Match Preview

If the season ended today, both Amiens (18th, 13 pts) and Monaco (19th, 10 pts) would be relegated to Ligue 2. The visitors (W1, D1, L3) are in slightly better form than their hosts (W1, L4), but there’s no question this game has all the makings of a classic “six-pointer” in the race to avoid relegation.
Amiens are riding a two-game losing streak, conceding three goals in both of those matches. In fact they’ve conceded at least two goals in eight of their ten Ligue 1 (L1) losses this campaign. At home, the hosts are yet to draw a game (W3, L4) and entertainment has been high, with three or more goals and both teams scoring in six of their seven L1 home fixtures.
Monaco have been one of L1’s most disappointing sides this season, with one of the main reasons for their struggles being an inability to turn things around when going behind. Monaco have been losing at half-time and full-time in seven league matches this season, the second-highest mark in L1.
Perhaps surprisingly, the visitors have picked up their only two league victories of the season on the road (W2, D1, L4), and have conceded just nine goals on their travels – six less than at home – meaning Monaco boast the league’s fourth-best away defence.
Players to watch: Saman Ghoddos (three goals) could be Amiens’ biggest threat in the final third, while Radamel Falcao(five goals) will lead Monaco’s attacking line.
Stat attack: There’s been a goal from the 80th minute to full-time in four of Amiens’ last five home matches.
Monaco have scored the first goal in three of their last five L1 games.
The all-time H2H record favours Monaco (W1, D4), with only two of those five matches featuring over 2.5 goals. The two encounters played last season both ended in a stalemate.
