Valenciennes vs Dijon Prediction
Valenciennes will be hosting on the confidence gained from the 3-0 win against Lorient in their previous Ligue 2 encounter. They are unbeaten in their last six clashes.
Meanwhile, Dijon has managed to level terms in a 2-2 draw with Metz in their prior encounter. They have drawn three of their last five fixtures.
Based on their individual performance, Valenciennes does have a better form out of the two. However, the host has been facing teams from the Ligue 2 in those records.
Since Ligue 2 is an inferior league when compared to Ligue 1 in the French football, we can say that the home team does not have all the advantage.
Besides that, Valenciennes has shown good composure at their own turf. Meanwhile, Dijon has been winless on the road for quite a lot of time now. Even so, the visitor has managed to draw their previous away game in their respective campaign.
Apart from that, Valenciennes has been losing to Dijon in most of their meetings, even at home. Since their h2h encounters have shown a chance for Dijon, the visitors gain the advantage in the clash.
Be that as it may, Valenciennes will not give up at their home ground and hence we can expect a draw too in the game. As such, it is safer to go with a double chance in the game. Also, we can expect a couple of goals in the match as both teams have been scoring well in major contests.
