Dijon vs Strasbourg
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 5th October 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Gaston Gerard.
Nobody expected Dijon to win last weekend but that is what they did. They beat Reims in Reims winning 2-1 after Reims had just travelled to Paris and beat PSG- football can remain very unpredictable and that was a great example.
Despite the win Dijon remain bottom of the league but surely they have given themselves and the fans some hope for the rest of the season, or was this just a one off good performance?
If truth be told the good news is it seems that the club are improving as they have lost just one game from their past 4 coming into this one. Their last league game at home ended in a respectable score too as they drew 0-0 with Marseille. Dijon need another win quick as they are 3 points from 19th place.
Strasbourg are in 13th place but just 4 points clear of their opponents. Form has been erratic, and they are not able to pin down the consistency that they need with 2 wins and 2 losses in their last four games.
They beat Montpellier 1-0 last weekend and away from home the club have the worst record in Ligue 1 with two defeats and one draw, though the losses were against quality teams in PSG and Lille.
Dijon vs Strasbourg: Head to Head

Dijon vs Strasbourg: Prediction
Dijon are a great price to win this game and we need to take on board their form which has been decent and their massive win last weekend plus they like playing Strasbourg, with that said we are going to back the home side to get the win. We will also choose talented player Julio Tavares to score, he did so against Reims and returning home there is no reason to think he can’t get on the score sheet again.
