Ligue 1

Amiens

 

PSG entertain Amiens after firing a blank in just two of their last 52 Ligue 1 (L1) home matches (W46, D4, L2). Within that sequence, PSG’s last eight L1 home wins have yielded a cleansheet. With PSG scoring an average of 2.5 goals per-L1 home game this campaign, another easy victory seems assured.
The hosts have won a majority (five) of their last eight individual halves of L1 football at Parc Des Princes by an even-numbered margin of goals. They have won four of those halves specifically by a 2-0 scoreline, helping them beat a handicap of -2.5 in five of their last eight L1 home wins.
In total contrast to their hosts, Amiens have taken just one point from the last 15 available (D1, L4), with all of the defeats each seeing them concede 3+ goals by full-time and lose the second half by a margin of 2+ goals.
Additionally, (and evenly distributed, across consecutive second halves on the road) Amiens’ last six conceded away goals have arrived in the 61st-75th minute period. This lends potential relevance to the fact that they lost the second half of their last visit here by a three-goal margin.

Players to watch: Kylian Mbappé has averaged 1.0 goals in the middle third of play (31st-60th minute) per-match across PSG’s last three L1 home wins.
Amiens’ Stiven Mendoza gave his side a half-time lead in midweek (League Cup). His last three away goals for Amiens have come during draws.
Stat attack: PSG’s last five home league wins to see them lead ‘to-nil’ at-half-time have all yielded a cleansheet thereafter.
Across all venues, two-thirds (six) of PSG’s last nine league goals have come beyond the hour mark.
Amiens have lost all four prior halves played at PSG to-nil.
