Nantes vs Dijon
French Ligue 1
Date: Friday, 24th February, 2017
Kick off at 18:00 UK Time
Venue: La Beaujoire, Nantes.
Nantes are going through a good period where they have lost just one game in their past four. At this stage of the season and considering how poor Nantes was at the beginning of the campaign, it seems that fans can finally relax. Nantes has gone two games unbeaten too.
However despite this upturn in fortune the Canaries are just three points and a loss away from the bottom three. But there is a lot of optimism around the club now; it’s all about pushing on. Nantes still have the worst home record in the league but they have now won 3 of their last five home matches and this unwanted statistic should change.
Dijon are resting in 17th place and are only safe from the bottom three on goal difference from Nancy. Dijon will need to improve on their travels as they have won just one game away all season. Their overall form is poor too having lost 3 of their last four games. Dijon are a team now constantly looking over their shoulders.

Nantes vs Dijon: Predictions
There is a good mood in the Nantes camp and whilst this is a game that the club would have been more than capable of losing a few months ago they have the quality and confidence to win this game now. We will go for a solid home victory.
