Dijon Prediction

Dijon currently occupy third from bottom position in the French top flight which is also the relegation play-off spot and they trail fourth from bottom club Amiens by a seven point margin ahead of their Friday night clash with Rennes.

Dijon have managed to register just one win from their last 11 matches in Ligue 1 which was a highly unlikely looking away win at Lyon in a 3-1 victory which they followed that up with a point against the aforementioned Amiens in a 0-0 draw at home.

The hosts again return to their Stade Gaston-Gérard home where they’ll be looking to build upon these two recent encouraging results, but recent form on home turf has been pretty ordinary; Dijon have failed to win any of their last six at home as they’ve stumbled to defeats against Marseille, Saint-Etienne, PSG and Nice, as well as picking up just single points with draws against Reims and Amiens.

A home record of 3-4-9 11/25 tells its own story as the hosts have struggled to put any sort of unbeaten sequence together, and goals have been sporadic too as 9 of their 16 home matches have resulted in under 2.5 goals.

However, there’s always been goals when these two teams meet…

 

Key-Facts – Dijon v Rennes

  • Dijon are without a home win from their last 6 matches in Ligue 1
  • Rennes have gone 6 away matches without a win in Ligue 1
  • 5 of the last 7 meetings between these two teams have resulted in over 2.5 goals

 

Rennes Prediction

Rennes sit in the mid-table position of 10th place having gained some decent results at home having lost just four matches at their Roazhon Park throughout this season, but they head into this clash without a win from their last five matches overall in Ligue 1, so they’re by no means guaranteed of the points either in this encounter.

Form away from home has also been pretty poor for Rennes as they’ve now gone six matches without a win which includes losing four of these six matches with defeats at Guingamp, PSG, Reims and Nimes, as well as draws with Bordeaux and Angers.

Rennes posses an away record of 4-5-7 22/29 and this includes just two clean sheets on their travels to date this season, and while they were enjoying a fairly successful season, recent weeks have seen the visitors fall into a slump.

Betting Tips Verdict

Dijon will be desperate to make up ground on Amiens so they’ll be pushing for a result here while Rennes are capable of scoring goals too.
