Paris FC x Clermont
Paris FC – Clermont
Despite losing unfair 0-1 at Brest, Paris FC shown they are in an evident progress and I expect soon the things to change in better for rock bottom team. They dominated the game at the beginning but were punished by the Brest realism. They put a lot of energy back into this game but fate was not with them. The frustration and disappointment is legitimate after this game. At home Paris FC will try to take points to go out from last spot but their mission from Monday evening will be a difficult one hosting in form Clermont. Chergui is suspended here.
A Clermont who put a lot of problems to the leader Nancy, but eventually lost 1-3, proving once again they are not at the same level with Dijon (1-4 defeat) and Nancy. But they are still hopping for 3rd spot. For more than an hour they played at the same level with Nancy, opening the score after a counter. But their lead didn’t last too much, Nancy leveling after a corner kick. Once again their top scorer Diedhiou scored but this time he did it in a wrong goal. But wasn’t his fault, Caillard (Clermont GK) missed the ball after another corner kick. They couldn’t bounce back in the game and conceded the third goal 5 mins till the end. Agounon saw red card in injury time and will be suspended here (perhaps more than a match after a brutal fault).
From what I saw, Paris FC played much better/solid lately. With these new signings the face of the team changed and are expecting good results to appear soon. Clermont I don’t think will have the force to stay in promotion battle but remains also a solid team. Perhaps a draw is the most likely outcome. gl
