Racing Strasbourg - Clermont Foot

The host are 5th on the table, just two points under the promotion zone. In the last round they had an unlucky draw against Vannes Olimpique 2:2. Beside that they don't have a home win in 2009, two draws (Dijon 0:0, Brestois 2:2) and a defeat against Sedan Ardennes 1:3. The club's target is come back to elite. I think they possess quality, but have to start wining in a row. Today's opponent is ideal. No injury problems.

Clermont is holding 16th place, six points more from relegation zone. In the last two rounds they took four points from directly opponents. Troyes 1:0 (away) and Ajaccio 1:1 (home). Will be relaxed tonight,will defend on own half and wait for some counter attack opportunity. Bad news for them are injury list. Five players are missing:Mienniel , Chaussidière , Hamdani , Camerling , Darchy.

It is not big offer for betting today, but this is my main pick. First suggestion is home win. One early goal can take this game into over and I'll gamble, small bet on home handicap win.
