Amiens vs Bordeaux
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 31st March 2019
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Licorne.
Amiens are in 17th which is the bad news, but the good news is that they have a 7 point gap to 18th and the bottom three. Whilst that looks like a decent gap for survival, it could easily be eaten up.
The home side could go 10 points in front of 18th placed Guingamp, given that Guingamp will not play in the league this weekend due to their Coupe de la Ligue final appearance against Strasbourg. So from a psychological viewpoint getting the win this weekend and going 10 points in front could be a massive advantage.
Form is decent given that Amiens come into this game unbeaten in their last 4 matches. Before the break they drew against Angers and at home they have won their last 3 games in a row including great victories against the likes of Nice and Nimes.
Bordeaux are in 13th and 5 points above Amiens and this has been, on reflection a really poor season for the club. They will be safe but also like a lot of clubs in midtable they can’t challenge for Europe either.
Bordeaux have drawn their last 2 games and have no wins in their last five. Winning just 2 away games all season they have one of the poorest records in the league on the road and have scored just 8 goals away from home all season. Only Guingamp have scored less with 7.

Amiens vs Bordeaux: Prediction
Amiens are in the better form and are at home and have a decent record over a very average Bordeaux side. We believe they can get the win and will back them for it.
We will also back Moussa Konate to score anytime for the home side, as he has a few goals to his name and with the suspension of Sehrou Guirassy Amiens other forward Konate is going to have more opportunities and chances.
It would be a real surprise to see Bordeaux get anything from this game and we are confident that Amiens can get all three points here.
