Grégory Bettiol (born 30 March 1986 in Villefranche-sur-Saône) is a French footballer currently playing for Clermont Foot.

Since the age of 14, he was trained in the youth sections and player development program of Olympique Lyonnais.

Olympique Lyonnais[edit]

Bettiol was known by the club's followers for his prowess in the ranks of the Olympique Lyonnais' junior amateur team, playing in the CFA 2. In April 2006, it was announced by Olympique Lyonnais' president Jean-Michel Aulas that he would be made to sign a one-year professional contract with the club alongside fellow young hope and France U-18 international Mourad Benhamida.

He had scored 16 goals in 21 appearances at the attack for his side captained by Benhamida and helped them win the second division Amateur Championship to get promoted in the CFA.

Bettiol is considered part of the young generation of promising players formed by Olympique Lyonnais who were signed by the club (sometimes before being sold to other outfits) like : Jérémy Berthod, Karim Benzema, Hatem Ben Arfa, Mourad Benhamida, Bryan Bergougnoux, and Jérémy Clément.

Troyes AC[edit]

Bettiol was sold to Troyes AC at a fee of €330,000. He made his debut for Troyes in their 1-0 win over Guingamp coming on as a substitute. Bettiol scored his first goal on 24 August 2007 in Troyes' 2-0 win over Bastia.[1]

Clermont Foot[edit]

On January 30, 2013, he signed a two and a half contract with Ligue 2 club Clermont Foot.[2]
