Tip Strasbourg Alsace - Clermont
Prediction published on May 11, 2022 at 12:54 PM - Modified on May 11, 2022 at 12:55 PM
A slot in next season’s Europa League is achievable for Strasbourg and this will guide their strategy for their next game, when they host Clermont in Ligue 1. Strasbourg go into this game in fifth place with 60 points while Clermont come into it with 36 points. The hosts have managed just two wins in their last five matches but their only loss in 14 matches was against Lille. They are currently in the Europa Conference League slot and mathematically, they can rise to third, the Champions League qualifiers slot but realistically, targeting the Europa League makes more sense. With just one clean sheet in five matches, Strasbourg know where to improve on, as they look to build on a run that has seen them fail to score in just one of their last five matches. At home, Strasbourg have had a dominant run; they are unbeaten in the last eight matches, winning five. Still, they need to improve defensively at home, having no clean sheet in the last three matches. In their last home game, Strasbourg impressively came from 3-1 down to draw 3-3 with PSG.
Clermont’s recent performances have seen them open a five-point gap from the relegation region but they are still in danger. With Saint-Etienne having a game in hand, Clermont have to win their remaining two games or hope that Saint-Etienne drops points along the way. They are coming from a key win, a 2-1 victory over Montpellier, which was their second in their last 11 matches. It hasn’t turned out to be a great season but at least they still have their fate in their hands. One clean sheet only in 10 matches means Clermont have to work on their defending but their biggest concern will be in their away run. They’ve suffered three losses in the last five matches on the road and in these losses, they’ve conceded two or more goals in each. Their only win in five away matches was against Troyes and it happens to be their only clean sheet in five away matches.

Conclusion Strasbourg Alsace - Clermont
Clermont’s first season in the Ligue 1 has been shaky but they have what it takes to stay up. With two wins in remaining two matches, they will confirm their place without having to go through the playoffs. However, they have a poor away run and here they face a side on a good run at home, and vying for a place in Europe. Strasbourg needs a win as badly as Clermont, and this will go down to the teams’ home and away performances. Back Strasbourg to win here.
