Amiens vs Metz: 29 February 2020, Saturday.
French Ligue 1, Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Licorne.
Amiens chances of Ligue 1 survival are slowly slipping away as there are 12 games left and they are 5 points from safety. Whilst the club have only lost one game in their past five, 4 of those matches have ended in draws.
Last weekend after drawing 4-4 against PSG the club could only draw away to Strasbourg 0-0 and they really need to taste victory again.
At home Amiens have no wins so far this year and have only won 3 games all season here. They have had two very hard home games recently in having to play Monaco and PSG, where they of course drew against PSG but lost against Monaco.
Metz are in 16th place but are just 1 point from the bottom three. They did start the year with blistering form but that has ended, and they have gone their last 4 games without a win.
Last weekend they lost 2-0 against Lyon and before that they drew 0-0 against Nantes. They have lost 5 on the road but their most consistent result away from home is draws and they have drawn almost 50% of their games.
Amiens vs Metz: Head to Head

Metz have not beaten Amiens since 2012 and away from home that goes back to 2007.
Amiens vs Metz: Prediction
This is the perfect game for Amiens to get back on track and all of the fans will remember that last time their team played at home they scored 4 goals against PSG, so why not get a long overdue win in the league against opposition like Metz?
Of course, football doesn’t always work this way but there is a big motivation for Amiens to get out of the hole they are in.
We are backing the home side and also, we will back Gael Kakuta to score anytime as he is in form.
However, our first choice would be Serhou Guirassy but there is a suggestion that he might be struggling with injury, if he plays back him instead.
