Amiens vs Saint-Etienne
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 6th April 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Licorne (Amiens)
Amiens are in 17th and would ideally like a couple of more wins under their belt to feel safe in the league. However they do have a 7 point advantage to the bottom three but it only takes a couple of games to have that almost swallowed up.
The club come into this game in good form and are unbeaten in their last 5 games. The problem is that they have been drawing a lot and three of thiose matches have ended that way. Their last game ended in a draw a 0-0 one against Bordeaux but it has been encouraging that the side are not used to losing of late.
Amiens have not lost at home in 4 games and that goes back to the end of January when Lyon came here and won.
Saint Etienne have different goals to their opponents and they are aiming for 3rd and a Champions League spot but the problem is that they are currently 7 points behind Lyon. They will need Lyon to go on some bad form to have any chance and it does feel remote. At the same time a Europa League finish is very possible and the club come into this game winning their last two matches which includes beating Caen 5-0 away from home.
Amiens vs Saint-Etienne: Head to Head
In the reverse fixture earlier this season this match finished 0-0.
Last season Saint Etienne won this fixture at Amiens 2-0.
Amiens have no wins in the last and most recent 3 meetings between the teams.
Amiens vs Saint-Etienne: Prediction
You have to wonder where the biggest motivation lies with the two sides and surely it is with Saint Etienne. At the same time we must respect Amiens quality and form and if it is to end we could expect that to happen away from home. This is why we will take the risky choice of this match finishing in a draw. To make it easier for us we will back the draw at half time. We should see a decent game of football but at the same time we don’t expect to see many goals. This could be decided by a very narrow score line.
