Orleans – Clermont – Ligue 2 Prediction and Preview: 24th November 2017
The Orleans occupy the 13th position of Ligue 2, with 19 points accumulated in 15 championship games. The hosts are in a continuous drop in shape. After eliminating from the French Cup in front of Chartres, they suffered a 1-0 loss in the championship, Quevilly Rouen. Frenchman P. Bouby is the team’s top scorer in the championship, with 3 goals scored so far. Orleans has not won an official home game since September.
On the other side, Clermont is on the 5th position of the second league in France, the team having 26 points obtained after 15 stages. Guests are showing alternating developments lately. After a 1-0 defeat in the French Cup against Moulins Yzeure, they defeated Auxerre in the championship, scoring 1-0. Frenchman L. Ajorque is the best scorer in the championship, with 6 goals scored in 15 games. Clermont has never managed to set foot on the Orleans field in an official match.
The two teams prove inconsistent, so I expect a balanced, showless game.
