A landmark match is on the board at Amiens against Lyon. The hosts are already heavily under pressure after four match days: Only one victory succeeded and three bankruptcies were cashed in parallel. Only the bottom of the table from Dijon has a downturn more.
Amiens vs Lyon Today’s Betting Prediction
After 2017 for the first time succeeded in promotion to Ligue 1, Amiens had to always deal with the bottom tables Gefilden. This will probably not be different in the current season. For the guests from Lyon, the game is no less important.
After two convincing victories at the season opener, the euphoria was great, but the winning streak tore through as unexpected as deserved defeat at Toulouse. Then there was reason to disappoint again, because only a draw against Bordeaux was possible against a home crowd.
The very young team does not seem to be consistent enough in their performances and can not constantly call up the unquestionably excessive potential. OL have never lost against the Licornes, and instead they have won all eight matches before.
In the ninth edition between Amiens and Lyon, the tip aims for the ninth victory, which, however, fails narrowly with only one goal difference. In addition, we expect a maximum of three goals during the game, as Lyon in the next week in the Champions League and therefore will keep up with the forces. The Amiens against Lyon prediction is played with a unit.
Amiens – Statistics & Current Form
The unicorns rescued by a final spurt last year before relegation. It was only the second season in club history in the upper house of French football. The start of the current season indicates that the fans once again tremble for relegation.
Especially the offensive has disappointed so far: Only three goals are scored on the first four matchdays – only bottom of the table Dijon and Montpellier have stinged even more with their own hits. One reason for the jamming is the violation of the Iranian Saman Ghoddos.
The 26-year-old is important for the game ahead at Amiens, because Ghoddos not only scores goals, but comparatively often prepared hits. In addition, the top scorer of the last season, the Senegal Moussa Konaté, not yet in good shape. The 26-year-old graduated in the summer of the Africa Cup and missed the complete preparation.
In the previous league games Konaté came only to short-term. On top of that, it can basically be stated that Amiens is simply quite weak. The quality of the squad is below average. Another question mark arises on the coaching bench of the 2001 Cup finalist.
After the season had ended, long-term coach Christophe Pélissier had to leave his place. Instead, Luka Elsner now has the job. The Slovenian is a pretty blank slate in the coaching business. Previously, he was tutor at the Royale Union Saint-Gilloise in Brussels.
The club plays only in the Proximus League in Belgium. Elsner did his job very well with the kickers from the St. Gilles district of Brussels. Among other things, he led the Blau-Gelb to the semi-finals of the Belgian Cup last year.
But whether Elsner has the makings of a higher-class club, the 37-year-old has yet to prove. The first games definitely raise doubts.

Lyon – Statistics & Current Form
The seven-time champion is likely to be doubled in the face of the international break in the last two weeks. On the one hand, the break is welcome, as the performance fell off before, on the other hand, Olympique had to turn off various players for missions in the respective national teams.
One example is Dutch striker Memphis Depay or Belgian captain and defender Jason Denayer.
The games for the home countries have of course cost strength, which is why this is a disadvantage compared to Amiens, which has to deal with such personnel problems in view of significantly fewer national players limited.
For Lyon is aggravating added that on top numerous U21 national team of France in the squad are present, who also left for missions. These included new signing Jeff Reine-Adelaide Angers or striker Amine Gouiri.
The latter 19-year-old showed in his campaign against the selection of Albania that he could be an additional interesting option for coach Sylvinho on offense. Due to injury, Gouiri has not played a single match for the Gones last season, but his talent has not been lost to the youngster.
With a double against Albania, the attacker reported impressive back. Already at the U20 World Cup last summer Gouiri was the most successful scorer of the Equipe Tricolore and Lyon has with him another uncut rough diamond.
For the upcoming match but fall out with Youssouf Kone in defense and Thiago Mendes equal to two players due to card locks. On the other hand, it is expected that Moussa Dembele will reappear. In the recent Heimremis against Bordeaux was also the only 21 -year-old attacker not participate.
The fact that Dembele had to sit on the bench for 90 minutes is likely to have been a disciplinary measure for a very poor performance previously against Montpellier. With three goals on the first two matchdays Dembele presented at least to the season opener Torgefahr again but proven.
Since the offensive player was not used in the national team, Dembele should be physically fit, which is why Amiens against Lyon, the odds for his next goal also represent a good idea.
Probable team of Lyon:
↳ Lopes – Andersen – Denayer – Dubois – Tete – Reine Adelaide – Tousart – Aouar – Depay – Dembele – Cornet
