Dijon vs Brest
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 13th September 2020
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade Gaston Gerard.
Dijon have started on the wrong foot and are in 19th place having lost both of their opening games. They lost to Angers at home in their first game and then took the lead against Lyon away which was a shock but only to collapse by 4-1.
It is early in the season but you get the sense that it could be a long one for the club who have conceded 5 goals already and are struggling. They need a confidence boost here and a win at home.
The only interesting factor between the teams is that Brest are bottom of the league after also losing their first two games of the season. They are bottom simply through conceding more goals, 7 in their first two games. They opened with a 4-0 thrashing at Nimes and followed that up by losing a close game against Marseille at home going down 3-2.
Brest are a team suited to playing at home and this being away could be a struggle for the club to get anything here.

Dijon vs Brest Prediction
Brest do not travel well here and we think Dijon can ease to victory and get all three points. It is worth also backing Mama Balde who is good value to score in this game after his brace the last time the clubs met.
Do not expect a good game of football with few attacks and the midfield mostly making the difference. It has been a poor start for both sides but being at home we expect Dijon to edge this.
Dijon to beat Brest at 2.50 (6/4)
Anytime goalscorer: Mama Balde (Dijon) at 3.25 (9/4).
