Nice vs Dijon Prediction & Match Preview

Nice vs Dijon
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 29th November 2020
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade Allianz Riviera.

Because of problems relating to the Coronavirus Nice haven’t played a game since November 8th and they will be excited to be back on the pitch and as an added bonus will be at home.

The clubs last match ended in defeat in the local derby as they lost against Monaco and that stopped a 4 game unbeaten run.

Despite some setbacks Nice are in a good position of 9th with 17 points and are only 3 points from third place.

However the clubs home form has suffered recently with just 1 win in their past four and they have earned just 4 points from their last available 12.

Dijon are bottom of Ligue 1 and the worry for them is that they have fallen 5 points from safety. After 11 games they are still waiting on their first victory of the season and have already lost seven times.

Last weekend they were beaten 1-0 against Lens and their last away match ended 1-1 over Metz.

Dijon has the worst away record in the league where from a possible 15 points they have won just 1. They are conceding 2 goals per game on average and have only scored 2 goals on the road.

Nice vs Dijon: Head to Head

  • Last season Nice won this fixture 2-1.

  • Dijon have scored 8 goals past Nice in the last four league meetings.

Nice vs Dijon: Prediction

Nice are the favourites but Dijon has recorded some good wins over them in recent times and knows how to score goals.

Dijon are an odd team this season because they have shown glimpses of being a very good side and yet are bottom of the league. Sometimes they just haven’t had the luck.

This match represents a very difficult game for Dijon and Nice have been well rested and have the better side, we can’t see anything other than a professional home win in this match.
