Amiens vs Reims
France – Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday, 15th January 2020
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Licorne (Amiens).
The pressure was piled on Amiens at the weekend as they lost at home to Montpellier keeping the club in 18th place and 3 points from safety. The club have now lost 4 of their last 5 games and have earned just 6 points from their last 30.
Of course 18th place doesn’t completely mean relegation in Ligue 1 anymore and instead this position will play whoever finishes 3rd in Ligue 2 for a play-off match but Amiens can’t take that risk, form has been poor though. The club do get to stay at home when they take on Reims, although Amiens have not won at home for the last 3 games.
Reims lost away to Nimes 2-0 in what was seen as a poor result for the club and they fell to 10th place. They have earned 8 points from their last 15 and on the road the club have the 5th best record in the league. Although recent form has been questionable with just 1 win in their last four games. They have had a problem scoring goals with just 7 so far away from home.
Amiens vs Reims: Head to Head

Amiens vs Reims: Prediction
Both teams have different objectives; for Amiens they are looking to survive and even if they win this game they will still be in 18th place but will then have a chance to launch themselves out of the bottom three in the next game.
For Reims they are chasing a European finish. The problem for Reims is that everytime they find a good win they usually follow it up with a loss. They will be trying to avoid two defeats in a row but don’t have a great record against Amiens at the same time Amiens have been poor recently. We expect a low scoring game and will opt for the home win.
Amiens vs Reims: Bet Tips:
