Angers vs Dijon
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 10th September
Kick Off: 19:00 BST
Venue: Stade Jean-Bouin (Angers).
Last season was a brilliant surprise for Angers who kept consistent for so many months in the top five. But this one feels like the honeymoon period has ended, and maybe it’s bad enough for divorce. Three matches and 3 losses have left Angers in 18th place and the only reason they are not bottom is because Lorient and Nancy have a worse goal difference. To concede 4 goals in three games is not the worst record but what is a major worry is that Angers have not scored yet.
Dijon got off to a terrible start too but everything changed when they played Lyon and beat them 4-2, no one really expected such a win and such a result. But then came the break, this did not play into Dijon’s hands, who would have wanted to have played the next day such would have been the momentum.
Angers vs Dijon: Head to Head
This fixture is the first that the two clubs have ever played in Ligue 1. However they have met many times in Ligue 2. The last time they played we saw a 1-1 draw at Dijon in 2015. At Angers and this is a big stat- Dijon has never won. However the bulk of those results have been draws and so only the handicap on Angers would have given us a 100% success rate. The last three fixtures have all seen fewer than 3 goals.
Angers vs Dijon: Prediction
Both team’s need something from this game and despite Dijon’s great victory over Lyon it was just one match and the reality is that both clubs have had poor starts to the league. Angers and Dijon would be happy to share a point.
