Reims vs Dijon
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 22nd September 2018
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Auguste Delaune (Reims).
Reims have experienced a little bit of everything so far in their return to Ligue 1. They have beaten both Lyon and Nice which they were expected to lose. But they have lost heavily to Amiens and were very poor when they played Montpellier. Only excellent goalkeeping made sure that they could draw 0-0 with Nantes last weekend.
The priority for the club this season is simply to stay up but their football has not really improved since last time they were in the top flight, and it will have to if they want to stay here. Currently they are in 10th place.
Dijon arrive here having lost their last two games after a terrific start. What is worrying is that they have conceded 5 goals in those matches. They are in 5th place and have one of the best away records as they have won both of their games. But in recent weeks the team have hit bad form and look very leaky at the back.
Reims vs Dijon: Head to Head
- The teams have not met here since 2011 when Dijon won 2-1.
- Dijon have won the last 4 meetings either home or away.
- Reims have not beaten Dijon for 11 years.
Reims vs Dijon: Prediction
Reims should have enough to win this game because Dijon are suffering from some problems and the home side could be meeting them at the right time. Reims are very unpredictable and could struggle to score a goal or get 3 by half time.
Dijon can’t be trusted at this time especially being away from home, they will have to work hard to get a result here which we cannot see happening. But this can be a close game.
