Amiens welcome the visitors Angers in the French Ligue 1 – Round 18. The match will be held on Tuesday, January 8th, at the Stade de la Licorne (Amiens).
In 2 latest rounds, Amiens managed to attain 4 points, winning over the rock-bottom Guingamp and drawing against Bordeaux, which improved the team’s position a little – now they are 4 points away from the relegation zone. This failing Amiens’ placement is mostly attributed to their weak attacking line. There are no players to score – the teams’ best striker is the midfielder Eddy Gnahore counting 4 goals in his tally. That’s all there is to tell. Overall, Amiens made 17 goals in 18 rounds. Only the 3 outsiders below in the table feature a worse record, as well as Nice and Reims.

Though Angers taste no defeat in 5 successive matches (4 draws and 1 win – all the matches were underscoring), they are doing not much better than their Tuesday opponent. The team are just 2 points ahead of Amiens, their attack are not blistering, and they made only 3 goals more than the rival.
The opponents’ head-to-heads were hardly effective. Over the last 17 years, the teams met 13 times, and 10 encounters saw 2 goals at most. Furthermore, 8 previous games produced under 2.5 goals. Considering that Amiens and Angers are not scoring much lately, these shutouts will most likely continue in the coming clash as well. Both sides are close to the drop zone. Entertainment will not be crucial on Tuesday, pragmatism will probably prevail. The team that manage to score first (if there is one) will certainly forget about the opponent’s goal, trying to defend themselves safely, which will result in an underscoring outcome.
Prediction for the match: Under 2.5 goals.
