Venue: Stade de la Licorne (Amiens).
Amiens have been going through a rough patch for the past few weeks, and they will be desperate to make a change to it. They do have the tools to post a win this weekend – home advantage plus an opponent who’s utterly dismal on the road. However, it requires to be seen if Amiens are prepared enough to pull this off.

Amiens vs Dijon Prediction
Amiens had to take on Monaco the last match-day. The latter had the home advantage, and they put it to good use, especially in the second half. While the first 45 minutes ended without a single goal, the hosts fired in three unanswered goals in a row to take the win.
Meanwhile, Dijon tried their best on the road the previous game week. They held off the Nantes offense for 73 minutes before conceding. This said goal was the only one in the game as well.
Both teams are suffering at the moment, but Amiens at least have some reason to hold some hope. The team is on a five-game losing run, but only one of those losses had come at home in an official encounter.
At home, they have won three of their previous four fixtures, whereas, Dijon have a total of four victories this whole season, and a single one on the road. In fact, they are on a five-match losing run on the road, and lost eight of their previous ten such match-ups as well.
Importantly, Amiens have been unbeaten against this opponent this whole of last decade, and have lost just once at this venue in the previous 15 years.
Taking into account these observations, count on the desperate hosts to do just enough for a hard-fought win this Saturday. However, to be on the safe side, we will opt for the DNB.
Moving on, regarding goals, both teams will have to suffer at one point or another. Amiens have kept clean sheets in just two of their previous twenty match-ups, and just twice in their preceding eleven games at home.
Also, Amiens have the second-worst defense in the whole competition, with the worst being the dead-last placed Toulouse.
Taking into consideration these observations, it’s highly likely that the BTTS bet will give good returns this weekend.
