Clermont – Valenciennes
Another game where both teams have nothing to play for. Both are saved, both having quite a poor season.
For third consecutive season, Corinne Diacre led her team and survived in Ligue 2, but this season was the worst from those 3. True is they lost some interesting players prior the season start and had some injuries problems especially upfront, so overall we can consider Clermont evolution acceptable. They assured in big percentage theyir salvation few rounds ago and relaxed after, Clermont tanking only 3 points in last 6 games, enough to avoid relegation.
Valenciennes was a team with an interesting start of the season, with only 2 defeats in first 12 rounds, both against teams which fight for promotion, but after alternated good period with very bad one. A bad start of 2017 with only couple of win in first 12 games and the team sliding in the table near to relegation spot, being for few rounds involved in relegation battle. But they woke up at the right moment and are no far away of both poles of the table. Maybe they was the team with the biggest injuries during all the season, situation being bad also for this game.
Expect anie and open game with at least 2 goals in first half. gl
