Amiens vs Troyes
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 17th March 2018
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Licorne (Amiens).

This will be a very interesting match on Saturday night when Amiens take on Troyes. Both are suffering near the bottom of the table and a win for either team would be 3 massive points.

Amiens are in 16th place on 30 points and are two points in a safe zone. They have just 1 win in their past five games which came away to Nantes but other than that the club have been struggling lately. The club have gone 3 games without a win at home.

Troyes are in 18th place, and yet a win could see them through to safety. They come into this game having lost 3 matches in a row and their last win came 4 weeks ago. It’s fair to say that both clubs have very similar form coming into this game. Troyes have lost 11 games from 14 played away and they have the 2nd to worst record in the league having won just 7 points from a possible 42.

Amiens vs Troyes: Head to Head

  • Amiens have not won at home v Troyes since 2005
  • Earlier this season Troyes won the reverse fixture 1-0

Amiens vs Troyes: Prediction

Both teams have poor form although if we study Amiens home form we can see that when they have dropped points and lost it has been against top 10 sides with better quality.

Therefore, Amiens can get something from this game, and our main bet will be to see the match as a draw but at half time. Troyes poor away form isn’t set to become better with this game and the hosts will be up for the fight to push on through the 30 point barrier.
