Lille v Amiens
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 1st April 2018
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade Pierre Mauroy (Lille).
Lille are in 19th place and time is running out for the club to escape the relegation zone. The good news is that one win could take them out of the bottom three. However Lille’s form is poor where they have picked up just 6 points from their past 30.
At home Lille has not won in 4 games going back to when they beat Strasbourg at the end of January. Interestingly apart from the loss to PSG, Lille has scored in 4 out of their last 5 games at home.
Amiens in 16th place are ripe for getting sucked into a battle and have 31 points and are just two points clear of the bottom three. They have drawn back to back games coming into this match and have won just 1 game from their last six.
Amiens are quite unpredictable on the road, they have won just 3 games all season but one of those was a recent win at difficult Nantes, but they won’t be the favourites to win this game. The club has scored just 9 goals away from home this season and only Caen with 7 have a worse record.
Lille v Amiens: Head to Head
The teams only have one recent match to consider which was the earlier fixture played at Amiens where the home side won 3-0. The half time score was 1-0 to Amiens.
Lille v Amiens: Prediction
Amiens do not score many goals away from home and Lille hardly has a team of strikers to set Ligue 1 on fire. So we have just one solid prediction for this match and that is to see few goals. Our final bet for this game is to see under 2.5 goals.
