Lyon vs Amiens
French Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday, 5th February 2020
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Groupama Stadium (Lyon).
Just when it seemed like Lyon had found some form, they lost at the weekend away to Nice. Up to the defeat they have put together 3 games in a row unbeaten.
Lyon will be hot favourites to win this game though. Lyon come into this game in 6th place and are just 1 win in effect from 4th and that is how close the league is right now. At home Lyon’s form is poor by their standards and they have won just 40% of their games this includes losing 2 of their last three games here. Although they did win their last home beating bottom side Toulouse.
Amiens are in 18th place and have lost 11 games this season. They are losing touch with safety now and are 5 points behind Dijon. The club drew their last game 0-0 v Toulouse and away from home they have lost 7 games from 11 winning just once all season. The club are conceding 2 goals on average per game on the road.
Lyon vs Amiens: Head to Head
- Last season Lyon won this game 2-0.
- Earlier this season in the reverse game the teams played out a 2-2 draw.
- The teams have played each other 7 times recently and Lyon have 6 wins, there has been one draw and Amiens have no wins.
Lyon vs Amiens: Prediction
We think that Lyon can get back on to winning ways and after losing to Nice to play Amiens at home with the club in 18th feels like the perfect match for the club.
But Lyon are 1.30 to win so we will take them to win at half time. We will also stick with Maxwell Cornet as we backed him last weekend but this time they are back at home and Cornet seems more comfortable to get goals here.
Lyon vs Amiens: Bet Tips:
Lyon to be winning at half time at 1.80 (4/5)
Anytime goalscorer: Maxwell Cornet (Lyon) at 3.25 (9/4).
