Amiens vs Lyon Prediction & Match Preview
Friday, September 13 – 14:45 EST – Stade de la Licorne
Amiens have not had the best start to the season. They currently sit in 18th place with just three points. The home side managed to secure their only win of the season against Lille, who were down to ten men. In their last match against Nantes, they managed to hit only three shots. This is rather concerning considering the fact that they face a far more dominant side this Friday. Amiens have not had much success against Lyon in the past. They will need to make some major adjustments or we can expect history to repeat itself in this match once again.
Lyon began the season in exceptional form. In their first match they defeated Monaco 3-0. Their second match against Angers was an impressive 6-0 win. However, it seems like all of this momentum came to end as they lost their third match of the season 1-0 to Montpellier. This was followed by a 1-1 draw at home to Bordeaux. Despite this, Lyon have been great on the road. They will look to get back to their winning ways after the international break. Lyon are unbeaten against Amiens in their last 5 matches. In these five matches, they have managed to find the back of the net eleven times, conceding only twice.
