Nantes vs Clermont Head-to-Head

Nantes continued their solid start to their 2021-22 campaign last weekend with a draw against Bordeaux.

They have now picked up 14 points from their opening 10 matches and could even move as high as the top four with a win here, depending on other results.

Nantes’ attack has been effective thus far with 14 goals scored, and they’ve now lost just one of their last five games.

Clermont, meanwhile, looked to be sliding into trouble after a great start to their maiden Ligue 1 season. Prior to last weekend, they were on a seven-game winless streak.

However, Pascal Gastien’s side picked up their biggest victory to date last Saturday, defeating reigning champions Lille thanks to a goal from Vital N’Simba.

The win moved Clermont up to 14th, giving them renewed hope of surviving their first campaign into the top flight.

The last time these sides faced off was way back in 2013. Clermont ran out 0-1 winners in that game, but have only beaten Nantes twice in their last six meetings.
