Monaco vs Amiens
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 18th May 2019
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Louis II (Monaco).
When Leonardo Jardim was brought back to Monaco after Thierry Henry’s nightmare with the club it was thought that they would be safe. While Jardim’s Monaco did find form and escape the relegation zone the problem is that they stayed either 16th or 17th. They come into this game after having poor form in 17th and have the same points as Caen with 33 who are in 18th. In short there is now a realistic chance that Monaco, the 2017 champions could be relegated.
This match against Amiens is Monaco’s last home game of the season and their final match will be against Nice, the local derby, so it is very important that they win this game. Monaco have lost 3 of their last 4 games and have not won a match in 2 months.
Amiens come into this game one place above Monaco but they are two points in front of them on 35. They could do with picking up something from this game because the club who do look safe could get dragged into the relegation zone.
Amiens have only lost one game from their past five but they have no wins in that time with their other 4 games all ending in draws. The club have one of the poorest away records in Ligue 1 and have won just 2 games all season on the road.
Monaco vs Amiens: Head to Head

From the last 5 meetings, 3 of the games have finished in draws and Amiens have no wins.
Monaco vs Amiens: Prediction
The 1.62 being quoted on a Monaco win doesn’t feel like good value considering how poor the club have been. They simply do not look up to the task, so the best bet here is to back in different markets and the goalscorers one could be the way to go.
Radamel Falcao scored both of Monaco’s goals when they beat Amiens this season and he should be on our list to score again at the weekend. For smaller stakes we will back the correct score.
This is sure to be a tense game for both sides but more so for Monaco who will be under much more pressure to get the result at home.
