Dijon vs Saint-Etienne
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 6 December 2020
Kick-off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade Gaston Gérard.
These are two of the worst teams in the whole league. The Owls are placed dead last in the table, and have secured a total of just one win all through this campaign. They are also yet to record a win at home this season in the Ligue 1.
Meanwhile, the Green are one of the only two teams in the tournament to stay winless in the past five match-days. In fact, they had lost four of these fixtures, and they have also conceded goals in plenty lately.
At this point, it is clear that either team is in dire need of points, and will go to any lengths to post a rare win on the board. This Sunday, with two faltering defenses lining up on either side of the pitch, expect a goal-fest.
However, note that Claude Puel’s men have a terrific h2h record against this opponent over the years, and particularly so at this venue.
For the reasons, expect Saint-Etienne to have the upper hand this weekend.
Dijon vs Saint-Etienne: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The Green had won three of the former four overall games.
- They had also recorded eight of the former nine overall wins.
- They had scored two or more goals in five of the past seven encounters.
- At this stadium, the guests are on a winning run since 2011, and are on an unbeaten run since 2004.
- In the past ten years, the hosts have scored a total of just one goal at this ground.
Dijon vs Saint-Etienne: Prediction
David Linares’s men recorded a 1-3 win on the road the last match-day, against Nice. In the meantime, Puel’s men were held to a 1-1 draw at home by Lille.
Going on, the Owls had a total of one clean sheet in their past fourteen overall fixtures, and just two at their home in the last twelve appearances. On the other hand, their counterparts had conceded two or more goals in eight of their preceding ten match-ups, and in their previous five straight road trips.
Likely, expect goals to come in plenty this Sunday at the Stade Gaston Gérard. However, note that the Green have a phenomenal h2h record against this rival over the years. In fact, they have won every single meeting at this stadium since 2011, against this opponent.
Taking into account these observations, expect Saint-Etienne to avoid a loss at the very least this weekend.
