Nimes vs Dijon
French Ligue 1
Date: Friday, 15 February 2019
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Stade des Costieres (Nimes).
Nimes coach Bernard Blaquart has done a superb job this season as Nimes come into this game in 11th place with just one loss in their past four games.
The club have been a fresh of breath air in Ligue 1 and they were expected to either be relegated or struggle this season and that hasn’t been the case, as their brand of attacking football will ensure their safety for their debut season in Ligue 1.
Last week they were two goals down at Nantes and came back to win 4-2 in a dominant second half display of football. From 12 games played at home they have won 4, drawn 4 and lost 4. Everything is even and level. Their last home game ended in a 1-1 draw with Montpellier.
Dijon are in real danger of being relegated as they are in 17th place and have lost their last two games. Last weekend Marseille defeated them 2-1.
They have the 4th worst away record in the league and their current away form is very poor as they have lost 4 games in a row. They have won just 2 matches on the road from 12 played.

Nimes vs Dijon: Prediction
This looks like an easy decision for us and we are going to back the home team. Nimes would have taken a lot of confidence with their win over Nantes and scoring 4 goals away is a fantastic achievement.
Nimes still like to attack and will be dangerous against Dijon who they have already put 4 goals past this season and of course Dijon have really bad form.
Everything points to a home victory and we expect Dijon to continue to struggle after this game. Nimes are odds on to win this game but they still represent some value.
