Amiens vs Lyon
France Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 27 January 2018
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Licorne (Amiens).
The Stade de la Licorne is sure to be at full capacity when Lyon will visit here and this should be a good game full of atmosphere.
Amiens are just 1 point from the relegation zone and really need to start to pick up points if they want to pull clear. Their problem has been recent from where they have lost their last 2 games in a row although these were against the top two teams in the league in PSG and Lille.
However, they haven’t won a game since the beginning of December so they need to kick on.
They will be happy in some ways that they didn’t lose to Lille or PSG with a heavy score as defence tactics have been worked on for the past month in order to keep the side up. They have conceded 6 goals in 4 games which for Amiens is an improvement. They have lost 60% of their games when being at home.
Lyon are trying to roar back, although even if they do they will have to make do with 2nd place at the best as PSG run away with the league once again.
OL have gone on a good unbeaten run for 2 months now and last weekend they Saint Etienne which was a massive result for them and came away from home, and they were a goal down. That result could be the major boost that the club need.
They are now in 3rd place and just three points behind Lille. Lyon have won 16 points from the 30 on offer away from home and have lost just 2 games on the road.
Amiens vs Lyon: Head to Head
Lyon beat Amiens 2-0 here just a few days ago in the Coupe de France.
In recent times the clubs have played each other on five occasions and Lyon have won them all.
Lyon have scored 12 goals against Amiens in their last 5 meetings.
Amiens vs Lyon: Prediction
Lyon should have little problems to get the win. It is true that they have drawn too many games lately, but they always get good results when they play Amiens and of course only played them here a few days ago and won that match too.
But Lyon are around 1/2 (1.50) for the win which doesn’t offer much value, so instead we will take them to be winning at half time. The club are on a mission to finish 2nd.
Chances are, Amiens may bounce back. But it is unlikely it will be in this game and their struggle will most probably continue.
Amiens vs Lyon: Bet Tips
