Amiens vs Angers
France – Ligue 1
Date: Tuesday, 8th January 2019
Kick-off at 18.00 UK/ 19.00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Licorne (Amiens).
The newly-promoted Amiens have a not-so-tough task at hand this weekend in the form of a visit by Angers. As far as the Unicorns are concerned, they need points at home to ensure survival in the league. Their away record is not that much dependable, and against another team from the bottom tier of the table, home fans will expect their team to perform well.
Angers sold their top-scorer for last season Famara Diedhiou and failed to find a suitable replacement. New signing Enzo Crivelli is still in the sidelines due to his injury and going forward in their season, this will be the biggest handicap that the Les Sciotes will have to face.
Amiens vs Angers Head-to-head (h2h)
- Six of the last seven h2h wins belong to the sides that hosted the game.
- The away sides failed to score a goal in six of the last eight h2h matches.
Amiens vs Angers Prediction
Matches between these teams have always been low goalscoring affairs. Extending back almost 12 years, we can see that, every single h2h game since then had under 2.5 goals. And the major share of whatever goals were scored came from the home teams. The away sides failed to register goals in six of their last eight attempts.
Amiens will take advantage of the backing of the home crowd and convert it into points. Angers had such a terrible away record this year, that all they could manage was just four wins in 21 trips on the road. They have a streak of eight winless matches going also.
Angers will find it hard to break down the home defense, and we can expect a clean sheet from the Les Licornes. Also, keeping with the trend of h2h matches in the last decade, the match will have under 2.5 goals.
