Montpellier vs Dijon
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 7th February 2021
Kick off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Mosson (Montpellier).
Montpellier have earned just 2 points from their last 15 and their win less run continued in midweek when they were held 1-1 at Metz. It wasn’t a terrible away result but the club seem to have forgotten how to win and this match at the weekend could give them a perfect opportunity to rectify that.
Montpellier have slipped to 11th as a result of their recent poor form and have 29 points and at home they have been poor losing seven of their 11 games so far. Their last home game ended in a 2-1 defeat against Lens and they have no wins at home in over 2 months.
Dijon are in 19th and are 4 points from safety but on the same points as bottom placed Nimes. The club come into this match having lost their last three games in a row.
In midweek Dijon did make Lyon work hard for their win and Lyon came away with just a 1-0 win. Dijon’s problems this season have been up front and they scored just 15 goals so far that is the worst record in Ligue 1.
Montpellier vs Dijon: Head to Head
- Last season Montpellier won this fixture 2-1.
- Dijon has just 1 win at Montpellier from the last 8 attempts going back 14 years and that was in 2018 when Dijon won 2-1.
- Based on the last 10 meetings there is an incredible 100% success rate to see both teams to score.
Montpellier vs Dijon: Prediction
Just how long will Montpellier’s poor form continue for? We don’t think too much longer and they played some encouraging stuff in midweek.
Gaetan Laborde who we tipped to score for the club did so, and he looked alert the last few games for the club and we will back him to score again.
Records do end but we can’t ignore the both teams to score win rate in this fixture and that is another market we will back. Dijon are a proud team but are more likely now to pick up points at home rather away.
