France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 9th January 2021
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Gaston Gerard.

If anything we can see that Dijon are fighting to stay in Ligue 1. The club are in 18th place now after they drew 0-0 away to Reims in midweek.

This latest result means that Dijon have gone their last 2 games unbeaten and have earned 5 points from their last 15. It isn’t the best return but for their standard there has been an improvement in the last month.

Dijon are still 3 points from safety so have a lot of work to do and at home they have not won yet with 4 draws and 5 defeats.

Marseille got a welcome win in midweek as they beat Montpellier at home 3-1. The game looked like it was heading for 1-1 but late goals from Valerie Germain and Dimitri Payet won the match.

It was a good and important victory from Marseille because it ended a 3 game streak of no victories. The club are now in 5th place and 8 points behind league leaders Lyon.

Andre Villas Boas team have a decent record away from home winning 5 of their 8 games so far. However they have lost their last 2 in a row against Angers and Rennes respectively.

Dijon vs Marseille Prediction

Marseille have a good record at Dijon and overall Dijon have been poor. It was good that Marseille won a few days ago as it should give the players a spring in their step for this away game.

Marseille are odds on but a decent price of around 1.80 to win, but one would expect them to be around 1.62 for this game. The reason is that they can’t always be trusted to get the job done away to bottom three teams. They can make a task of it.

The value then looks to be with Dijon on the double chance which covers us for the draw. Dijon have found some fight and passion and they will be 100% focused on getting something from this game.
