Venue: Stade Gaston Gerard (Dijon).

In midweek Dijon lost 2-0 to Nimes in a big match for the clubs down there and it seems that every time Dijon has the chance to put a big breathing space between them and 18th they get beat. The gap to the bottom three is just 3 points and all of the clubs good recent efforts suddenly look in vain and they must try and win this match.

Dijon have now lost 2 matches from their last 3 but at home there is hope for the club who have gone their last five matches undefeated. Their last result here ended in a 3-0 win over Brest.

Nantes are in 11th place and form is not good having lost their last 3 matches in a row. Their latest loss was against PSG though and it only ended 2-1. But they have also lost recent games against Bordeaux and Rennes and have just 1 win from their last five games.

On the road Nantes have lost 6 from 11 games but have won 2 from their last four. A win could see the club jump into the top 7 depending on other results.

Dijon vs Nantes: Prediction

This could be a close game but we are going to opt to see the home side win.

Dijon had a setback in midweek but they look like a different club at home and not only are Nantes in poor form but they also do not get good results at this stadium.

We also like the look of Julio Tavares to score in this one. Once a striker he just plays behind them now but he has a good history of scoring against Nantes and could well be worth putting on and is good value.

Dijon vs Nantes: Bet Tips:

  • Dijon to beat Nantes at 2.50 (6/4)
  • Anytime goalscorer: Julio Tavares (Dijon) at 4.00 (3/1)
