Saint-Etienne vs Dijon
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 3rd March 2018
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Geoffroy-Guichard (St Etienne).
St Etienne come into this match in 12th place and are on 34 points. They are looking quite safe but would like another two wins at least. They are in good form and are unbeaten for 2 months in the league. Home form started off poor but in recent weeks they have been able to address that with wins over Toulouse and Caen and in their last home match they drew against Marseille.
Dijon are one place and one point above St Etienne, so either they can pull away or see their hosts leap frog them. Like St Etienne Dijon are experiencing a good moment in the league and their only loss in a month was against Monaco which was expected. Dijon have been very solid at home but the same cannot be said for their away form. Put bluntly they have the worst away form in the league where from a possible 39 points they have picked up just 6. They are averaging almost conceding 3 goals a game.

Saint-Etienne vs Dijon: Prediction
We will go against history here as both teams need that extra win to feel safe. At the same time we can see both teams taking risks, because a loss is not fatal here. We could see a decent attacking game that can lead to goals for both teams and this will be our main bet for this game.
