Lorient haven’t played a game for the past two weeks due to the pandemic and they have fallen to last place in the league and have 12 points.
Victory for Lorient could see them go to 19th place but there would be a lot of pressure on the club if they lose this crucial match because they would be six points from safety.

Dijon were used to being bottom of the league for some time but are now in 18th place, although with 15 points they have a lot of work to do and are still in trouble.
But form has been good for the club and they are unbeaten in their last 4 games in a row. They have drawn their last 3, with their latest result ending in a 1-1 draw at home to Strasbourg.

Lorient vs Dijon: Prediction
Dijon have got the better results against Lorient in the limited games that the clubs have played. Dijon are also in the better form.
Some could point to the fact that Lorient have not played for two weeks and that the players will be well rested. But this can also be a disadvantage because players can get rusty and slightly unfit.
Dijon come better prepared and have been a tough team to beat, so whilst this could be a close game we will be backing the away side to get the win.
