Odds: 6/4 @ Bet 365

Two sides enduring a very different run of form at the back end of the season, a resurgent Amiens will host Bordeaux at the Stade de la Licorne on Sunday.

Starting with the hosts, playing out a 0-0 draw with Angers prior to the international break, Christophe Pélissier’s side extended their unbeaten run to four matches. Now holding a seven-point buffer over the relegation zone and with their confidence at a season-high, it has particularly been their form at the Stade de la Licorne really behind their resurge. Amiens have won their last three matches in front of their own fans and have conceded just a single goal in over 300 minutes of action on home soil. Looking to mount a shock push for the top half, Sunday’s hosts should be confident of extending their unbeaten tally this weekend.

As for the visitors, playing out a 1-1 draw against Rennes prior to the international break, fans around the Stade Matmut-Atlantique have been growing more concerned by Bordeaux’s form at the back end of the campaign. Now picking up just a single victory since the middle of January and unable to win any of their last six, it will undeniably be their form on the road giving Paulo Sousa the biggest headache. Sunday’s visitors are yet to pick up an away victory in 2019 and have lost six of their last seven on their travels. Given Bordeaux’s recent struggles, we’re backing a victory for the hosts on Sunday.
