Date: Saturday 3rd February 2017
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Licorne (Amiens).
It is 15th v 14th as one team has the chance to try and put some distance between themselves and the bottom three. Amiens are 1 point behind St Etienne and are 1 point ahead of the relegation zone. As the club prepare to play at home against the same quality side there can only be one result on their mind which is a home win.
After losing back to back home matches in December Amiens has gone their last 2 games in front of their own fans undefeated. Those were results against Guingamp with a convincing 3-1 win and a 1-1 draw over Montpellier. Overall recent form reads for grim viewing with just 1 win in their past 5 games.
St Etienne can’t buy an away win with 6 straight losses now despite changing manager. The club has the 3rd worst away record in the league picking up just 7 points from a possible 33. Along with ironically Amiens they have the worst goal scoring record when playing away with just 5 goals all season.
Amiens vs Saint-Etienne: Head to Head
The clubs have only played each other twice in recent times and St Etienne emerged victorious on both occasions. The 100% record saw over 2.5 goals
Amiens vs Saint-Etienne: Prediction
This is a huge game for both clubs and despite poor form St Etienne will have to step up. They are more accustomed to Ligue 1 football and are expected to benefit from that experience.
The newly promoted Amiens are not a bad side while playing at home therefore this will go down as a tight encounter.
Yet backing Etienne to win is a great price for this game; it comes with some risk but they are our pick.
