The Amiens will be tasked with maintaining their place in Ligue 1 next season. They opened the visiting season for Nice, which was lost by 2-1, with the home side winning Dante da Costa in the 95th minute of the duel, which was certainly disappointing, but Luka Elsner still managed to win in the next round on his Stade Crédit Agricole de la Licorne against Lille with a goal of 1:0 to score Serhou Guirassy in the 70th minute. In the next two matches, however, another two defeats followed, the first of which was at home to Nantes 2-1, and before the break to play the matches of the national teams followed by a 2-0 loss from Toulouse at Stadium de Toulouse which left Amiens with an asset by just 3 points and ranked 18th in the provisional standings only ahead of Monaco and Dijon.
Lyon definitely had a pretty busy summer making money after selling Tanguy Ndombélé for 60 mil. Euro to Tottenham Hotspur, Ferland Mendy for 48 mil. real Madrid and quite surprisingly Nabil Fekir for only 20m. Real Betis, but that will certainly weaken the squad, though alternates have been attracted, but they have yet to prove themselves as 21-year-old Jeff Reine-Adélaïde, who was taken for 25 mil. Euros from Angers and 23-year-old Joachim Andersen who was paid £ 24m. Euro to Sampdoria.
However, the start of the season for The Kids was more than impressive as they won 3-0 at Stade Louis II against Monaco and then defeated their Groupama Stadium with 6-0 Angers by scoring two goals for Moussa Dembélé and Memphis Depay. But then came the first defeat of 1-0 on Montpellier’s visit and in the last round they failed to win at home against Bordeaux, ending 1-1 after Memphis Depay gave Lyon the lead but Jimmy Briand’s goal brought the visitors’ point.
The difference in the classes of the two teams is big and I think that the home advantage of Amiens will not be enough for them to earn points against Lyon who will seek at all costs a victory after failing to achieve one in the last two rounds and the match against Amiens is a great opportunity to earn the three points.
