Angers vs Amiens
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 16 March 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Raymond Kopa (Angers).
Angers come into this game in 12th place and are very safe as they are 14 points above the relegation zone. Once the club knew they were going to be safe this season they have eased off a little and they have no wins in their last 3 games.
Their last match did end 2-2 away to Montpellier in an entertaining game and their last home match also ended 2-2 against Monaco. Indeed at home Angers recent form is still good and they have picked up 10 points from their last 12 available.
Unlike Angers, Amiens really need the points They come into this game in 16th place with 28 points although it could be likely that Monaco at one point could pass them. The good news is that they have a 7 point advantage over the bottom three but the bad news is that could easily be swallowed up in the next couple of games. Amiens will not feel safe unless they get 2 more wins under their belt.
Angers vs Amiens: Head to Head

Angers vs Amiens: Prediction
Angers will start as favourites to win but they do not have much motivation to do so. At the same time they have strong recently at home. Also in the last decade Amiens do not have any wins at this ground, but many games have finished in a draw. Amiens have beaten Nimes and Nice lately and are in good form but they do have the 2nd worst away record in the league. If they fight hard for this game we should back them on the double chance.
