Amiens – Olympique Marseille, Ligue 1 Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR AMIENS - MARSEILLE
Amiens this season will again struggle to survive in all appearances. Elsner’s team is located close to the danger zone, but is still outside. They play offensive football and have already won vs Lille home, which was perhaps their most significant success. They also score a lot of goals – they only have one game without a goal, but they have one of the weakest defenses in the league. The Russian makes frequent changes to his squad as he is still looking for the right scheme. The home side are the most dangerous on the left flank.
In Marseille, the absent players continued to have a negative influence on the team in recent games. They did not win again, because of Payet and Kamara absence. Olympique are expected to win the match. Because for now the championship is pretty much even Marseille are close to the top 2 – only 3 points, so nothing fatal happened to them.
Expert view : We think that with the continuing suspension of Kamara Marseille they will be much more vulnerable and able to concede goals vs Amiens. On the other hand, we believe that Amiens is capable of surprises and in such matches he can be expected to perform at his best. We don’t want to take a risk with the sign, so we go for goals that are much more likely. Prediction – Over 2.0 – Asian Goal Line at 1.60.
In 7 of Amien’s last 8 games there have been at least 2 goals, most of them 3
