Amiens vs Nice
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 23 February 2019
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK
Venue: Stade Credit Agricole de la Licorne (Amiens).
In the 26th round of French Ligue 1, Amiens are going to take on Nice in the Saturday’s evening clash.
Home side is struggling to keep their heads above the water as they are just a point ahead of the relegation zone. They suffered four defeats in the last five rounds and managed to book only one victory.
Christophe Pelissier’s side needs to tighten up their defence, but their biggest trouble is terrible finishing as they managed to produce only 19 goals so far in the season.
Amiens cannot be proud of their home displays as they have already suffered seven defeats when playing in front of their fans.
Nice are fighting for the place in the European competitions for the next season and they are just three points behind the fourth-placed Marseille.
However, the visitors cannot stabilize their form throughout the entire season and they picked up seven points from the last five rounds. They are playing very disciplined football, the visitors allowed only 26 goals so far, but their finishing is not much better than their rivals’.
Dante and the lads need to tie a streak of good results in order to remain competitive for the place in Europa League next season.
Amiens vs Nice: Head-to-head
Interestingly, their last five encounters finished with a home victory and the visiting team has been unable to score six times in a row.
Nice managed to celebrate only once at Stade Credit Agricole de la Licorne, and that one took place 20 years ago.
Their clashes are pretty tight and in just one occasion the crowd was able to see goals in both nets.
Amiens vs Nice: Prediction
Although the hosts are in a very poor form, the tradition speaks a lot in the build-up of this clash. Nice are not too confident and since Amiens are fighting for the survival, they might be able to pick up all three points from this one.
Both sides have a lot of troubles in converting their chances into goals and we shouldn’t be expecting an efficient clash. We are confident that the crowd won’t be able to see more than two goals in total in this encounter.
