Reims vs Dijon
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 28th September 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Auguste Delaunay.
The whole of France and then the whole of Europe were talking about Reims in midweek when they went to the champions PSG and beat them 2-0 and they deserved their victory too.
What made it so great is that PSG rarely lose games at home and in fact when you look at this game as a significant one you coul argue that it was PSG’s first loss in Paris since 2012 in the league, as the other defeats came when they had already won the league.
Reims last game ended in a 0-0 dour draw with Monaco so they will want to get back on track. Can Reims who beat the top team in Ligue 1 now beat the bottom team. It would be typical of Reims to drop points here and they would be judged very harshly if they did.
Dijon are bottom and have yet to win a game this season, with 5 losses and 2 draws.
However, they did get a decent result last time out with a draw against Marseille. Time is on Dijon’s time and they could recover but after the struggles they had last season this game might just be beyond them and they could be down in the relegation zone for much of the season.
Reims vs Dijon: Head to Head
Last season this fixture ended 0-0.
Dijon have only won at Reims once since 2008.
There is a 70% chance that both teams will score.
Reims vs Dijon: Prediction
Reims are a great price to win this match considering what they have achieved, and that Dijon are bottom with no wins. So, for us it’s a no brainer to pick the home side for this game. They should control the pace of the game and have no worries to have many attacks.
Dijon should not create many problems and if they do then Reims simply cannot be trusted to be backed, as we won’t know what type of team form, they will play game to game. Reims have just beaten PSG in Paris- this performance needs to show that quality and attitude.
