Montpellier vs Dijon
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 25th January 2020
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Mosson.

Montpellier and Dijon have something in common and it happened in midweek when the teams both won their respective games in the Coupe de France 5-0 to reach the last 16.

Montpellier come into this game in 6th place and a win could see the club move into the top 5. Form is decent as they have won their last 2 games in a row and then the cup win of 5-0 which happened at home will only boost their confidence.

Dijon did very well in the cup, but they are in 16th place. The good news is that they have only lost 1 game in their past five and their last match ended in a 1-0 win over Lille and the club have gone their last 3 games unbeaten.

Montpellier vs Dijon: Head to Head

  • Last season Dijon won this fixture 2-1.
  • The last 10 meetings have all seen both teams to score.
  • Because of a succession of draws Montpellier have not beaten Dijon when at home since 2011.
  • 5 of the last 8 meetings home or away have ended in draws.

Montpellier vs Dijon: Prediction

Montpellier will start as favourites for this game but we’re not sure this can be justified as they genuinely find it a struggle to beat Dijon, even if this season they have a better team than them.

Dijon’s away form though is poor and they have lost 70% of their games. One of our main choices has to be to see both teams to score as that record has a fantastic return.

Andy Delort is in fine form for the home side, scoring two goals in midweek and get on the forward if he starts this game, he is always a danger in front of goal and could be hitting his stride.

Montpellier vs Dijon: Bet Tips

  • Both teams to score at 2.10
  • Anytime goalscorer: Andy Delort (Montpellier) at 2.50 (6/4).
