Dijon vs Montpellier
France – Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday 4th December 2019
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Stade Gaston Gerard.
Dijon lost to Lille at the weekend although the result was close, and they only went down 1-0. But it is a result that keeps the club in 18th place and the relegation zone. They could climb at least two places though if they can get a win over Montpellier on Wednesday evening.
The biggest problem is that the club are not scoring any goals. They have only managed to score on 9 occasions this season. Although they have had an awful start to the league it is interesting that at this stadium just a few weeks ago they were able to beat PSG. But then again football can be a very unpredictable game.
But this is a stadium where Dijon are getting their best results and they are unbeaten in their last five home games and that includes winning their last 3 games in a row here. So evidently there is hope.
Montpellier are in 4th place and could put the pressure on Marseille in 2nd with a win here. The club are in decent form because they haven’t lost in their last five matches, but they are drawing too many games and that includes 3 out of those five games.
Whilst Montpellier are a top 4 side, they have a problem with playing away from home because they still haven’t won on the road. In fact, based on away form, the club would be 16th. Their last away game ended 0-0 v Saint Etienne.
Dijon vs Montpellier: Head to Head
Last season this game finished 1-1.
There is a 90% chance to see both teams to score.
Montpellier have not won at Dijon since 2008.
Dijon vs Montpellier: Prediction
One of our choices will obviously be to go with history and back both teams to score. With a 90% success rate we can’t really ignore that.
We also know that Montpellier have a dreadful record coming here and that they have been very poor on the road this season. That is why we will back the home win for Dijon.
It is a bit risky, but the club do seem to be able to raise their game against the better performing sides in the league.
We can’t put any trust in Montpellier until they start performing on the road, so even if they do have a better team than Dijon, we will be backing the home side.
Dijon vs Montpellier: Bet Tips:
Dijon to beat Montpellier at 3.25 (9/4)
Both teams to score at 2.00 (1/1).
