Dijon vs Lille
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 12th January 2020
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade Gaston Gerard.
Dijon come into this game in 16th place but are just 1 point in front of the bottom three. They have drawn their last two games with their last match finishing 2-2 against Metz.
13 of Dijon’s total of 16 points have come at home and if they are to stay up it will be on how they perform at Stade Gaston Gerard. The good news is that the club are unbeaten in their last 5 games here. They have earned 11 points from their last 15 available. If Dijon win they cannot move up any places but could give more distance to them and 18th place.
Lille would go 3rd with a win and come here just two points behind Rennes. Form had been brilliant with 4 wins in a row but that came to a shuddering halt when they were slaughtered 5-1 by a rampant Monaco in their last game. Have they been able to recover?
The problem Lille has is away form, whilst they are in 4th place in Ligue 1 if we only counted their away stats they would be in 17th place and they have lost 65% of their games on the road winning just once.
Dijon vs Lille: Head to Head
- Lille has won the last 4 meetings between the teams.
- Last season this fixture ended 2-1 to Lille.
- There is a 65% chance to see under 2.5 goals.
Dijon vs Lille: Prediction
The odds on the home win with a double chance are decent and we will take this even if Lille do have the much superior team. Lille simply cannot be trusted on the road and the double chance will be able to cover us if there is a draw.
For Dijon Mounir Chouiar has scored a few goals at home and we will back him to score again at the weekend. Make this one minimum stakes but he is great value to get on the score sheet and we think there could be a goal or two in Dijon at the weekend.
Dijon vs Lille: Bet Tips:
Double Chance: Dijon win or draw at 1.83
Anytime goalscorer: Mounir Chouiar (Dijon) at 5.00 (4/1).
