In their last clash, the team had only 32% possession and finished only five times, but came to open 0x2 against Monaco, suffering the upset in the second half. As was evident in this last round, the defensive system has been acting in a somewhat inconsistent way, so much so that it is now among the top nine in the competition. His attack is the one that ends the least, and the team has the worst average possession of the championship ball. The coach is still testing various tactical formations, but must keep Khaoui in the starting eleven.

Amiens went undefeated for seven rounds in the French Championship, having won three straight victories but failed to keep up the pace and has now come from two straight defeats, scoring just one goal in that period. The last of them came at home against Lyon in a game where they had a good performance, but ended up yielding to the pressure of the adversary, suffering the goal of defeat already in the additions of the final stage. The numbers of the competition indicate that the team has been characterized by a not very efficient offensive sector, that now figures among the seven worst. At least the defense has been compensating for the lack of goals with a good performance, being among the eight less leaked. In addition to being the second that finishes less, the club also leaves to be desired in the exchange of passes and in possession of ball, in which it has the third worst average. The coach is likely to set up the team at 4-2-3-1 or 4-4-1-1, with Dibassy at the defensive end.
