10-12-2022 Daily Predictions European Champions Cup Clermont vs Stormers

Clermont vs Stormers

Clermont kick of their European campaign against the United Rugby Champions the Stormers which is the South African team’s debut in this competition. The home team are still chasing their first ever European title and have endured heartbreaking losses in this competition in the past. They will be glad that their opening match is in front of their partisan fans. The Stormers are visiting one of the most daunting stadiums in Europe and will want to prevent the French side from making a fast start as they are very difficult team to catch once they in the lead.

TIP: The Stormers are fortunate that Clermont are not the once formidable team of a few years ago when they went almost three years without losing a home game. The French side is still strong and if the Stormers are to be successful they will need to silence the home crowd early on. The best way to do this will be to score first and this will add more pressure on the home side. The bookies have Clermont as favourites but I’m tipping the Stormers on the upset win. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Worldsportsbetting 2.80, Playabets 2.75 and Sunbet 2.80

PREDICTION

The Stormers shocked all and sundry when they won the URC last season with their willingness to attack from anywhere being a highlight of their successful campaign. They will be up against a Clermont side that plays in a very similar way. The home team have two world class wingers in Damian Penaud and Alivereti Raka and if they are given any space they will make the visitors pay. The Stormers will be relying on their excellent forward pack to gain the advantage and if they are able to do this then they could cause an upset. The form of newly capped Springbok Mannie Libbok could swing the match towards the Stormers. We are backing the visitors to win by 4 points.
