Date: Friday, 22 February 2019
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 UK
Venue: Stade Gaston-Gerard (Dijon).
Dijon and Saint Etienne are going to open the action in the 26th round of French Ligue 1 on Friday evening.
The hosts are in a very poor form as they lost three times in a row and they are in a real trouble. Although they enjoyed a good start of the season, Dijon failed into a terrible form and they managed to pick up only three points from the last five rounds.
Home side is one point away from the nearest safe spot, but in order to get away from the danger, Antoine Kombouare needs to find the winning formula as soon as possible. Their home performances are very poor this season as Dijon lost six times in eleven matches played at their ground.
Saint Etienne are fighting for the top three and the place in the Champions League next season, but they need to improve their form in order to remain in the race. The visitors are six points behind Lyon and they’ve snatched only four points from the last five matches.
Wahbi Khazri and the lads are doing very well in front of the oppositions’ goal, but they need to tighten up t heir defending in the upcoming rounds.
Saint Etienne haven’t been to confident at away grounds as they managed to get back home with just two wins from 12 outings.
Dijon vs Saint Etienne: Head-to-head
Saint Etienne have been more successful in their latest head to head clashes as they failed just to one defeat in their eleven encounters played so far.
However, Dijon celebrated in their latest clash in Coupe de France in a goal galore which finished with their 6-3 win.
Their latest matches have been pretty efficient as the crowd was able to enjoy at least three goals in the last three occasions.
Dijon vs Saint Etienne: Prediction
The hosts are in a very poor momentum and the fact that they are paying at their ground, doesn’t give them the advantage, based on what we’ve seen so far. Saint Etienne are favourites in this one and they should get back home with important three points.
Although their latest head to head clashes have been pretty efficient ones, in this one we are not expecting to see too many goals. Dijon are one of the most inefficient sides in the competition, while the visitors are putting average away performances and this one should remain under 2.5 margin.
