Amiens vs Lyon
France Ligue 1
Date: Friday, 13th September 2019
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Stade de la Licorne.
Lyon will be the favourites to beat Amiens when the two teams clash in Ligue 1 on Friday evening.
However, Lyon will need to get their form back on track. After starting the season in brilliant fashion scoring 9 goals on their way to winning their first two games of the season, they have faltered and come into this game with no wins in their last two matches. They lost 1-0 against Montpellier and then at home in their last game they could only draw 1-1 against Bordeaux.
Amiens are in 18th and have lost 3 of their first 4 games in the league. Their only win came against Lille when they were at home and that ended 1-0. Their last match ended in a 2-0 loss at Toulouse, otherwise all of their other matches even when defeats have been close results, and they will feel they deserve not to be so low down in the league already.
But with 6 goals conceded already, only three other teams have a worse record and they will have to somehow control the pace of the game to get anything in this one.
Amiens vs Lyon: Head to Head
- Lyon have won all of the last 6 meetings against Amiens.
- Last season this fixture ended 1-0 to Lyon.
- In the last 5 meetings Amiens have only scored 2 goals.
Amiens vs Lyon: Prediction
We are backing Lyon to win this game, whilst it is true that some of their wins against Amiens have been close matches, they have a lot of quality and are simply much better than their opponents.
Lyon will have plenty of the ball and the international break came at the right time for Sylvinho’s team who just needed to readjust and focus more, this should be the perfect match for them to do this and we feel Lyon can ease to a good result here and pick up all three points.
