The formbook shows that title holders PSG are set to increase their lead at the top of the Ligue 1 (L1) table, and are looking to make it a ‘perfect ten’ of league victories to start 2018/19. They come up against a Amiens side that are yet to register their first away win of the league season.
PSG are currently on their best-ever start to a L1 campaign, winning their first nine fixtures! The home side have the best attack in L1 (32 goals), scoring at least thrice in each of their last nine L1 clashes, averaging 3.5 goals per game.

The fact that Amiens come into this after victory prior to the international break is of little consequence, as they are the worst performing L1 side on the road, with just one point won from a possible 16 (D1, L3). Additionally, they have the worst away offensive record in the league with only one goal from their travels this term.
PSG’s record against them is outstanding, with the current French champions winning three of four previous meetings in all competitions (W3, D1), and scoring more than three times as many as they have conceded (GF 7, GA 2).
Players to watch: PSG striker Edinson Cavani has scored one goal in each of his last two L1 encounters against Amiens – both were scored in the first-half.
Meanwhile, Amiens will look to midfielder Saman Ghoddos for inspiration. The Iranian has scored three L1 goals and provided two assists so far.
Stat attack: PSG have converted 52% of their shots on target (61) into goals (32).
Amiens have the second-lowest amount of shots on target on the road (eight).
PSG have been leading at half-time in each of their last two L1 clashes against Amiens.
