Conclusion & Betting analysis

Interesting clash here between two good teams and it’s actually 7th vs 4th in the table. Paris FC have endured a really difficult fixture list recently and also suffered some injuries which have de-railed their campaign. But I sense they could rebound soon and I still believe they are one of the better teams in this division. Clermont are also a team I rate pretty highly and this is a hard match to predict. I do think the home team are slightly short though and that Paris FC are suddenly underestimated a bit. This could maybe end a 1-1 draw or something and it will be a good match to watch but hard to bet on.

Prediction: 1-1

Recommended bet: None
