Lyon vs Amiens
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 14th April 2018
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Parc Olympique Lyonnais (Lyon).
Lyon were terrific in beating bottom side Metz 5-0 and they completed the job that many would expect of them with little fuss. It was refreshing to see Lyon play this way because too many times this season they have made heavy work of what should have been a routine win.
Lyon’s fight is with Marseille for the 3rd position which they hold but the clubs have the same points, 63, so every week and game will count. But Lyon are in superb form having won 4 games in a row. At home they have lost just 2 games from 15, and will start this match as the clear favourites.
Amiens know they have a big game on their hands and they must try to enjoy the experience. The club will be safe this season and they come into this game like Lyon in good form and are unbeaten in their last 4 games. But they have played some weaker teams lately but confidence will be high. Away from home Amiens recent form has been good too and they are unbeaten in 3 games but this is a huge step up for them.
Lyon vs Amiens: Head to Head
- Earlier this season Lyon beat Amiens 2-1 away from home

Lyon vs Amiens: Prediction
Lyon’s odds are too short to back so we will look into goal markets and players that are on form. This game should be a home win and if Lyon can show some of their style of play like they did last weekend this should be a comfortable win for them and us.
