Dijon vs Nimes
Coupe de France
Date: Sunday 19th January 2020
Kick off at 16:15 UK/ 17:15 CET
Venue: Stade Gaston Gerard (Dijon)
We have an all Ligue 1 clash on Sunday when Dijon will take on Nimes in the Coupe de France last 32.
Dijon beat Ligue 2 side Valenciennes 2-1 in the last round. The club has struggled this season and in Ligue 1 they are in 16th place. They have pulled 3 points clear of the bottom three though. They pulled off a great result last weekend in beating Lille and have in fact gone their last 3 games without defeat.
Nimes rested some key players in the last round as they took on Tours FC who are in the 5th tier of French football. The game ended 2-2 after extra time and Nimes needed penalties in the end to save them in a quite thrilling game.
In the league they could be heading for Ligue 2 as they are 5 points from safety and in 19th place. They have lost 4 of their last five games.
Dijon vs Nimes: Head to Head
The last time the teams met here was last September when the game finished 0-0.
Dijon have not beaten Nimes at home since 2014.
There is a 70% chance to see both teams to score.
Dijon vs Nimes: Prediction
With both teams locked in battles to stay in Ligue 1 you could think that the last thing the teams need is another game which isn’t a league match. What can the winners really get of this, as better teams will await them in the next round. Dijon will probably play a much stronger side as Nimes really have to concentrate on the league and we wouldn’t be surprised if they do not play a full strength side, then there is the fact of travelling and it is quite a distance for the club to go. We are backing the home win to come through.
