Monaco vs Amiens
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 7th December 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Louis II.
These two teams have something in common and that is recent games being postponed because of the weather.
Monaco were supposed to play PSG last weekend, but the game couldn’t take place with terrible weather, so they had some rest before they had to play Toulouse in midweek, and they won that game 2-1.
Form is inconsistent and they have gained 9 points from their last 15 but lost 2 games from their last five. But Monaco are all about their home form at this moment and they come into this game having won their last 4 home matches in a row. They will be odds on favourites to win this game.
Amiens are in 17th place and are five points behind Monaco. They have lost their last 3 games in a row with their last match ending in a 4-2 loss against Montpellier.
Amiens have a poor away record and have gained just 6 points from a possible 24. They have just one win away all season. With recent defeats against Montpellier and Rennes the club have conceded 7 goals in their last two away matches, and that doesn’t bode well for this game.
Monaco vs Amiens: Head to Head
Last season Monaco won this game 2-0.
The clubs have played just 6 matches in recent times and 5 of them have been under 2.5 goals.
The teams have played 3 times at Monaco, with 1 win for Monaco and 2 draws.
Monaco vs Amiens: Prediction
Monaco are around 1.44 to win which we don’t think represents good value given that 66% of their games at home to Amiens have ended in a draw. This is why we will avoid this market and concentrate on goals and players.
Amiens are shipping a few and Monaco seem to have their stride back in getting goals so we will back to see some on Saturday.
Wissam Ben Yedder has been a brilliant purchase for Monaco and he scored in midweek and we will back him again to get on the score sheet.
Monaco vs Amiens: Bet Tips
Over 2.5 goals at 1.62 (8/13)
Anytime goalscorer: Wissam Ben Yedder (Monaco) at 1.91 (10/11).
