Nice have a chance to clinch their third successive win in the competition for the French Championship in order to reach their sixth straight game without losing in the competition. In the last round, the team played a very balanced game against Lille, and even having opened the scoring, yielded the tie in the second stage, starting a point away from home. Although it has shown some improvement in the last rounds, the team has been lacking in defensive terms this season, so much so that it has one of the eight most defensive defenses of the competition. Playing in their domains, the club has won just over 50% of the points, and in this condition has one of the four worst defenses. The coach has been stirring frequently in the team’s tactical system, but should keep Seri as a midfield reference.

In his league games as a visitor, the most frequent result at half-time was 0-0 (4 out of 10 matches). The team conceded goals in 8 of the last 10 games, so it has not shown great defensive solidity, but its attack has marked regularly, since it managed to materialize in 7 of the last 10 games in this competition. In their away games there is a tendency towards few goals, since 9 of their last 10 matches in the competition finished with Less than 2.5 goals. In 19 games in this competition, suffered the first goal 10 times and never managed to turn the score.
Amiens knows they urgently need a positive result not to see their situation worsen even more in the French Championship as they come from four consecutive defeats, a period in which they scored just one goal, thus highlighting problems in the offensive sector. In their last clash, the team played a balanced game against Nantes, but left out in offensive terms, and ended up suffering the defeat goal in the second half. Looking at the numbers of the competition, we can see that the team has been characterized by a very inefficient offensive sector, which is now the third worst of all, being the least complete. Another weak point of the club has been the exchange of passes, which has the second worst average of hits. The 4-2-3-1 or 4-4-1-1 should be the formation used for this duel by coach Pélissier, who must keep Kakuta in the eleven starts.
