a huge blow, with forward Mohamed Bayo departing an attack which managed a modest 38 goals in 38 Ligue 1 games. Starting with a home game against the champions, trounced 6-1 in this fixture last season, also feels like they are giving the rest of the league a head start.

Key Stat: Les Lanciers would win only one of their last eight Ligue 1 home games (W1 D2 L5), while all of the last five contests at Stade Gabriel Montpied saw both teams score.

PSG – Parisians already looking ominous?

Reclaiming the Ligue 1 title from Lille wouldn’t suffice for Mauricio Pochettino whose failures outside of league competition – failing to win either domestic cup as well as crashing out in the last-sixteen of the Champions League – meant he was ruthlessly dispensed with. Christophe Galtier arrives with proven pedigree in Ligue 1, though has won only one of his three opening round fixtures as a manager (W1 D2).

Improving upon that record should be straightforward here. PSG were scintillating last week, warming up for the new campaign with a comprehensive 4-0 victory against Nantes to secure an 11th Trophee des Champions. They’ve now won seven and lost none of their past ten competitive games, netting two or more on nine occasions during this spell. Wrapping up 2021-22 with a 5-0 rout of Metz in Paris.

Key Stat: PSG were at their most vulnerable away from home last season. Whereas the Parisians remained unbeaten throughout 2021-22’s Ligue 1 season at the Parc des Princes, on the road they succumbed to four losses as they won just 53% of matches (W10 D5 L4).

Christophe Galtier couldn’t have hand picked a more plum first round fixture in which to get his Paris Saint-Germain Ligue 1 tenure up and running. If he had done though, he might have scheduled this for Paris as opposed to here in Clermont-Ferrand. Not that Saturday’s venue is expected to cause them much problems: Les Parisiens scored six on their most recent – and so far only – visit to Stade Gabriel Montpied.


Clermont Vs Paris Saint-Germain – Key Facts:

  • Saturday sees just a third ever competitive meeting between Clermont, 17 in Ligue 1 last term, and PSG, who are the reigning French league champions. The latter won home and away last season, including a 6-1 thrashing in Clermont-Ferrand.
  • Clermont ended last season losing three of their final four league games and winning only once at home across their last eight outings (W1 D2 L5) at Stade Gabriel Montpied.
  • PSG are unbeaten in nine Ligue 1 matches (W6 D3). They would win three of the past four away Ligue 1 games, all of which saw them score at least three with two coming by way of a 4+ win margin.


That 6-1 scoreline, in April of this year, brought the scores between the sides across their pair of meetings in 2021-22 to 10-1, in favour of PSG, naturally. So, it is pleasantly surprising to see we can get odds of 3/4 about PSG winning at HT and FT, 4/5 on PSG -1.75 Asian Handicap, and 31/20 that the visitors win both halves. All three bets obliged across both encounters last term and this should be another one-sided duel.
