Dijon will be aiming for back-to-back wins in Ligue 1 when they welcome Nantes at the Stade Gaston-Gerard on Saturday evening. Dijon picked up an important 1-2 away win at Montpellier on the opening round thanks to goals from Julio Tavares and Senou Coulibaly. Nantes, on the other hand, lost 1-3 at home at the hands of Monaco, with their consolation goal being scored by Emiliano Sala in the stoppage time. Follow all our predictions, odds, free bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Dijon had a terrible pre-season campaign, but they managed an excellent 1-2 victory on the road at Montpellier on the opening round of this new Ligue 1 season. They are now back on home soil where they have lost just two of their 14 Ligue 1 games. In addition, Dijon beat Nantes twice in their last three home meetings across all competitions.
On the flip side, Nantes were unable to secure a positive result in their home game against Monaco last weekend, despite the Monegasques have a weaker squad this season. They will be looking for their first points of this new Ligue 1 season this Saturday, but they haven’t been such a strong squad on the road last season. Nantes’ most recent away form in Ligue 1 reads just one victory in their last seven league trips.
Nantes have won two of their last three meetings with Dijon in Ligue 1, while losing just one in the process. Our betting tips and predictions would back Nantes Draw No Bet at odds 1.83.

Despite the fact that Dijon have won their first game of the season last weekend, their head-to-head record against Nantes haven’t been that good over the past few years.

Furthermore, it has to be said that Nantes had an overwhelming 67% ball possession and more goal scoring attempts than Monaco last weekend. Our preview fancies Nantes Draw No Bet at odds 1.83.
