- have left without a victory over Amiens SC when they've played them away from home in the last 6 league games. Not good at all.

Team News: Amiens
It doesn’t get much better regarding selection, with just the lone fitness concern for the Amiens boss Philippe Hinschberger to be concerned about thanks to an almost full-strength set of players. Nicholas Opoku (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t play.
Team News: AC Ajaccio
Due to a completely injury-free group to choose from, the AC Ajaccio manager Olivier Pantaloni has zero fitness worries at all ahead of this game.
We believe that Amiens SC will need to push hard to hit the back of the net against this AC Ajaccio side who we think should do enough to score at the other end and edge ahead.
We’re therefore seeing a 0-1 winning score for AC Ajaccio at the end of the 90.
Expecting it to be tight.
