Lille vs Dijon
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 30th November 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Pierre-Mauroy (Lille).
Pressure is on Lille coach Christophe Galtier to keep his job after the club have slipped to 10th and were also knocked out of the Champions League at the group stage in midweek.
To be fair it has been difficult for the coach who has saw a few of his best players sold in the summer and even though they are in 10th place they are just one win from the top 4. But Galtier’s name has also been linked to a move away possibly the Premier League, so we will have to see how that works out.
Lille’s latest defeat was somewhat understandable as they loss against PSG in Paris by 2-0. But it also means they have no wins in their last 3 games. The club will be happy to return home though as they remain strong here and are undefeated this season. Though their last home game ended 0-0 against Metz.
Dijon as usual are dancing with the relegation zone and are in 17th place. They remain an enigma because some weeks they play like a top half side. The club beat Rennes 2-1 at home last weekend and a win here would be massive for them.
Away from home Dijon have one of the worse records in the league where they have won just 4 points from a possible 21. They have lost two games in a row against Brest and Monaco coming into this game.
Lille vs Dijon: Head to Head
- Last season this fixture ended 1-0 to Lille.
- Over the past 15 years the teams have only met 8 times and Dijon have never won at Lille.
- There is a 70% chance to see under 2.5 goals.
Lille vs Dijon: Prediction
We expect Lille to win this match but at the same time they are as low as 1.50 (1/2) which is a bit on the short side. Though if you are doing an accumulator this could be a great add.
Instead we will take a little more risk and hope that Lille start strong, they do usually at home and we will be taking them on to be leading the game at half time.
For much better value at low stakes we will look into the final correct score also. This should be a game that Lille dominate but don’t expect Dijon to just roll over and the home side will have to work hard for this victory.
Lille vs Dijon: Bet Tips:
Half Time: Lille to be winning at 2.10 (11/10)
Correct Score: Lille to win 1-0 or 2-0 at 6.00 (5/1) and 6.50 (11/2).
