Amiens vs Strasbourg
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 28th April 2019
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Licorne (Amiens).
Amiens lost 3-2 to Nantes last weekend which ended a 4-game unbeaten run although all those games were draws.
The club are still in danger of relegation or having to play in a play-off for survival. They are currently safe in 17th but there is just a difference of 4 points.
The teams strategy has been simple and that has been to turn up at home and be strong.
Fans have been told to give the best atmosphere they can and it has been working and for a team in 17th their home record is very good as they haven’t lost for the past 5 games. They have earned 11 points from their last 15 at home and their last game here ended in a 2-2 draw with Saint Etienne.
Strasbourg come here in 10th place on 44 points with a European place looking dead now.
Recent form hasn’t helped where they have earned just 2 points from their last 9 and their last match ended in a 3-1 home loss to Montpellier. That was the moment that ended that.
At the same time we have to remember that Strasbourg won the Coupe de la Ligue and are in Europe anyway next season and they have switched off a little.
Amiens vs Strasbourg: Head to Head
Earlier this season Strasbourg beat Amiens 3-1.
Last season in this fixture it was Amiens who won and by the same scoreline of 3-1.
Amiens have won the last 3 meetings against Strasbourg when they have been at home.
Amiens vs Strasbourg: Prediction
Strasbourg will know that this won’t be an easy game and Amiens have become a very difficult side to beat in recent weeks.
Amiens have more to fight for now and have done very well over the past five weeks or so. And yet they could still go down. Three points would be massive here and even though they lost to Nantes last week they put in a good shift and they have the players to win this game.
Strasbourg have an incredibly poor record at this stadium, and we will be backing the home side to get all 3 points.
