Dijon vs Metz
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 21st December 2019
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Stade Gaston Gerard.
Dijon earned another point at last weekend with a 1-1 draw against Amiens which has enabled them to just stay above the relegation zone. But the club need wins and they are finding that result very hard to get. They haven’t won a game in almost a month and wins really are needed as the next club up from them are 5 points clear.
If Dijon are to stay up then it will all be about their home form, and recent form here by their standards is excellent. They are unbeaten at home in the last 5 games, winning 3 in a row before Montpellier came here and the match finished in a 2-2 draw.
Metz are in 18th and this game becomes interesting because they are just 1 point behind Dijon. They have drawn 3 of their last five games and have no wins in the last month. Their last resulted ended in an impressive 1-1 draw at home to Marseille who have done so well this season.
Away from home Metz have won just one game all season. They can’t score many just 4 goals recorded on the road together with Dijon this is the worst record in the league. Their last away match ended in a 4-1 loss at Nice.
Dijon vs Metz: Head to Head
- Last season this fixture ended 1-1.
- Since 2010 Metz have only won at Dijon once.
- The last 3 meetings has seen both teams to score.
Dijon vs Metz: Prediction
Dijon have been strong at home in recent weeks and Metz don’t travel well, also Metz have a poor record at this stadium. Simply put everything points to a home win. It could be a close game and the lack of quality in both teams is apparent.
But on the face of it, this would be a surprise to see Dijon not get all three points here.
We will back the home win and also we will back Dijon’s striker Stephy Mavididi. He has found some form lately and we are surprised at the value in backing him to score anytime, so this should be taken on.
Dijon vs Metz: Bet Tips:
- Dijon to beat Metz at 2.10 (11/10)
- Anytime goalscorer: Stephy Mavididi (Dijon) at 4.00 (3/1).
