Amiens vs Reims
2018/19 French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 25th August 2018
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Licorne (Amiens).
Amiens are searching for their first win after losing their two opening games of the season. Lyon beat them 2-0 and then when Amiens played their first home game of the season they were beaten 2-1 by Montpellier. Now they return back home and will want to get something from this match.
The problem for Amiens is that even though they are facing a newly promoted side in Reims, the away side have had a superb start to the season. A 1-0 away victory at Nice was followed up by another win over Lyon by the same scoreline. The French media has been shocked and Reims who were very poor the last time they were in Ligue 1 have won two games that everyone thought they would lose and on top of that they are yet to concede.
The bookmakers cannot split the teams and mostly they are the same price coming into this game, although some have Reims as the slight favourites.
Amiens vs Reims: Head to Head
The last time the teams played here was in 2016 and the match finished 1-1.
Amiens have not won at home v Reims for 4 games going back 10 years.
The last 5 times where Amiens have been the home team the goals have been under 2.5.
Amiens vs Reims: Prediction
The only reason Reims are not the big favourites is because they have a history of beating very good teams but then dropping points to underperforming ones.
But we should put some trust in Reims, they have a new coach, new players and veteran players such as Diego have moved on, so maybe they have turned a page. We will take the away win option which is a very good price and great value.
