Amiens vs Nantes
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 24th August 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Licorne (Amiens).
Amiens opened their account with a loss to Nice 2-1 but that was a tough game to start their campaign and it was away. The team bounced back in style though in the next game and went on to beat Lille 1-0 who finished as runners up last season.
Like a lot of clubs in mid to lower table this season will be all out gaining points at home, and if they can beat Lille they will be confident of getting points against Nantes.
The defence has really been worked on at Amiens and it worked wonders against Lille who only got 1 shot on goal the whole game, that is something for Nantes to think about.
As for Nantes they started the season losing 2-1 to Lille and then followed that up with a 0-0 draw against Marseille at home. The worry for Nantes will be how they perform on the road, and this could be a very tough fixture for them with Amiens being very tight at the back.
Amiens vs Nantes: Head to Head
Amiens have not won at home v Nantes in 3 meetings going back to 2008.
The last time the teams met here Nantes won 2-1.
There is a 65% chance to see over 2.5 goals.
Amiens vs Nantes: Prediction
We are going to back two markets here, the first is to see the draw at half time. We expect a very tight game, we already know that Amiens defence has greatly improved, and Nantes have just kept a clean sheet against Marseille. Our other choice will be to see under 2.5 goals.
Even if history does not point to this, this is a game that will not be played at a fast pace, Amiens lack too much quality and Nantes will play out slow from the back, in truth they would be happy to come away from here with a point. Don’t expect a thrilling game and keep your stakes at medium.
