Dijon vs Toulouse
French Ligue 1
Date: Friday, 24 May 2019
Kick-Off 20:05 UK / 21:05 CET
Venue: Stade Gaston-Gerard (Dijon).
Dijon were doomed to an uphill battle at the weekend when they did little to hurt champions PSG away in the capital.
They suffered a 4-0 disaster, their third loss in last four league ties. Such run will likely cost them heavily as the team has slip hopes of avoiding the drop to the second division football coming into the last round fixture against Toulouse on Friday.
Antoine Kombouare’s men are two points shy of Caen and need a win here as well as Bordeaux’s upset at Stade Michel d’Ornano to move into the safe zone.
Beating out-of-form and non-motivated Toulouse will no doubts be much easier of a task for the hosts, but it is really hard to see Bordeaux ending their six-loss thread away at Caen at the same time.
Dijon vs Toulouse: Head-to-head
The head to head statistics is all tied at three wins, draws and losses as teams head into their landmark 10th meeting.
Sides shared spoils in an interesting 2-2 draw when they met each other this season in early-December.
Interestingly, Dijon won three and drew three of past six clashes with Les Pitchouns.
Dijon vs Toulouse: Prediction
Much like their rivals, Toulouse suffered a genuine catastrophe last weekend when they fell 2-5 at home to Olympique Marseille.
Nonetheless, they fancied other results on the second-to-last Matchday as the team led by Alain Casanova managed to secure another top flight campaign heading into the last round with a five-point advantage on Caen in 18th place.
Les Pitchouns lost three and drew three of past six league matches. They have nothing to play for here and we have reasons to see them as clear underdogs against highly-motivated Dijon who are hoping for a last round miracle.
On top of this, Les Mustards dominated this match-up lately as they won two and drew one of last three H2H ties with Toulouse.
Since Dijon kept only one clean sheet in last 16 matches across competitions, we will alternatively back the Home win & Both Teams To Score bet at the odds of 3.20.
