Their latest results really do illustrate the point that much respect should be given to the Amiens SC defence. Amiens have been stingy, with the number of goals that have flown into the back of their net over the course of their past 6 matches standing at 4. Previous results aside, we will just have to wait and see whether that pattern will be maintained here in this match.

Team News: Amiens
Availability isn’t a big problem, with just the lone fitness concern for the Amiens gaffer Oswald Tanchot to contend with from an otherwise complete group. Prince Gouano (Virus Infection) is out of contention.
Team News: Clermont Foot
From a largely full-strength group, there is only the lone fitness issue for the Clermont Foot boss Pascal Gastien to be concerned with. Jérôme Phojo (Mononucleosis) won’t be in action.
We are of the inclination to think that Clermont Foot and Amiens are both capable of scoring here.
A draw looks like a realistic possibility, but we’ll see what happens. That is why we are leaning toward a 1-1 score when the referee blows the full-time whistle.
