Reason For Amiens vs Monaco Betting Tips:
Two sides at opposite ends of Ligue 1 meet this Friday when newly promoted Amiens host current champions Monaco. Despite the hosts managing some improved results in recent weeks before the international break, they still find themselves just one point and one place above the relegation zone after their first 11 matches.
Thankfully for Amiens, there are several other teams in and around them so there doesn’t look to be any danger of them being cut adrift as the campaign progresses. The side are now unbeaten in their last four encounters in league and cup action, and although this weekend’s game will most likely be a very tough one to gain any points from, they then face fellow strugglers Lille and Metz in the following two matches, which should be ideal opportunities to get much-needed points on the board.
Monaco meanwhile, despite struggling badly in the Champions League, are doing their best to defend the title they sensationally claimed last season. Leonardo Jardim’s team are now four points behind leaders PSG, with bookmakers predicting they will be the only side to post a creditable challenge for the championship.
Ahead of the game they have been dealt a blow with the news that prolific striker Radamel Falcao has suffered a hamstring injury, which suggests that he will not be able to play in this one. Nonetheless, the side have scored 34 times already in Ligue 1 this season and should have more than enough to get the three points.
We see there being goals in this one and are advising that punters back an Over 2.5 Match Goals bet, while for an alternative bet we suggest backing Over 2.5 Goals and Monaco to win.
For our correct score prediction, we think Monaco will win the encounter 3-0, while for those looking to place an anytime goalscorer bet, we think the away team’s young forward Keita Balde, who has three goals in six outings, looks good value to notch in this one.
Friday’s game will be the first time Amiens and Monaco have played against each other.
