Reims vs Dijon
France – Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday 6th January 2021
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Auguste Delaune (Reims).
Whilst the teams are not physically bottom of the league this is still like a bottom of the league game as 15th plays 19th and there won’t be much in this contest.
Reims are 5 points clear of their visitors and have found some form where they have lost just once in their last five games. Reims are fresh from beating Bordeaux 3-1 away from home and have won seven points from their last 9 available.
Dijon have finally moved out of last position and are now 19th albeit only by goal difference. Dijon won their last game of 2020 and only their 2nd game of the season as they beat Nimes 3-1 which actually put Nimes into last place.
Dijon still have bad form but will want to carry that result into this game, however the Christmas break may have made that harder. Away from home the club have lost 50% of their games however for a club so low in the league their away form is surprising given that they have gone their last 4 games unbeaten.
Reims vs Dijon Head to Head
- Last season Dijon won this fixture 2-1.
- 3 of the last four meetings has seen both teams to score.
- Reims have a poor home record to Dijon and haven’t beaten them since 2007.
Reims vs Dijon Prediction
This is a very close battle against two teams who have had similar seasons. It is interesting to see that Dijon are unbeaten away at Reims in over 10 years and they do come into this game with some confidence.
This is why we should back the double chance on Dijon. True that record will be beaten one day and Reims will win at home against them but we really have to respect Dijon’s current away form which is very solid. Yo get the feeling both teams could settle for a point and we do not expect to see many goals.
Reims vs Dijon Bet Tips
