📊 Form Guide
It’s been all too rare in recent times that Clermont Foot have kept a clean sheet. The reality is that Clermont Foot have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 matches, letting in 6 goals in the process. Still, we will just have to wait and see if that pattern will be sustained in this game.
Their prior results show that Clermont Foot:
- have not emerged victorious against FC Lorient in their previous 3 matches in the league.
- are undefeated in their previous 4 league matches at home.
FC Lorient have regularly broken through opposing defences in their most recent fixtures, having scored 8 times in their previous 6 matches. This doesn’t mask the fact that FC Lorient have been somewhat leaky at the back, having also been scored against in 6 of those same outings.
Looking at their past form shows that FC Lorient:
- haven't been defeated by Clermont Foot when they've played them away from home in the last 5 league matches. Away fans have certainly had plenty to cheer about.
- are unbeaten in their last 2 away league matches.
