Match Preview

Amiens welcome Angers in this rescheduled Ligue 1 (L1) encounter, with the hosts keen to end a run of three straight home league losses – their worst winless streak at home in the club’s short L1 history.
However, with a 1-1 draw at Bordeaux in their previous league outing making it just one victory in their last five L1 fixtures (W1, D1, L3), Amiens head into this match in relatively poor form. Moreover, the ‘Picards’ have the division’s fourth worst home defensive record with 14 goals conceded, with half of those coming in their last three matches here. Curiously, four of those 14 conceded goals came from the penalty spot – a league high!
Despite holding L1’s second-worst away possession rate (41%), Angers have lost only one of their last six league fixtures on the road (W2, D3, L1), scoring in all but one of those games. In fact Stéphane Moulin’s side have netted the opening goal in four of their last five away league outings.
However, Angers were on the embarrassing end of a cup shock at the weekend, getting knocked out of the Coupe de France by sixth-tier side Viry-Châtillon (1-0).
Players to watch: Eddy Gnahoré has scored two of his four L1 goals in Amiens’ last two fixtures. He will go head-to-head with Angers’ top scorer Stéphane Bahoken, who has five goals so far – four of which were scored in the first half of matches.
Stat attack: Amiens have scored in 12 of their previous 13 home league games.
Angers have registered just two clean sheets in their last 12 top-flight away games.
The hosts are one of just two teams this campaign that are yet to draw a L1 match at home.
Both teams have scored in only one of the last eight competitive H2Hs, with four of those encounters ending with a 2-0 scoreline.
