Dijon vs Marseille French Ligue 1 Predictions 31st March 2018

Dijon vs Marseille
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 31st March 2018
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade Gaston Gerard (Dijon).

Ligue 1 football returns after the international break when Dijon take on Marseille with this early evening Saturday kick off. Dijon are in 10th place on 38 points and their Ligue 1 status is very much safe. They have been on a solid unbeaten run however have found it difficult to win games as they have drawn their last 3.

With a win here they could break into the top 10 and leapfrog St Etienne. Dijon has an excellent home record where from a possible 45 points they have won 30, and they would be in 4th position based on home form only.

Marseille looked in control of their huge game against Lyon before the international break but ended up losing a thrilling game 3-2 when Lyon scored in the final minutes. It was, in the end, a terrible result for the team as they were at home. Marseille are still in 3rd position on 59 points but Lyon are now just two points behind as they look to take that final Champions League place away from them.

Marseille have a very good away record, indeed they have the 3rd best record in the league. However a loss to PSG and a draw to St Etienne recently means that they have won just 1 away game in their last 3 attempts.

Dijon vs Marseille: Head to Head

  • In the last 5 games going back to 2011 Dijon has just 1 win
  • Earlier this season in the reverse fixture Marseille won 3-0
  • 4 out of the last 5 games either home or away has ended in over 2.5 goals

Dijon vs Marseille: Prediction

Because there has been a break both teams will be finding out each other’s weaknesses in the first half and we think the goals will come mostly in the 2nd half and this will be our main bet, alongside both teams to score.
