Nantes vs Dijon
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 8th December 2019
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade La Beaujoire (Nantes)
Nantes are in 10th place coming into this game and their last match ended in a 2-0 loss to champions PSG. The club have been in poor form but before the PSG game they went on a 2 game unbeaten run and seemed to have turned a corner. The PSG defeat shouldn’t affect the club too much and losing away from home 2-0 to them isn’t the worst result.
Nantes are just 3 points behind 4th and a win here could take them up 3 or 4 places. The club have won 5 from their 8 home games and have conceded just 5 goals here, though they have only scored 8 goals in front of their home fans.
Dijon are in 16th and they drew their last game at home to Montpellier with it finishing 2-2. The club are picking up points but not really finding the right consistency and keep floating around the bottom 5 and four places. Away from home they have won just once and have lost 6 games that includes losing their last 3 matches in a row. A win here could see the club only move one place up but it would still be a big result for them to win here away to Nantes.
Nantes vs Dijon: Head to Head
- Last season Nantes won this game 3-0.
- Dijon have not won at Nantes since 2010.
- There is a 70% chance to see under 2.5 goals.
Nantes vs Dijon: Prediction
We are going to back Nantes to win this game. They were on a good little run before the PSG game and we think they can return to winning ways, plus being at home and the fact that Dijon do not have a good record here.
So together with a home win we will also pick Nantes striker Kalifa Coulibaly. He is a due a goal and has just been a little unlucky lately and we think it is only a matter of time before he will score. Nantes should be able to not just win this game but also dominate, and we expect a solid and professional win here.
