Dijon vs Amiens
France Ligue 1
Date: Friday 12th April 2019
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Stade Gaston Gerard (Dijon).
Friday nights game will be between 18th and 17th in a match which on paper could be mouthwatering.
The reason of course is to do with relegation and survival and either team who can get a win here would be a major boost for the clubs involved. Last weekend Dijon got the result of the season in going to Lyon and beating them 3-1. It was one of the biggest shocks in Ligue 1 and the question is, can Dijon continue in this way or will they go back to being average?
One big advantage is that they will be at home. A win would keep them in 18th but at the same time they would be just 4 points adrift of Amiens and safety. A loss could condemn them and see them slip 10 points behind, so the importance of this match cannot be underestimated.
Amiens are unbeaten in their last 5 games which is good however 4 of those results have ended with draws. Their last match finished in a 2-2 draw against Saint Etienne.
Amiens have the 2nd to worst away record in the league but at the same time their recent form has improved and they come here on the back of being unbeaten in their last 2 away matches.

Dijon vs Amiens: Prediction
This will be a very close game but we will go for the home side to get all three points after their impressive win over Lyon last weekend.
At the same time our main pick for this game will be to see more goals in the 2nd half as we believe this match will start off with a lot of tension and be cagey and will be like a classic match up of chess.
But Dijon deserve our respect and if they can win we should see a very exciting finish to the Ligue 1 season.
