Amiens vs Monaco
French Ligue 1
Date: Tuesday, 4 December 2018
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: Stade Credit Agricole de la Licorne (Amiens).
Monaco bounced back from consecutive 0-4 defeats to Club Brugge and PSG by beating Caen 0-1 after the international break. It was only team’s second victory of the campaign in Ligue 1, but it meant a lot on psychological moment for Thierry Henry and his men. Les Monegasques went on to show a decent display in a 2-0 defeat to Atletico Madrid in mid-week’s Champions League tie at Wanda Metropolitano.
The visitors well deserved to bag at least one goal on the occasion, but Radamel Falcao fired wide from thee penalty spot late in the game. Henry still has a mountain to climb to bring Monaco into safe waters. Tuesday’s Ligue 1 tie with Amiens should give Les Monegasques a great chance to make it a positive thread given their rivals have been struggling for results in recent weeks in Ligue 1.
Amiens vs Monaco: Head-to-head
The two teams will take on each other only for the fifth time on Tuesday evening.
Three of past four H2H games ended without a winner as Monaco came on top in the remaining clash.
Both teams scored in three of four head to head matches.
Amiens vs Monaco: Prediction
Les Licornes dropped down to 16th place after losing four of past five league matches. The most recent of failures came after the international break when they fell 1-3 at home to Olympique Marseille. The team scored just three goals in past five Ligue 1 affairs and they might struggle to create past highly-motivated Monaco’s defensive line here.
The visitors finally managed to keep things quiet at the back in a 0-1 victory at Caen. They pull off a decent display against the likes of Atletico Madrid six days ago as well. We see this clash as a huge opportunity for Henry’s side to claim a highly-important three-pointer and we’ll shoot for the away win at the odds of 2.40 as the main betting option.
