Amiens vs Dijon
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 6th October 2018
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Licorne (Amiens).
Amiens are in 17th place but a win here would not just see them surpass their visitors Dijon but could see them move up by five places so a lot can change for their motivation moving forward on Saturday evening.
The home team have been in poor form losing 3 of their last 4 games and last weekend their latest defeat came at the hands of Caen in a 1-0 loss. At their home their record is better where they have won 2 and lost 2. Their two victories have come against Reims and Rennes and they have scored an impressive 9 goals at home as much as Lyon.
On form Dijon would be rock bottom of the league as they have won just 1 point from their last 15. They come into this game having lost back to back matches against Strasbourg and Lyon scored no goals in those games and shipped 6. They are low in confidence and this would be a great opportunity for Amiens to claim a win.
However Dijon are having a strange season given that 70% of their total points have come away from home and they actually have the 2nd best away record in the league. Though it should be noted that their last away win came at the end of August.
Amiens vs Dijon: Head to Head
- Last season Amiens won this fixture 2-1.
- Dijon have not won at this ground since 2006.
- The last 5 meetings have seen both teams to score.
Amiens vs Dijon: Prediction
Our bet here is for the home side to get the win. Dijon have a poor record coming here and also are in poor form, they will be wanting the international break to come and then have to rethink how they will approach this season. There will be motivation for Amiens to get the win and we will also back both teams to score in what should be an entertaining game but a very close contest.
