Monaco vs Amiens
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 28th April 2018
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Louis II (Monaco).
It’s fair to say that Monaco have been a little shell shocked recently and have had some terrible results. Easily beaten in the Coupe de la Ligue final against PSG, they then saw their champions-status disappear when PSG won the league and beat them 7-1 in an incredible game in Paris. Then last weekend they lost away to Guingamp 3-1, can it get any worse for coach Louis Jardim’s side?
The answer is yes because their Champions League qualification for next season hangs in the balance and they have seen a 7 point gap reduced to just one. And Monaco are not fighting with one team but two in Lyon and Marseille. In short this match at home to Amiens is a must win.
The good news for Monaco is that their home record has been excellent winning five games in a row and the club has just one loss at home all season. They have gained an incredible 44 points from a possible 51 at home.
Amiens are in 13th place on 40 points and the good news for them is that they are safe and can travel to Monaco with a relaxed atmosphere within the squad. The team will want to enjoy this game. Recent form is good with 3 wins from their last four matches, although these have all been against teams ranked lower than them.
Away from home Amiens has lost 10 of their 17 games and have scored just 10 goals on the road all season.
