Marseille vs Dijon Prediction & Match Preview

Marseille vs Dijon
France Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 11th November 2018
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade Velodrome (Marseille).

Marseille have lost their last 2 games and that has knocked them down to 6th place and six points from 2nd position. They have had a run of tough games having to play PSG and then Montpellier. They made it 3 losses in a row on Thursday night when they lost 2-1 against Lazio in the Europa League. But they will be happy to play Dijon who have struggled at times this season, and the bookmakers are sure to make Marseille the favourites to win this fixture.

Marseille’s home form is very good with just 1 loss which came against PSG otherwise they have been very powerful at home where they have scored 15 goals so far only PSG has scored more.

Dijon were rocked bad at home against new boys Nimes and lost 4-0 which was seen as simply not good enough. The result has left the side in 17th place and they have now lost 4 of their last 5 games with one draw sandwiched in between.

But it is interesting to look at Dijon’s away record where they would be 4th in the table. Although it is not great from 6 games they have won 2, drawn 2 and lost 2. Plus they have not won away from home since the end of August.

Marseille vs Dijon: Head to Head

Marseille vs Dijon: Prediction

Marseille should win this game very comfortably and in fact we would put this down as a weekend banker. They need to find their winning style again and it is only a matter of time before they do.

Dijon still look shocked by their 4-0 smash last weekend. The problem is that Marseille are 1.30 (1/3) to win so we will take them to be winning the game at half time and also check out the goal scorers market for added value.
