Montpellier vs Dijon
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 11th August 2018
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Mosson (Montpellier).
Montpellier have spent less than 5m euros this summer but sold over 20m which has frustrated the fans. The best player coming into the squad is Andy Delort from Toulouse who can score a few goals but they were not able to sign him and the player comes as a loan deal.
Montpellier have a good record of winning their opening games in Ligue 1 when playing at home and they will be looking to follow that tradition.
Dijon have spent just over 12m euros bringing in 12 players, so one could think this is good value. Especially as the average age of the players is 23 years old. They were able to get veteran player Yohann Gourcuff on a free transfer from Rennes.
The bookmakers have made Montpellier the odds on favourites to win this game and Dijon the clear outsiders who can be backed as much as 5.00 to win this game.
Montpellier vs Dijon: Head to Head
- Last season this fixture ended 2-2.

Montpellier vs Dijon: Prediction
Montpellier are the better team and they should be able to win this game. But our main bet and for maximum stakes has to be to see both teams to score. This stat is just too good for us to turn down.
We will also back the home side to be winning at half time and full time as we can get better value on their price for this. The home side just have too many attacking options for Dijon who may feel overwhelmed as the game goes on.
