France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 11th May 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Gaston Gerard (Dijon).
Dijon are in trouble in 19th and with just 3 games left they need to start picking up points. Despite losing to 18th place Caen and despite losing back to back games coming into this match they still have a chance as they are just 2 points behind Caen. Finish 18th and they will be entered into a play off with a Ligue 2 team to determine if they will be relegated. But time is running out for the club.
The good news is that they play this match at home and it is as stadium where they have not lost for 2 games including their last match here which ended in a 3-2 win over Rennes.
Strasbourg play for nothing but pride and come into this match in 10th place with 46 points. Form is poor with no wins in their last 5 games and they have drawn 4 from their last five also. The club have drawn 55% of their games away from home and have won just 4 matches on the road all season.

Dijon vs Strasbourg: Prediction
We are going to back Dijon to get the win and keep their league status interesting. They have shown some promise especially at home and Strasbourg have simply looked poor, perhaps the players are waiting for their holiday. This won’t be an easy game for Dijon but at the same time their destiny is with them at home and this is their chance to give themselves a boost with just 3 games left until the end of the season.
