Lille will be looking to continue their amazing Ligue 1 season when they make the trip to the Stade Gaston-Gerard to face Dijon on Saturday evening. Dijon were beaten 1-0 on the road at Amiens a fortnight ago, despite the fact they had a better ball possession and more goal attempts. On the contrary, Lille won 3-1 at home against St. Etienne thanks to a brace from Jonathan Bamba and a late goal from Nicolas Pepe. Follow all our predictions, odds, free bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Dijon enter the fray on the back of a six-game winless streak in the league, losing five in the process. They only sit 16th in the Ligue 1 table tied on 10 points with other four teams. Dijon’s home form in this early part of the season has also been poor as they are currently on a three-game losing run in the league at the Stade Gaston-Gerard.
Lille, on the flip side, have been fantastic in this early part of the campaign, having suffered just two defeats in nine games. They have won four of their last five league fixtures and are currently on a two-game winning streak. Les Dogues currently lie second in the standings, three points clear of third-placed Marseille.
Lille are one of the surprise packages of this campaign and they also hold a strong head-to-head record against Dijon. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate Lille to win at odds 2.20.
