Amiens vs PSG
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 12 January 2019
Kick-Off at 16:00 UK / 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade Credit Agricole de la Licorne (Amiens).
PSG returned to winning ways after consecutive draws to Bordeaux and Strasbourg by beating Nantes 1-0 at Parc Des Princes in the previous round of Ligue 1. The reigning champions are still untouchable at the very top of the standings. They are 13 points clear off the second-placed Lille with two games in hand on them thanks to a superb record of 15 wins and 2 draws in 17 league affairs so far.
Nevertheless, Les Parisiens won’t come into this weekend’s clash with Amiens in the highest of spirits. They fell 1-2 at home to Guingamp on Wednesday evening in spite of having an advantage through Neymar after the hour-mark. They thus won’t defend the title in Coupe de la Ligue after being blamed for three penalties in a single game. Thomas Tuchel’s men previously eased past lower-division Pontivy GSI to advance to the last 32 round of Coupe de France.
Amiens vs PSG: Head-to-head
These two likes met each other five times so far and PSG came on top on four occasions as Amiens managed to fight for one draw along the way.
Les Parisiens clinched a demolishing 5-0 victory when teams battled it out in mid-October at Parc Des Princes.
Les Licornes failed to find the back of the net in four of five clashes with PSG.
Amiens vs PSG: Prediction
The hosts were in action on Tuesday when they played a goalless draw to Angers SCO in Ligue 1. They improved their defensive performances significantly of late and will come into this having conceded just one goal in past three outings in all competitions. However, they did little to perform at the other end and knowing about their poor attacking record in H2H games with Paris SG, the visitors to keep a clean sheet looks to be just the way to go here.
The gulf in quality between the two teams is massive and we expect Tuchel’s troops to storm their way to the win here.
