Metz vs Dijon: Preview and Predictions

Metz vs Dijon
Ligue 1
Date: 21st October 2017
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Saint-Symphorien (Metz).

Both Metz and Dijon have been struggling badly in Ligue 1 going into Saturday’s game at Stade Saint-Symphorien.

The match has all the ingredients of being a relegation six-pointer as the two sides sit one next to another at the very foot of the league standings after nine rounds of the competition.

Metz

The Maroons are in a tougher situation after they’ve won only a single and lost as many as eight so far.

The latest of the failures came last weekend when they could not do much to prevent a 3-1 defeat at Saint-Etienne.

It was the third loss on the bounce for Philippe Hinschsberger and his men who scored no more than four goals in nine matches.

Dijon

Luckily for Metz, they are about to meet the league’s weakest defensive line which allowed as many as 20 in opening nine outings.

However, Olivier Dall’Oglio and his side will come into the clash with the rock-bottomed Metz with an improved confidence after they held Lyon and Strasbourg to draws and after they suffered only a narrow 1-2 defeat to the star-studded lineup of PSG.

As the matter of fact, the leaders needed the 92nd-minute winner from their right-back Thomas Meunier to claim points from Stade Gaston-Gerard last Saturday.

Metz vs Dijon: Head to head

The head to head stats entirely favour Metz who have won nine of their previous 126 meetings with Dijon.

This includes a 2-1 win for The Maroons back in February this year with goals from Sarr and Diabate.

Metz vs Dijon: Prediction

Even though Metz struggled a lot to find goals so far in the season, we can see them on target against the weakest defense after they bagged one in the mentioned defeat to St. Etienne last weekend.

The visitors still remain the favourites following a series of quality performances against a string opposition in the last couple of weeks.

Metz vs Dijon: Bets

The bet that stands out is Dijon to win & BTTS at the sky-high 5.50 odds.

Punters who prefer safer options should not make a mistake backing Dijon or Draw Double Chance at the decent-value 1.53 odds.
