Strasbourg vs Dijon
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 29th September 2018
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Meinau (Strasbourg).
Despite winning 2 games from 7 Strasbourg have really struggled this season and laboured in their matches and they come into this game in 13th position with 8 points. In midweek they lost 3-2 away to Marseille but the score glossed over their performance which was edgy and was not good.
However poor they have been so far Strasbourg could still have the opportunity to move into the top 10 with a win at home on Saturday evening. At their stadium they have won 1, lost 1 and drawn 1.
Dijon are in 9th place with 10 points and their hosts could overtake them if they win. Dijon started well in the league but their form has disappeared and they come into this game with no wins in their last 4 games and that includes 3 defeats.
In midweek at home they easily lost against Lyon 3-0 and the worry is the goals they are conceding which is currently 8 goals in their last 4 games. Dijon have not won a game since the end of August. However away from home they actually have the 2nd best record in the league only behind PSG where they remain unbeaten and have gained 7 points from a possible 9.
Strasbourg vs Dijon: Head to Head
- Dijon have no wins over Strasbourg away from home this century.
- Dijon only have 1 win over Strasbourg in any match from 9 games and this happened 11 years ago.
- The last time the teams played here was this year when Strasbourg won 3-2.
Strasbourg vs Dijon: Prediction
Our bet here is to see the draw at full time. There isn’t much between the sides but what Dijon have done so well on the road is defend and get back in numbers. They will be proud of their away record so far even if they are going through a poor moment in their season. Draws can be risky outcomes so our stakes will be low for this. We don’t expect many goals and will also back under 3 goals to occur for this game.
