Dijon vs Rennes Prediction & Betting tips
The seventh round of Ligue 1 will be kicked off on Friday-evening by Dijon and Stade Rennais, who are the last players and leaders respectively. Does Stade Rennais also realize the big difference in the ranking on the field?
After six rounds of play, Dijon is still waiting for a win this season. Les Moutards started the season dramatically with four losses in a row, but appeared to be recovering at the end of September with a nice 2-2 draw against then leader Montpellier. Just before the international break, Stéphane Jobard’s team suffered a hard 3-0 defeat on a visit to Girondins de Bordeaux. Moreover, the team from the mustard city itself only had one shot on target and thus left a very weak impression.
Dijon is currently one of the top favorites for immediate relegation, and that’s not just based on its poor performance so far. The quality of the selection of Dijon is simply a lot less this season and that is partly due to the departure of goalkeeper Alfred Gomis and defender Nayef Aguerd to Stade Rennais for a joint amount of fourteen million euros. In addition, the team hires Sacha Boey for the rest of the season, a twenty-year-old fullback, who this season was especially notable for a red card in the first half of the season opener against Lille.
After six rounds of play, Stade Rennais is the surprising leader of the Ligue 1. So far, the team of Julien Stéphan has only lost points twice in a draw against Lille and Stade de Reims and Stade Rennais, together with Lille, is the only unbeaten team in the Ligue 1 this season. On paper, Stéphan’s team is therefore well positioned for the debut in the Champions League next week against the Russian FK Krasnodar, the current number eight of the Premjer-Liga.
Stade Rennais will certainly not play in the strongest possible line-up against Dijon on Friday evening. Captain Damien Da Silva and Stephen N’Zonzi are both suspended for Friday’s game and les Rouges et Noirs also have a number of injuries, mainly in the forefront. M’Baye Niang has been injured for several weeks and recently Martin Terrier, who was taken over from Olympique Lyonnais this summer for twelve million euros.
