Amiens welcome the visitors Monaco in the French Ligue 1 – Round 16. The match will be held on Tuesday, December 4th at the Stade de la Licorne (Amiens).
Amiens are not brilliant, to say the least. They got only 13 points in 15 rounds, and, as a result, they currently occupy the 16th line in the standings yet. Nevertheless, on their soil, the team won 3 times and conceded 4. But mind the opponents they lost to – the 10th Nantes, the 6th Marseille, the 4th Lille, and the 3rd Montpellier, which means the top-flight teams but for Nantes (who are no peach either these days). Amiens hit the woodwork in all these 7 matches, keeping their goal locked only once though – when winning the bottom-third Dijon.

As for Monaco, they have changed their head coach yet. Henry has rather a limited coaching experience, to be frank, or, rather, he does not have one at all. How can he possibly have that experience, being a plyer himself just 4 years back? He used to be an assistant coach in the coaching staff of the London Arsenal and the national team of Belgium. This is it. Monaco have played 9 matches under his guidance. At first, they even managed to end in a draw in 2 consecutive games, then things have fallen into place. They lost to Brugge in the second leg and lost to Stade Reims in the championship. In the last round, however, Henry celebrated his 1st win as a head coach in the clash with Сaen, conceding in the next round though (in their home surroundings, but there was 1 goal scored by Monaco there).
We’d better not predict the winner in the coming match. What if Henry found a way to motivate his team? What if they stop walking on the pitch and start moving, being more active and aggressive, and finally begin getting points? Their win over Caen was very logical – they possessed more and they had more shots on goal, which resulted in their 2nd victory in the championship. Even in the last round that they lost to Montpellier, they won the first halve but then…allowed 2 goals 9 minutes before the end of the game. Amiens lose to leaders only at home, as mentioned above, and Monaco will most likely manage to take advantage over it. Not sure if they can win, but they will have enough chances to score. Regardless of their current pathetic performance, Monaco did not score only in 2 in 7 matches on their travels. The teams did not have many head-to-heads, as they did not play often in the same league. Over the last 19 years, they played 5 matches and exchanged goals in 4 of them. If to remember that neither the hosts (27 missed goals in 15 rounds), nor the guests (24 goals) have any decent defense, and put it all together, it is very realistic to expect another goal exchange by the opponents in the Tuesday match.
Prediction for the match: Both teams to score.
