Lille vs Dijon
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 12th May 2018
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Pierre-Mauroy (Lille).
Lille have given themselves a huge chance of survival after winning their last two games which took them out of the bottom three and into 16th place. Wins against Metz and Toulouse two clubs who were around them has been significant but there is still hard work to do.
Lille will be happy that they are also scoring goals with 6 converted in their last two games. In fact the club has scored 20% of their total season goals in those two matches. This match against Dijon is huge and is a cup final because if they win this they will confirm their safety in Ligue 1.
Dijon are 12th and have 45 points and have little motivation for the win coming into this game. But they earned respect last weekend by beating in form Guingamp 3-1 though they were at home. Away from home the club have been very poor with just 2 wins all season. Dijon have conceded 43 goals away from home which is the most in the league and Lille will be hoping to take advantage of that poor record defensively
