20 September 2019 – 19:00
Regular Season – Round 8
Who will be the winner?
Paris and Clermont meet at Stade Sébastien Charléty, in a match for the 8th round of the Ligue 2. The head‑to‑head record at this stadium couldn’t be more balanced, as it shows 2 draws and 1 win for each team in the last 4 head‑to‑heads. Nevertheless, in the last head‑to‑head played at this stadium, on 04‑12‑2018, for the Ligue 2, Paris won by (3‑0). S. Wamangituka (22′ ), R. Perraud (83′ ) and J. López Baila (90′ ) scored the goals of the match for Paris. Both teams register significant differences between home and away results, so the home/away factor is worth atention.
Analysis of Paris
The home team is currently in the 20th position of the league, with 2 points won, after 2 draws and 5 losses. In the penultimate match, they lost in a home match against Chambly, by (0‑3). In the last match, they tied in an away match against Le Havre, by (0‑0). This is a team that is often stronger at home, with the help of its supporters, so they usually make good use of the home advantage, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 3 draws and 8 losses in away matches; against 7 wins, 5 draws and 3 losses at their stadium. Paris has won 5, tied 1 and lost 4 of the last 10 home matches.
In this competition, they haven’t won any of the last 7 matches. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 6 of the last 7 matches, and their offense hasn’t been one of their best features, as they haven’t scored any goals in 5 of the last 7 matches for this competition. In 9 matches, they have conceded the first goal 5 times and have only turned the score around in 1.
At least so far everything Paris has planned is not happening and knows it needs to show an evolution in the field. As he intends to have a quiet time is necessary to play with quality, always acting at the right times and avoiding stumbling. Now your idea is to clash with all opponents, whether playing at home or not, as he wants to score as many times as possible. As much as he knows that his current duel will not be easy, he will still try a positive result to seek the reaction. In this match the best players available will be on the field.
