Dijon vs Metz: Prediction
This should be an intriguing game and a very hard one to predict. Dijon surprised everyone by how they overcame Lyon. Metz is a better team and in better form than Dijon but the hosts knows their visitors well. It is better therefore to steer clear of the winning outcome and look to other markets for profits.
