Dijon vs Nantes
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 18 August 2018
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK / 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Gaston-Gerard, Dijon.
Dijon enjoyed a thrilling start to the new season upsetting Montpellier seven days ago 1-2 away at Stade de la Mosson.
They will be looking to back up such fine attacking display and pick up a new three-pointer on Saturday evening when Nantes come to visit Stade Gaston-Gerard.
The Canaries conceded only 17 goals in 19 home games in the previous term of Ligue 1 under Claudio Ranieri, but they began the 2018/19 campaign by shipping three to Monaco last weekend.
Nantes thus continued to be easy to break down after allowing two goals in a defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion in the final check before the start of the season.
Dijon vs Nantes: Head-to-head
- Nantes lead the head to head tie by three wins coming into the 14th meetings with the Mustards.
- Dijon, however, claimed four points from last term outings against the Canaries.
- The Mustards won the previous home game against Nantes 1-0 back in October last year.
- Only one of last four H2H matches saw three or more goals scored.
Dijon vs Nantes: Prediction
Dijon did a fantastic job in the summer transfer window and the head coach Olivier Dall’Oglio has a very interesting line-up of attackers in his ranks.
The likes of Julio Tavares, Wesley Said and Naim Sliti are well capable of causing troubles to any opponent in the league (except for PSG) and they should have plenty of room to create here knowing that the Canaries allowed three goals to Monaco last weekend.
Tavares, who bagged 12 goals last season, has already managed to find the back of the net in a 1.2 wins over Montpellier, while Naim Sliti set up the second goal which came from Senou Coulibaly.
Knowing about Nantes’ defensive woes under the new manager Miguel Cardoso, we have to try with Dijon to bag two or more goals in front of the home crowd at the 2.62 odds. The more conservative punters will be satisfied with Dijon not to lose at 1.50.
