After Clermont-Ferrand FC filed for bankruptcy in 1990, the Auvergne-based club returned to the Division d'Honneur with the aim of regaining professional status as quickly as possible. However, it was not until 12 years later that the Clermont-Ferrand FC achieved this objective, by reaching Ligue 2 BKT.
In the meantime, they had a remarkable run in the 1997 French Cup, eliminating the Paris SG of Bernard Lama, Paul Le Guen and Rai in the quarter-finals. Their journey would end in the next round against the Aiglons, future winners of the edition.
In 2021, led by their striker Mohamed Bayo, the Auvergnats finished second in the French Ligue 2 BKT championship, which was synonymous with promotion to the first division.
In the last 5 games between the two teams, the Aiglons have lost 3 times and won 2.
In the last meeting between the two teams, on Matchday 10 of Ligue 1 Uber Eats 2023-2024 at the Gabriel-Montpied stadium, H. Boudaoui (74') gave Nice a win by the narrowest of margins : 1-0.
The Gabriel-Montpied stadium is the home of Clermont and has a capacity of 11,980 spectators. The distance between the Allianz Riviera stadium in Nice and the Gabriel-Montpied stadium in Clermont is 398 kilometres.
