Amiens vs Monaco
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 8th February 2020
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Licorne.
Amiens are in 19th but they are just 4 points from safety and they still have a chance to survive in the league.
Recent form has been encouraging in one sense because even though they have won no games they have drawn 3 of their last four and are picking up points. This has enabled the club to pull 7 points clear of bottom placed Toulouse.
The club impressed in their last game as they were able to draw 0-0 with Lyon. A win could take them past Nimes into 18th place.
Amiens have the 2nd to worst home record in the league though where they have won just 3 games this season and have no wins at home so far this year. They have picked up 3 points from their last 15 at home.
Monaco are in 10th place and ended 4 games without a win in midweek by beating Angers at home 1-0. It has felt like doom and gloom since new coach Robert Moreno took over, but the truth is if the club were to win here, they could be in the top six clubs depending on other results.
Monaco have only won 2 games away from home, but they have only lost one game on the road in their past four. The catch is that the loss was their last game which came against Nimes by 3-1.
Amiens vs Monaco: Head to Head
- Last season this game ended 2-0 to Monaco.

Amiens vs Monaco: Prediction
Monaco are a great price to win this game and they have the quality to do so. Amiens have a poor record against Monaco, but they clearly do raise their game against the bigger teams, look at their draw against Lyon recently.
Despite this we will take Monaco to win at evens and also Wissam Ben Yedder hasn’t scored for a few games but he is still the league’s top goalscorer so we will back him to get a goal in this match.
Amiens vs Monaco: Bet Tips:
Monaco to beat Amiens at 2.00 (1/1)
Anytime goalscorer: Wissam Ben Yedder (Monaco) at 2.25 (5/4).
