Lille vs Amiens Free Betting Tips and Odds
Last weekend, Lille was in the Coupe de France with the lower-class club US Raon-l’Etape. Les Dogues had a tough time here, but the bottom line was that Galtier’s team narrowly prevailed. In the French league, Lille was doing excellently in the first half of the season and is in fourth place in the table before the start of the second half of the season.
Amiens put in a strong performance against Stade Rennes in the Coupe de France last weekend, but unfortunately had to give up on penalties and is therefore only represented in the Coupe de la Ligue. There the team of coach Elsner prevailed shortly before Christmas against Rennes.
Lille – statistics & current form
Lille would almost have moved up to the second French league at the end of the 2017/2018 season, but has developed sensationally in the recent past. At the end of last season, the mastiffs actually took second place behind Paris, so that this time the club even started in the Champions League.
In this competition, Lille could not keep up against opponents such as Valencia, Ajax and Chelsea and was relegated to the bottom of the table in Group H. At the national level, however, things are going really well again in 2019/20.
Only the end of the first half of the season was a disappointment from Lille’s point of view, as AS Monaco had to admit defeat with 1: 5. Things went really well for the mastiffs in the league and the team celebrated four victories in a row. The clear packing at Monaco was also surprising because Lille celebrated a smooth 3-0 away win in the Principality as part of the Coupe de la Ligue a few days earlier.
Lille had to run in the Coupe de France at the weekend and had significantly more problems than expected when playing against the underclass US Raon-l’Etape.
“We take the cup very seriously and want to go one round against Amiens.”
Coach Galtier’s team was clearly 3-0 ahead after just over an hour with goals from Araujo, Fonte and Remy. Then Lille switched down a few gears and conceded two goals.
So it should not only be clear to the coach that the team has to increase enormously if it should work in the Coupe de la Ligue to reach the semi-finals.
Probable lineup of Lille:
➦ Maignan; Bradaric, Gabriel, Fonte, Celik; Soumare, Andre; Bamba, Ikone, Sanches; Osimhen

Amiens – statistics & current form
Amiens ended up at the 15th place in Ligue 1 at the end of last season and barely held its own in the top French division. It didn’t go any better in the first half of the current season, so the unicorns are currently only in 18th place in the table.
After all, Amiens is tied with the seventeenth in the table, but the team of coach Luka Elsner has to put a lot of effort into the second half if you want to prevent relegation once more. In the French league, Amiens only had four wins and five draws, while nine of them were losers.
“Despite a good performance, we left the Coupe de France. But my team gave everything and will now try to advance in the other cup competition. ”
What is striking about Amiens is that you not only have one of the weakest offensives, but also that the defensive is one of the weakest in Ligue 1. In December, Amiens had a total of three games in the league and only one home game against Dijon was enough to draw.
At the end of the year, the unicorns still had to compete at PSG, where there was little chance and a clear 4: 1 defeat. Things went better a few days earlier in the Coupe de la Ligue, where Amiens beat Stade Rennes 3-2 in the round of 16. In this game, Amiens was not disturbed by a deficit and made it into the quarter-finals of this cup competition with goals from Zungu, Mendoza and Monconduit. At Lille – Amiens, the odds do not suggest a sustained cup run.
Things weren’t going so well for Amiens in the Coupe de France, where they beat Rennes on penalties last weekend. The sick guano will be missing from Amiens on Wednesday and there are still question marks among the stricken Jallet and Bodmer.
Probable lineups of Amiens:
➦ Dreyer; Calabresi, Dibassy, Lefort, Aleesami; Bumbu, Blin, Monconduit; Cornette, Guirassy, Talal
