Dijon vs Nice Prediction & Betting tips
Dijon and Olympique Nice are both working on one of the worst phases of the season and need a victory to be able to meet their goals for this season. Can Dijon book a big win against Patrick Vieira’s team just like earlier this season or will Olympique take Nice?
After the international break, Dijon hopes to finally be able to deal with a dramatic series of eight league games in which only one point was achieved (1-1 draw against Stade Reims) and the team descended to the penultimate spot in the Ligue 1. With nine rounds left to go in Ligue 1, the backlog of Antoine Kombouaré’s team in safe seventeenth place has risen to eight points and to make matters worse, En Avant Guingamp, the team where Kombouaré was still in charge earlier this season, has now entered the rankings ignored the mustard city team.
Both at attacking and defensive level, the team from the mustard city is currently in a bad mood and after 29 games have a goal difference of -25 (21-46) and even a dramatic goal balance of -11 (2 over the last eight games) -13). Only against Olympique Marseille and Stade Reims were scored in the last eight league games and the latter hit even came from a penalty. Top scorers Mehdi Abeid and Júlio Tavares played 53 games this season, in which they collectively reached only six hits, a performance that does not suit a team that plays at the highest level.
Just like Dijon, Olympique Nice is not busy in a very good season, but Patrick Vieira’s team still performs much better than the mustard city team with 41 points after 29 games. Achieving European football this season seems to be no longer possible for Olympique Nice and the biggest cause of this is the lack of scoring ability. In total, the team only scored 21 times this season, just as often as Sunday’s opponent, but defensively, Patrick Vieira’s team performs nicely with on average exactly one goal per game.
This season’s Olympique Nice matches are anything but a guarantee for goals with a total of only fifty goals in 29 games. Compared to the previous season, in which Olympique Nice finished eighth and European football went wrong on one point, there are an average of 1.04 goals less per game this season, and this is also reflected in the over / under statistics. Only in six of the 29 games at least three goals were scored, which is just over twenty percent.
