17-12-2022 Daily Predictions European Champions Cup Leicester Tigers vs Clermont

Leicester vs Clermont

English champions Leicester welcome Clermont to Welford Road for this heavyweight clash in the European Champions Cup. Both teams enjoyed excellent wins in their first round matches but will be looking for better starts as they both had to overcome half time deficits to win. Clermont had a full house of partisan fans backing them and it will be interesting to see how they fare away from home. Leicester have not quite hit the heights of last season following the departure of some key players but they will want to stamp their authority on the match early on.

TIP: The home team will be banking on their fans to lift them against a team that is notorious for not being the best of travelers. Leicester will need their forwards to be at their very best as Clermont dismantled a very strong Stormers team in the last match. The French giants will be keen to improve their dismal away record in this competition. The bookies have Leicester as favourites and I am also tipping them for the win. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Worldsportsbetting 1.28 Playabets 1.28 and Sunbet 1.26


Leicester vs Clermont

  • Leicester have won the last two matches between the sides.
  • They have won all three of their home matches against Clermont.

Latest results for both teams

Leicester beat Ospreys 23-17 in their last match while Clermont beat the Stormers 24-14 in their last match.


The home team won their first Premiership title in 10 years last season and they achieved this by dominating all teams with their powerful pack. They will again look to use this tactic against Clermont although they will miss their skipper from last season Ellis Genge. Clermont looked very dangerous in the last match when they ran the ball and gave more ball to their brilliant wingers Alivereti Raka and Damian Penaud. They are two of the best wingers in Europe and Leicester will need to watch them closely in order to keep them quite. The Tigers main attacking weapon is their rolling maul and if they are able to gain ground with it then they will win this match. We are backing the home team to win by 14 points.
