Bordeaux – Clermont Match Preview

  • Six-time Ligue 1 (L1) champions Bordeaux haven’t won a league title since 2008/09 and finished each of the last three campaigns outside the top ten. Financial issues meant that relegation looked a serious threat last season, although three L1 wins across their final four matches – as many victories as in their 15 league games prior to that – eased those fears.
  • With their curtain raiser coming at home, ‘Les Girondins’ fans will be hoping for a repeat of last season where they managed to start their L1 campaign with five consecutive home clean sheets (W2, D3). This set them up nicely to secure nine home shutouts across the season – only champions Lille managed more.
  • Clermont Foot will become the 79th different side to appear in L1 and the ninth to debut in the 21st century. As division newbies, they’re among the top-three favourites to face the drop, though they might surprise a few if they can carry their impressive attacking form from last season into this one – Clermont scored in each of their last eight Ligue 2 (L2) games, their best such run since Jan-Apr 2018 (14).
  • ‘Les Lanciers’ lost the only previous H2H via a one-goal margin (1-0), and this is worth noting given that six of their seven away L2 losses last season also came via a single-goal margin.
  • Players to watch: Rémi Oudin scored each of his four L1 goals last season at home, including Bordeaux’s first L1 home goal of 2020/21. Meanwhile, L2’s top-scorer last season, Clermont’s Mohamed Bayo, netted four goals and assisted two in his final five L2 games.
  • Hot stat: Bordeaux have won five of their last seven opening L1 games vs newly promoted teams (W5, L2), although their last such match against a newly promoted opponent ended in defeat.
