Paris vs Clermont

A quick overview of Clermont Football Club 63

Founded in 1984, Clermont Football Club 63 will play in Ligue 1 Uber Eats for the first time in its history for the 2021-22 season. After several failures to reach the podium in the previous seasons, the 2020-21 season ended with a rise in Ligue 1 Uber Eats with their second place.

The club coached by Pascal Gastien has shown an impressive defensive solidity with 20 games without conceding goals. But Clermont FC 63’ players are also very effective on the other side of the pitch. Indeed, they have scored 60 goals in the 2020-21 season. This strength on both sides of the field has allowed the club to have the best goal difference in Ligue 2 BKT.

The club is also known for electing the first female coach of a men's professional team in France. In 2014, Corinne Diacre took over as head coach after Helena Costa stepped down before the start of the season. Her time spent at Clermont was a successful period for the club and the team came close to going up in 2015, finishing fifth in the Ligue 2 BKT. Corinne Diacre left the club in 2017 to take charge of the French women's football team.

The best result for the club in League Cup is a quarter-final in 2005 lost against the future winner of the competition, Strasbourg.

Born on September 9th, 1998, the U21 French international will have a prominent role in the matches against Clermont.

Mohammed Bayo

Striker 04/06/1998
Born on June 04th 1998 in Clermont-Ferrand, Mohammed Bayo will be one of the players to follow at Clermont. The Guinean international is coming off a season in which he was the top scorer in the Ligue 2 BKT with 21 goals. This promising young striker was keen to be part of the first Clermont team to reach the first division in order to honour his hometown.
