Harlequins host Clermont at Twickenham Stoop as the 2019/20 European Champions Cup group stage comes to a conclusion. Clermont are in need of victory to secure top spot in their pool and I’m backing them in the handicap market against a Harlequins side that could rest players.

Harlequins Form 


Harlequins won their first game in three matches against Bath 25-19 at the Ricoh Arena. The weekend prior they lost 48-10 to Sale.

Harlequins have been inconsistent this season and have lost by more than 12 points in two of their last three home matches. They are already out of the Champions Cup and could use this as an opportunity to rest key players.

Harlequins can be backed at 5.00 to win while a draw is priced at 26.00.

Harlequins News


Harlequins focus will fall upon the English Rugby Premiership now that they are mathematically out of the European Champions Cup. Considering this is their last match in the Champions Cup, they could rest key players.

Clermont Form


Clermont won their last match against Ulster at the Stade Marcel Michelin 29-13 as they grabbed top spot in the pool. Going into the final week Clermont need a victory to secure that spot ahead of Ulster.

Clermont’s season has been very solid thus far and they have shown signs of returning to their former best in the European Champions Cup. Clermont has covered the -12 handicap in five of their last eight matches in all competitions and I see no reason why they can’t do it again.

Clermont are priced at 1.16 to win but there is value in them at 1.90 to cover the -12 handicap.

Clermont News


Clermont will go in at full-strength knowing the need to win to secure top spot in the pool. Scotland’s veteran scrum-half Greig Laidlaw could come in for Morgan Parra at scrum-half considering his impact off the bench last week.

Harlequins vs Clermont Head to Head


Clermont have beaten Harlequins their in previous four matches. The last encounter ended 53-21 to Clermont earlier this season in the European Champions Cup at the Stade Marcel Michelin.

Harlequins vs Clermont Betting Odds


Harlequins are underdogs at 5.00 with Clermont priced at 1.16. In the handicap market the line is drawn at 12 points with both sides paying 1.90 to cover it. A draw will pay 26.00.

Clermont can be backed at 1.40 in the HT/FT market while the hosts are priced at 6.00.

Harlequins vs Clermont Match Up


Clermont have a powerful pack and an exciting back-line full of international players from around the world. French winger Alivereti Raka is a devastating runner and lit up the World Cup last year. 

Harlequins will need to match Clermont at set pieces and among the forwards are players like Raka could create havoc.
