Nice vs Dijon
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 21st September 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Allianz Riveria.
Already this season Nice have looked like being a contender for a top 4 position and then the following week playing like a mid-table side, but they will be the odds on favorites to get the win at home to Dijon at the weekend.
Nice are in 6th place and have lost 2 games from their last 3 matches. Their latest game ended in a 2-1 away loss to Montpellier. At home they have already lost to Marseille but beat Amiens.
Their most impressive result was beating Rennes away from home, which at that time Rennes had started very well and that was their first loss of the season. Nice then can be frustrating but this game is supposed to be a foregone conclusion and a win.
Dijon are bottom of the league where after 5 games they have lost 4 and drawn one. They collected their first points of the season last weekend when they drew against Nimes, that game ending 0-0. They have scored just one goal so far and have conceded 7.
Nice vs Dijon: Head to Head
Last season this fixture ended 4-0 to Dijon.
The last time the teams played each other was in March with Nice winning 1-0 at Dijon.
There is a 60% chance to see just one team score when these sides play.
Nice vs Dijon: Prediction
It is true that Dijon enjoyed a 4-0 win when they last visited this stadium. However that match was one of the first ones managed by Patrick Vieira, the Nice coach and he was just getting into his job and coaching a team in a top tier league. Nice are very settled now and a score like that will not be repeating at the weekend.
Our bet here is to back Nice, who are odds on but still a decent price of 1.72. We will also back for the club to win and keep a clean sheet, remembering that Dijon have just 1 goal all season.
Nice vs Dijon: Bet Tips:
Nice to beat Dijon at 1.72 (8/11)
Nice to keep a clean sheet at 2.10 (11/10).
