Dijon vs Monaco
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 20th December 2020
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade Gaston Gerard (Dijon).
Dijon are bottom of the league and have slipped 4 points from safety and there will be concern at the club after 15 games played.
Last weekend they lost 2-0 at home to Lille but given that Lille are top of the league that felt expected. The problem for Dijon is now they are facing more quality in Monaco.
Before the Lille have Dijon had picked up form winning one and drawing two games but the club have only scored 9 goals this season.
Monaco come here on the back of bad form having lost their last 3 matches in a row. This has put the club down to 8th place and they have fallen 9 points behind the leaders Lille.
Away from home Monaco have one of the worst records in the league and have lost 5 from their seven played so far. These defeats have been against quality opposition though and they should fancy their chances against Dijon.
Dijon vs Monaco: Head to Head
- Last season this fixture ended 1-1.
- Monaco haven’t won at Dijon since 2017.
- The last 3 meetings has ended in under 2.5 goals.
Dijon vs Monaco: Prediction
One senses more dropped points here for Monaco and they will start to lose pace with the top teams, so a win is really needed.
But Monaco have really struggled on the road and they will be odds on to win this and we have to wonder if a club loses 75% of their away games where is the value in backing them?
Still Monaco have a much better team than Dijon of course but Dijon had picked up on form lately take out the Lille game and we are tempted to back the home side on the handicap.
