Amiens vs Marseille - Prediction, Odds and Betting Tips - 04.10.2019

Amiens come into this game hoping to regain some momentum after going winless in their last three Ligue 1 (L1) home outings (D1, L2). Moreover, the fact that the hosts have lost the eight previous H2Hs across France’s top two tiers could fill their fans with a sense of dread here.
Encouragingly though, Amiens often shut out the opposition at home, with six of their last 12 L1 home games seeing them register a clean sheet. They can also take confidence from the fact they have scored the opener in four of their last five L1 home fixtures, returning a record of: W2, D1, L1, after doing so.
Despite registering just three clean sheets across their last 18 L1 away fixtures, Marseille journey here unbeaten on the road this L1 campaign (W2, D2). In addition, if the ‘Olympians’ avoid defeat in this one, it will be the first time since 2015/16 that any Marseille side has gone unbeaten in eight straight L1 away matches.
The visitors also possess L1’s joint-fourth best away defence, after conceding just 1.0 goals on average per away fixture. That’s a surprising statistic considering that 41.82% (23) of the shot attempts (55) that Marseille have conceded on the road landed on target – L1’s second-worst rate.
Players to watch: Amiens’ top league scorer Stiven Mendoza has scored his two L1 strikes in the opening 15 minutes. Meanwhile, Marseille striker Darío Benedetto has netted three of his four L1 goals this term on the road.
Stat attack: Over half (12) of Amiens’ last 23 home league games have produced a goalless first half.
Five of Marseille’s last six L1 away games have produced a draw at half-time.
However, none of the eight previous league H2Hs have ended in a stalemate.
