Amiens won 3 important points last week after a smart performance. They were extremely organized and focused primarily on closing down all spaces. The plan worked and Amiens won 1-0 away at Strasbourg.
Amiens can be extremely efficient when doing the defensive phase. Their tackles are very precise and midfielders always cover for defenders.
Sometimes it can be a bit difficult for Amiens to create scoring opportunities, but at the moment forward Kakuta and Konate are in good form, after having scored 2 goals each in the last 2 rounds.
In Ligue 1 Marseille are sitting on 2 consecutive defeats, but at least they got back to winning days in Europa League, after winning 1-0 against Konyaspor. Unfortunately the performance in Europa League was far from impressive, and although they imposed the rhythm, Marseille could only find the winner following a set piece (corner).
They scored in all Ligue 1 games so far, but recently it seems they have difficulties converting chances.
Marseille continue to miss keeper Mandanda.
Amiens are highly organized, and Marseille will find it extremely difficult to get inside the penalty box, especially since attacking players aren’t exactly in good form. Amiens have an excellent chance to continue the good run. Amiens +0.5 at 1.90
