France Ligue 1
(20 Dec 2017)
Amiens – Nantes
Amiens welcomes Nantes in a match of the 19th round of the French Ligue 1.
Amiens: The home team is in the 13th position of the table with 21 points won after 6 wins, 3 draws and 9 losses. After going unbeaten for seven games and three straight wins in Ligue 1, Amiens now find themselves on a bad run of three straight losses by losing (1-0) to Troyes in the previous round. Also, the main problem for this team is the number of goals their players have scored, 16 goals in 18 matches, which is the third-worst attack in the league.
Nantes: The away team is currently taking the 5th position in the league with 30 points won after 9 wins, 3 draws and 6 losses. They come into this game after a win (1-0) over struggling Angers. However, Nantes is still five points below the European qualification places. Therefore, they will give everything to stop their bad run of five games without a win on the road and will be counting on their strong defence.
Conclusion: Amiens will try to put some distance between themselves and the relegation zone going into this round 19 encounter, while Nantes, surprisingly, will attempt to move closer to the top three. Also, this match will mark the first-ever meeting between them in Ligue 1 history and both teams want to grab more points before the winter break. However, this match features a low-scoring home team and visitors who are weak on the road, therefore we can’t expect much excitement on the field.
