Clermont Foot almost holds its maintenance in Ligue 1

On Wednesday evening, the players of Clermont Foot carefully followed the trip from Saint-Étienne to Nice. The Greens lost (2-4) and Pascal Gastien’s men (our picture) must have felt some relief. Assured of not descending directly into Ligue 2 since last Sunday and their home victory against Montpellier (2-1), the Auvergnats have not yet finished with their maintenance operation which they would like to conclude this evening at La Meinau against in Strasbourg.

“At least we aim for a point for the last two matches”

Pascal Gastien, Clermont coach

” Saint Etienne (who is five points behind) is able to win his last two matches, we must at least aim for a point, recalled the CF63 coach on Friday. The sooner it’s over, the better. It would be better for us if it didn’t happen on the last day (OL reception). »

Mohamed Bayo is on the same wavelength as his coach. “Relying on others is not the best solution, taking points is better, added the team’s top scorer (13 goals in 30 matches). It will be hard, but they have more pressure than us because they have to win if they want to play for Europe. Nice matches (1-0, February 6) and from Marseilles (2-0, February 20) show that we can titillate the big ones. It will be a big challenge, it is up to us to try to meet it. »
