Amiens vs Lille
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 15th September 2018
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Licorne (Amiens).
Amiens will be looking to get all three points when they take on high flying Lille on Saturday evening in Ligue 1.
Amiens got off to a terrible start when they lost their opening two games and the writing looked on the wall that we had a club who might get sucked into the bottom three and stay there all season.
But to their credit Amiens showed some fight and surprised many people when they beat Reims 4-1, despite Reims being the inform side. They followed this up with a decent away draw against St Etienne which finished 0-0.
Lille have had an impressive start with wins over Rennes and Guingamp and from 4 games they have scored 6 goals.
But in their last match they were brought down a little when they lost 1-0 away to Angers. Still Lille are in 4th place and we will see how they can bounce back after suffering their first defeat of the season.
Amiens vs Lille: Head to Head
The teams have only played two recent games which were both won by Amiens.
Last season this fixture ended in a 3-0 win for Amiens.
Amiens vs Lille: Prediction
Lille are the favourites to win this game but Amiens were very strong in their last home game and could be a force at home. They have picked up well since the beginning of .the season and have a great forward in Moussa Konate who can cause any defence problems.
The value here is for Amiens to get the win and this will be our main bet alongside Konate scoring. History also sides with Amiens and Lille’s loss against Angers might still be a problem for the away side.
