Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Clermont and Troyes square off against each other at Stade Gabriel Montpied on day 8 of the new Ligue 1 campaign. Clermont did well to hold Strasbourg to a goalless draw at the weekend, with the team eyeing their third consecutive clean sheet in the national championship. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team, both defensive duo Baila Diallo – Mehdi Zeffane remains in the recovery room.
Bruno Irles’ men, on the other hand, aim to make amends for a 1-0 loss to Lens. Troyes have been totally unpredictable in the first half of the season, but they are surely capable of sharing the spoils with Clermont, who have been having their ups and downs of late. As for the visiting side, both Andreas Bruus and Karim Azamoum are sidelined with injuries, while teenage forward Wilson Odobert is pushing for a start.
