The two most common caises of Clios not starting are ignition coil or TDC sensor problems. Probably best to rule out these possibilities first.
If you think the problem is worse when the engine is warm it could be a duff temperature sensor fooling the ECU into thinking the engine is always cold and causing over-fueling.
