Ligue 1 / SC Amiens vs Olympique Lyon – Lyon played better in first rounds but they too didn’t justify expectations. Amiens won one and lost three matches, while Lyon started with two sound victories after which they lost and draw, so they have four points more than their hosts. The two teams met last year twice in the league and twice in two Cups and Lyon won each time.
Game SC Amiens vs Olympique Lyon begins 13.09.2019 at 20:45 CET
All well that Amiens made in the championship so far it has achieved against the strongest rival they have faced. In the second round they met vice-champion Lille and defeated them by 1-0. Before that they lost in Nice 2-1 and after that Nantes defeated them at home by the same result. They played their weakest in Toulouse in the previous last round when they didn’t score for the first time and the match ended as defeat of 2-0. It should be said that they played against Nantes with a player less for most of match since Dibassi was sent off and who didn’t play in the previous round. There were other changes in the team as well, and we expect new ones now.
Probable lineups SC Amiens: Gurtner – Jallet, Calabresi, Lefort, Blin, Aleesami – Gnahore, Zungu – Kakuta, Akolo – Guirassy
Lyon had a furious start of the season; they first defeated Monaco 3-0 away, while in the second round they outclassed Angers in front of their fans by 6-0. It was a sign that they may even be able to pary the untouchable PSG this season but after that came two weak matches. They were defeated by Montpellier away and then merely drew with Bordeaux at home. In both those matches of their players was sent off at the beginning of the second half. That's why Kone and Mendes cannot play now, meaning Tousart, Traore and Dembele are back in the starting line-up.
Probable lineups Olympique Lyon: Lopes – Tete, Andersen, Denayer, Dubois – Reine-Adelaide, Tousart, Aouar – Traore, Depay, Dembele
Betting Pick: SC Amiens vs Olympique Lyon
Lyon has won just one point in two previous matches but their players were sent off and now they should prevent such behaviour. In they succeed in disciplining their players they will be closer to victory than Amiens, which modestly started the season and is not exactly able to parry Lyon.
Pick: Lyon wins
Odds: 1.76 at betsson (down to 1.66 can be played)
