Nimes vs Dijon
France – Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday, 5th February 2020
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Stade des Costieres.

Nimes come into this match in 19th place with 18 points and they are six points from safety. The club got a big win at the weekend beating Monaco 3-1 and this is a huge match for the club because Dijon are the team they need to catch to try and survive in the league for another season.

Form is not good with 3 defeats from their last five but on the other hand for Nimes standard they have won 2 of their past four games, so they are shown signs of improvement. At home they have won 4 games from 11 played and have won 2 of their last 3 games here.

Dijon are in very good form losing just once from their last five games that was against Montpellier. They are in 17th place and have a five-point advantage to Amiens.

Their last match ended with a very solid 3-0 win over Brest at home, but on the road, there tells a different story where the club have only won 1 game all season. They have won just 1 point from their last 15 available.

Nimes vs Dijon: Head to Head

Nimes vs Dijon: Prediction

Nimes have a decent record at home to Dijon and the club would have taken a lot away from their victory over Monaco. A win here would really give Nimes a chance in their relegation fight and make sure that Dijon do not escape.

It could be a very close game, but we will opt to see a home win here considering how poor Dijon have been on the road. And, Nimes will want some revenge for their 5-0 loss to Dijon last month, note that defeat happened at Dijon.
