Match Preview

Amiens’ 4-0 loss versus Strasbourg, in their last Ligue 1 (L1) outing at home, saw them end a run of successive competitive home victories at three games. In turn, five of their last six L1 home games have now featured over 2.5 goals, while four of the last five have seen exactly four goals (total).
Encouragingly though, Amiens have scored first – and done so in the opening 30 minutes – in four of their last five L1 home fixtures. However, they can also be guilty of surrendering that advantage shortly after, and have in fact conceded the equaliser within the following 15 minutes on three occasions.
Visitors Reims have seen all but one of their 15 league games this season produce less than 2.5 goals, with at least one team drawing a blank on 12 occasions. Moreover, nine of their matches this term have also produced a goalless first half.
Sticking with a potentially low-scoring theme, the visitors have seen over 2.5 goals in only three of their last 22 away league outings, while six of their seven L1 road trips this campaign have featured only one side scoring.
Players to watch: Amiens’ joint-top league scorer Stiven Mendoza has scored four goals so far, three of which have come in the first/last 15 minutes of play.
Reims striker Boulaye Dia has netted three of his four L1 strikes on the road. All were scored after the break.
Stat attack: Almost half (42.86%) of Amiens’ home league games this campaign have produced over 2.5 first half goals – a league high.
By contrast, Reims’ L1 fixtures this term have averaged 0.53 first-half goals per game – a league low.
At all venues, each of the two historical league H2Hs have featured over 3.5 goals.
Reims have conceded first in just 30.77% (eight) of their last 26 L1 away matches.
