Dijon vs Reims
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 9th March 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Gaston Gerard (Dijon).
Dijon will know that after playing Reims they will have to play PSG and so looking ahead they will try everything to get all 3 points in this game.
The home side are in 19th place and look odds on to be relegated this season. They are currently 5 points from safety but if they lose this match and Amiens and Monaco win that gap would go to 8 points and surely there would be no way back for the side.
This will be a tough game for them and form is very poor with defeats in their last 5 games in a row. Last weekend they lost to Lille but that score was only 1-0. At home this season they have won just 3 games and lost their last two on a spin.
Reims got an average result last weekend by drawing 2-2 at home to lowly Amiens. The only good news for the club was that they were heading for a defeat and scored the equaliser in the final minutes.
The club have had an excellent second half to the season and sit in 6th place and a win could move them either one or two places and possibly into a European place for the club which would be a dream considering they have been playing Ligue 2 football in recent seasons.
Reims are unbeaten away from home in their last 5 games which goes back to the beginning of December however 3 of those matches ended in draws.
Dijon vs Reims: Head to Head

Dijon vs Reims: Prediction
Reims are clearly the better team but have struggled at this ground and we think that they can struggle again. Dijon have been poor but the odds on them on the handicap may be worth our time and a selection should be made for this.
Reims always seem to get into a good position and then drop points and that is something we may just witness again at the weekend in a game which could be quite eventful.
