Amiens vs Nice Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

The newcomers Amiens are still searching for their first victory of the new Ligue 1 campaign when they welcome Nice at the Stade de la Licorne on Saturday evening. Amiens lost 3-0 on the road at Saint-Etienne last weekend in a game in which they delivered just one shot on target. On the other hand, Nice won 2-0 at home over Guingamp thanks to goals from Alassane Plea and Remi Walter. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Both teams have struggled in this early part of the season and both looked short in front of goal. I’m not expecting a high-scoring affair, but Nice definitely have more quality within their ranks and they should be able to grab all three points. Three of the last five meetings between these two sides have seen few than three goals scored.

Nice to win at 6/5

Under 2.5 goals at 4/6

Amiens saw over 1.5 goals in 8 out of their last 10 games played

Amiens Preview

Amiens had a difficult start to life in Ligue 1 with a visit to PSG, but actually, they looked much worse in the subsequent games against Angers and Saint-Etienne. The most worrying fact is that the newcomers have failed to score a single goal in the opening three league fixtures and have conceded at least two goals in each of these. They will be desperate to get at least one point here, but they face a Nice side who also need points after their disappointing start of the season. Amiens are rock bottom of the league table and are the only Ligue 1 side to have failed to score in the first three league games. Overall, they are currently on a six-game losing streak across all competitions, including games from pre-season, having scored just once in the process. The departure of their last season’s topscorer Aboubakar Kamara to Fulham this summer has affected them more than expected, particularly because they haven’t brought in any decent replacements. At home, Amiens are winless in their last four home games across all competitions, but the good news is that they picked up back-to-back wins in their most recent two home meetings with Nice.

Amiens Team News

Guessouma Fofana is the only injury absentee for Amiens ahead of this game.

Nice Preview

Nice have also struggled in this early part of the season, losing back-to-back games at the hands of Saint-Etienne and Troyes in the opening two league games. They bounced back with a 2-0 home win over Guingamp last weekend, but the bad news is that were beaten by SSC Napoli in their Champions League midweek clash to lose 4-0 on aggregate. This means that Nice will be playing in the Europa League group stage this season, with the draw taking place on Friday. Conceding has been Nice’s biggest problem of late as they have allowed at least two goals in four of their last six games across all competitions. Nice find themselves in 11th spot in the standings tied on three points with other five teams. Away from home, Nice have only won three of their last ten games across all competitions and are currently on a four-game winless run, conceding at least two goals in three of these. Alassane Plea has been Nice’s most prolific player in front of goal in this early part of the campaign, having scored two goals in his three league appearances. He has been suspended for Nice’s second-leg clash with Napoli, which means that he should be 100% fit for this trip to Amiens.

Nice Team News

Mounir Obbadi and Mickael Le Bihan are both doubts, but Wylan Cyprien is out through a cruciate ligament injury. In addition, Dante is missing through suspension.
