Lyon is certainly not able to bring joy to the fans after what they have performed. Looking at the last 5 matches that Lyon has participated in recent times, this team cannot win. The best result that Lyon got was only 2 draws. The last time the Rhone Lions could win was beating Wolfsburg 4-1 in a friendly in mid-July. Therefore in Ligue 1, Lyon is still struggling to find their first victory.

On the opening day, Lyon caused great disappointment. Welcoming Brest at Parc Olympique Lyonnais, Peter Bosz and his students only drew 1-1. Even entering the second round, Lyon had to admit defeat when they came to be Angers’ guest. It was a big loss with a score of 0-3.

Clermont is having much better results than Lyon in Ligue 1. After 2 rounds, Clermont did not drop a single point. They made good use of the opportunity to win against Bordeaux and Troyes. Both of these matches ended with a 2-0 victory for Clermont. Therefore, at the moment, Les Lanciers is temporarily ranked second in the table with 6 maximum points. They are only behind Angers because they lost in sub-stats.

Those victories are also helping Clermont prolong their winning streak. Until now, the army of coach Pascal Gastien has won 6 consecutive victories. Expanding on the previous matches,  Clermont also has a 9-match unbeaten streak. The last time the Stade Gabriel-Montpied team lost was 3 months ago. Returning to a 2-0 victory over Troyes in the second round, Clermont won the match because of the half-goal handicap.
