Dijon vs Nice
France Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 31st March 2019
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade Gaston Gerard (Dijon)
Dijon are in deep trouble in 19th place on 21 points and are 8 points from safety. While there is a chance to survive it does look difficult for them given that they have Guingamp in front of them in 18th first to get past and then the gap just looks too big for them.
Form is poor too where Dijon have won just 1 point from their last 15 and at home they have lost 8 from 15 games and have not won at home in 2 months since beating Monaco.
There is a 20 point gap between the clubs and Nice come into this game in 9th place. They are 6 points from a possible European place and whilst that remains a target the games are falling away and time is running out for the team.
The problem for Nice is that they have won just 1 game in their past five and away from home whilst they have lost 6 from 15 which isn’t the worst record they come into this game having lost 4 away games in a row.
Dijon vs Nice: Head to Head
Earlier this season Dijon beat Nice in the reverse fixture 4-0.
Last season Dijon beat Nice in this fixture 3-2.
There is a 65% chance to see over 2.5 goals.
Dijon vs Nice: Prediction
What do Dijon have to lose? They are likely to go down and this type of match could work in their favour.
The players will play for the passion of the game and if they are fired up at home they could make this game difficult for a Nice side that really need the 3 points.
This is why we can see this game having goals and being very entertaining end to end cup tie.
So our main bet will be to see over 1.5 goals in the first half for a very good value price and we can also see both teams to score, in what should be an exciting but very close match.
Dijon vs Nice: Bet Tips
First half over 1.5 goals at 3.50 (5/2)
Both teams to score at 2.00 (1/1).
