Amiens vs Caen
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 9th February 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Licorne (Amiens).
Amiens are looking for their first win of 2019 and come into this game in very poor form. The club have lost their last 4 matches in a row and they are now in 19th place.
Despite this if they were to win at the weekend, they could have a chance to move out of the relegation zone. Last week they lost against Rennes by 1-0 and at home the club have not won a game for over 3 months. From the last 15 points at home they have won just 1.
Caen are 17th and despite being two places above Amiens they have the same points and only goal difference separates the clubs. They too come into this game in poor form having lost their last 3 games in a row, although they have had some really tough fixtures including having to play Lille and Marseille.
Current form is not good for Caen who have gained just 4 points from their last available 15 and on the road, they have won just 1 game all season. However, they have drawn 4 of their last five games, but they have only been able to score 9 goals away from home all season.
Amiens vs Caen: Head to Head
- Last season Amiens won this fixture 3-0.
- Earlier this season Caen won at home 1-0.
- The last 4 meetings have only seen one team score a goal.
- Caen have not won at Amiens in over 15 years.
Amiens vs Caen: Prediction
This is a fantastic opportunity for Amiens to win their first game of the year. They are at home where they are facing a team of similar quality and they have the motivation to try and move out of the relegation zone plus they would also go past Caen.
Both teams lack confidence which could see this match finish in a draw. However, we think Amiens can just edge this match and get a narrow victory. Our one worry is that the home side have scored just 1 goal in their past five games, but they have had some quality opponents.
