Betting Tips for the game
Dijon have won their opening three league outings, but they are now on an eight-game winless streak in the league. They have lost six of their last eight league fixtures. At home, Dijon beat Nantes 2-0 two months ago, but they have lost four games in a row since then. In addition, Dijon have suffered defeats in their most recent two home meetings with Nimes.
Nimes have also endured a terrible run of form of late, as they enter the fray on the back of a nine-game winless streak in the league. This leaves Nimes only in 16th position in the standings tied on eleven points with their Saturday’s opponents, just one point clear of the bottom three. The bad news is that Nimes are winless in their last five league trips, losing three in this term.
Dijon managed a decent away draw at Monaco at the weekend and we fancy them to build on this result. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate Dijon to win at odds 2.20.
