Amiens vs Montpellier
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 11th January 2020
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Licorne.
Amiens come into this game in 18th and the relegation zone but have 17 points and a win could take them as high as 16th depending on other results. But wins and Amiens don’t seem to go in the same sentence and the club have none in five games, indeed they have only earned 1 point in that time.
Amiens have lost 50% of all games and their last match ended in a 4-1 slaughter against PSG. The club have fared much better at home and have 3 wins and 3 defeats with two draws. They drew 1-1 v Dijon in their last game but haven’t won at home since the beginning of November when they overcame Brest.
Montpellier are in 9th place and are 10 points ahead of their hosts. The club stopped a 3 game run with no wins when they beat Brest 4-0. The club could climb into the top six with a win and they should start the game as favourites. Away from home has been a disaster for the club though who have still won no games. They have drawn 5 and lost 4, and have earned 3 points on the road from their last available 15.

Amiens vs Montpellier: Prediction
Amiens are poor and Montpellier are far the better side and are yet looking for their first away win, this match could present that opportunity. But we feel there will be a lot of caution in the first half with no side really going for it and we would back half time to be a draw.
We will also pick out both teams to score as it has a 100% success rate when these two have met in Ligue 1. With all of that said we should also add the 2nd half to have the most goals because Montpellier are going to have to go for this and end this poor away record that they have.
