Second-half scores from Jedrasiak and Australian Peter Betham put Dragons to the sword, but Jordan Williams’ 77th-minute try ensured the hosts were not left pointless.
Argentine fly-half Fernandez had a flawless evening off the tee as he slotted all seven conversion attempts.
Clermont’s win matched Ospreys’ record of a maximum 30 match points in the pool stage from 2016/17.
