Amiens are playing at home against Lyon for a second time this week, but this time in a match of Ligue 1. On Thursday, the home team lost with 2-0 against The Kids for Coupe de France, although Lyon played the whole second half with a player less. Amiens are in a heavy position in Ligue 1, and with just two wins in the last 12 fixtures, they are a point from the relegation zone. At home, The Unicorns don’t have success in five straight games, while their only victories on Stade de la Licorne were against Dijon, Rennes and Reims – which are teams that are not in the leading position in the standings.
Lyon are in a fantastic form and deservedly climbed to the third position in the standings. The Kids have just one defeat in the last 12 fixtures in the league. As expected, Lyon are one of the best away teams in Ligue 1, as they were defeat as guest only by PSG and Reims at the start of the season.
Until now, The Kids never have lost points in the games against Amiens, and we think that the tendency will be kept. The Unicorns don’t have the needed quality to oppose to the leading teams in the league, and already lost twice as a host against Lyon, although they were for the cups of France. Recently The Kids are playing amazing attacking football, and we think that they will score at least once against this opponent.
