Dijon vs Lille
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 20th October 2018
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Gaston Gerard (Dijon).
Dijon started well in the league but that has all exploded and now after defeats are down in 16th place and could be in line for a long hard relegation battle this season.
The club have lost their last 3 games in a row and are conceding goals too, 7 alone in those defeats. They have no wins since the beginning of September and even though they are at home they will be facing one of the better teams in Ligue 1 this season.
Lille have surprised many pundits and media with how well they have started and come into this game in 2nd place. Even though they are 8 points behind league leaders PSG they are also 3 points in front of 3rd place Marseille and it is clear with the fall of Monaco and Lyon so far that Lille want to take that place.
Form is good with 4 wins from their last 5 games although their away form isn’t great where they have lost 2 of their last 3 games including their last visit on the road which ended in a 1-0 loss to Bordeaux.
Dijon vs Lille: Head to Head
- Last season Dijon won 3-0 in this fixture.

- 4 of their last 6 meetings has ended in under 2.5 goals.
Dijon vs Lille: Prediction
We are going for the draw in this game. Dijon have been poor lately and need some points on the board. They have little confidence but if they can survive the first half that will grow and they should be able to get something from this game.
Lille are an excellent side at home but have not performed like a team in 2nd should when away from home and they simply cannot be trusted. They will have plenty of chances but don’t travel very well when they come to this stadium.
