Dijon vs Lorient
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 22nd October 2016
Kick-Off at 19:00 BST
Venue: Stade Gaston Gerard, Dijon.
The case of Dijon is an odd one because the team promoted from Ligue 2 have already had some good results, shown consistency and yet they come into this game against Lorient in 17th place with 9 points.
The home side are now 3 games unbeaten after beating Rennes and drawing with Montpellier and St Etienne. At home is where the points have been earned 8 from the total of nine. They have lost just one game at Stade Gaston Gerard which was their first match 1-0 to Nantes.
Lorient is in 19th place but could leapfrog their opponents with a win here. Their away form is poor where they are yet to win and they have only won 2 games all season.
Dijon vs Lorient: Head to Head Stats (h2h)
The clubs last played each other almost a year ago where Lorient ran out 3-0 winners in a Cup fixture, although this was at Lorient’s home ground.
We have to go back five years since they met at Dijon’s ground and the home team won 2-0. In recent history the clubs have played each other 3 times at Dijon and Lorient is yet to win, 1 defeat and 2 draws. Lorient have also failed to scored in each of the three visits.
Dijon vs Lorient: Prediction
Dijon has been excellent at home and will start as the favourites to win the game. However even though Lorient has been poor they have been at least scoring goals lately and they are only narrowly losing games. Dijon has showed that they are more motivated to play attacking football against better teams and with an opposition like Lorient this actually poses more problems tactically for the home side. Let’s play this bet safely.
