Amiens vs Marseille Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


Amiens and Marseille are set to produce a tight contest in their French Ligue 1 fixture at the Stade Credit Agricole de la Licorne. Both teams have been poor in recent weeks and are struggling for goals,  making under 2.5 goals the most likely outcome on Friday.

Amiens SC Form & Team News


Amiens are coming off a 1-1 draw at Angers in Ligue 1. They took an early first half lead through John Mendoza but were pegged back by the hosts seven minutes from time.

Les Licornes have been plagued by inconsistency this season and head into Friday’s clash with one win and two draws in their last four matches. Luka Elsner's men are priced at 3.20 for a win but having failed to score more than once in each of their last five home matches, I am backing under 2.5 goals here at 1.73.

Juan Otero is usually the man tasked with leading the line for Amiens but the striker is still seeking his first goal of the season. He is usually supported by John Mendoza, who has scored twice since his return from a long-term knee injury.

Olympique de Marseille Form & Team News


Marseille also played out a draw last time out as they were held 1-1 at home against Rennes. They fought back from a goal down with Duje Caleta-Car’s effort in 52 minutes earning them a share of the spoils.

It was the second straight draw for Les Olympiens, who were also held 1-1 at home by Montpellier in their previous outing. A win for Andre Villas Boas' men is priced at 2.30 but given their recent results, another draw is predicted at odds of 3.10.

Marseille are depleted at the moment with Dimitri Payet and Kevin Strootman both suspended while Florian Thauvin is out with injury. Dario Benedetto should continue to lead the line despite failing to score in his last three matches.

Amiens vs Marseille Head to Head


Marseille have never lost in this fixture, winning all four previous matches against Amiens. The most recent meeting was a 2-0 Ligue 1 victory for Les Olympiens back in February.

Amiens vs Marseille Betting Odds


A win for Amiens is valued at 3.20 while Olympic Marseille are backed at odds of 2.30 to triumph. An outcome of under 2.5 goals is set at 1.73 with a draw pegged at odds of 3.10. A correct score of 1-1 is priced at odds of 6.00.

Amiens vs Marseille Match Up


Amiens have struggled in attack this season with Juan Otero still seeking his first goal of the season while John Mendoza is the team’s top scorer with just two goals to his name this term.

Marseille are depleted at the moment and are likely to miss the duo of Dimitri Payet and Florian Thauvin. Dario Benedetto should struggle on his own against the Amiens defence with the striker currently on a three-match goal drought.

Post bet analysis

Poor day for Marseille who lost 3-1 at Amiens. The tip was a low scoring draw but the hosts had other ideas.
