THE PREDICTION

Clermont Auvergne are 12 points behind Toulouse in first place of the Top 14 with a game in-hand and they are likely a little disappointed with their record so far, with a 16-16 draw away to Bordeaux another opportunity missed. One win from their last three Top 14 games is a difficult patch of form for the French giants and this home match against Castres is not the pushover fixture it once was. Visiting Castres are in excellent form so far in 2021 with three wins on the spin against Lyon, Agen and Montpellier. With two of those wins coming away from home, this could be a potential banana skin for Racing and a handicap could be a difficult total to call with Castres flying high. Instead, picking the home side to edge a result that goes over 40 points seems a more reasonable option here.
