Nantes vs Dijon
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 5 May 2019
Kick-off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Beaujoire (Nantes).
A must win game for Dijon when they take the short trip to Nantes this weekend.
Sitting at 19th on the log, the visiting side are 4 points below the safe zone and a defeat here could prove costly in their bid to maintain Ligue 1 status.
Dijon have been performing slightly better in the last 4 weeks and they managed 2 wins and a draw before losing away at Caen last Saturday.
However, there is bad news for Antoine Kombouare as that they are up against a side in excellent form.
Nantes, once under relegation threat, superbly turned around things on the back of a brilliant home form.
Vahid Halilhodzic’s men bagged 4 wins from their last 5 games at this ground and currently come on the back of a 3 match winning streak, this include two giant scalps against Lyon and PSG.
Dijon is one of the worst away side in the division, after a humble 12 points bagged from 17 league games so far. On top of that, they had trouble scoring goals throughout the season. They managed to score just once in their last 8 away outings.
Nantes vs Dijon: Head-to-head
There is little to choose from recent h2h as the teams share 3 wins and a draw from last 7.
There are no solid streaks in terms of btts or over 2.5 goals during that period.
Meantime, Nantes dominated this home fixtures as they raked up 4 wins and 2 draws from the most recent 7 losing just once.
However, Dijon managed to score in 5 of their last 6 visits to this ground.
Nantes vs Dijon: Predictions
Nantes have been an exciting team to watch in recent weeks and they will be highly motivated to finish the season on a high. Couple this with Dijon’s woes on the road, we are certainly looking at a comfortable home win.
The hosts have seen btts in their last 4 home games. But, the same cannot be expected here since the visitors failed to score in 7 of their last 8 matches.
To sum up, I stick with one bet for this match, that is a Nantes win.
