Clermont Foot to beat Angers
Angers is better team in the table, but for this game they have 4 players suspended: Malik Couturier (df 8/1), Ibrahima Diallo (df 17/0), Rayan Frikeche (mf 14/2), Olivier Auriac (mf 18/0). Also injured is Jeremy Henin (df 12/0) and two players are doubtful without cap Stevie Riga and Jonas Henrique Pessalli and Richard Socrier (att 4/0. All of them regulars.
On the other side is Clermont which was out of form and winter break come in right time for them. Players who had some problems with injuries like Fabien Farnolle (first gk), Gregory Lacombe (mf 14/1), Jaques Salze (df 5/0) are all fit to join the squad, so there is no missing problems (just Touncara out but he didnt play this season). Also good news for the coach is that Imorou (df 12/0) is available after a ban and Clermont have been boosted by the news that Dembele (att 19/7, topscorer) will not go to the Cup of African Nations with Mali.
As i said good thing for them that winter break come because they had not so good form but still Clermont are unbeaten in the league on the road since August, which is rare in this league, who normally is short of good away teams.
I found value in away win for Clermont.
