Dijon vs Brest
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 1st February 2020
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Gaston Gerard (Dijon).
Even though Dijon lost last weekend against Montpellier 2-1 they have a 3 point safety gap to the relegation zone. Although of course that could get swallowed up this weekend and the club could take strides away from danger with a win here.
Dijon though have won just once in their last five games and have collected just 5 points from their last 15. The reason they are not bottom three is because they have formed a very solid way of playing at home where they are unbeaten in their last five games and have in fact only lost 2 games here all season, that is good going for a club in 17th place.
Brest have 7 more points than Dijon and form has picked up after the club started to drop quickly down the league. But they have won their last two games in a row beating Toulouse and Amiens and they are scoring goals too, seven in fact in these games alone.
But Brest are a home team and from the 28 points they have only 8 have come away from home. They had lost 4 away games in a row before beating Toulouse, but we must remember they have been the poorest side in the league this season. Brest are conceding 2 goals per game away from home.
Dijon vs Brest: Head to Head
The teams haven’t met here since 2015 when Dijon eased to a 3-1 win.
Brest have not won at Dijon since 2009.
There is a 70% to see under 2.5 goals.
Dijon vs Brest: Prediction
Dijon should win the game based on how well they have played at home and the fact that Brest do not travel well and have a poor away record to Dijon.
But the club have come in early and put in extra training sessions and there is an upbeat mood with them after winning back to back games coming into this match which is rare for the club.
If they can start with pace and without fear we think they can pull off a surprise away victory and they will be great value as you see below.
