Dijon vs St Etienne Prediction & Betting tips
Dijon and AS Saint-Etienne did both bad things last weekend by losing without a goal, but what do the teams see on Friday-evening?
At the bottom of the Ligue 1, the degradation battle remains incredibly exciting with the numbers sixteen to nineteen within three points of each other. Dijon is now the number eighteen with a goal difference of -18 (20-38) and seems to be able to fight with Caen and Amiens who ends in the safe seventeenth place and who does not. The team from the mustard city has done bad business in the last five games to catch some points, because in addition to a victory against AS Monaco there were four defeats to be noted, as last round of play against PhD student Nîmes Olympique where 2-0 was lost and fixed left back Oussama Haddadi got a red card in the final phase.
With no less than 38 opponents in 24 games, there is defensively something wrong with the Antoine Kombouaré team. It is remarkable that as many as 21 goals against this season fell from a dead game situation. No less than six free kicks ended this season behind the goalkeepers of Dijon (Alex Runarsson and Bobby Allain), most of all teams in the Ligue 1, but on the other hand, Dijon allowed only one opponent from a penalty kick this season.
AS Saint-Étienne, the record champion of France with ten titles in the Ligue 1, participated for a long time in the battle for a place in the top three and the corresponding ticket for the Champions League, but due to the defeat of last weekend against Paris Saint -Germain, Jean-Louis Gasset’s team seems to have been eliminated in this fight. The backlog of the eternal arch rival Olympique Lyonnais that now occupies third place is now six points and besides, ASSE has a much less goal difference and in addition, Olympique Marseille has now overtaken the Gasset team on goal difference. A place in the top four seems to be necessary this season for placement for European football, so the clear goal of Les Verts will be for the remainder of the season to overtake Olympique Marseille.
There is an immense difference this season between ASSE’s performances in their own stadium and in away games. In terms of numbers, Gasset’s team is the number two in France behind Ligue 1 with 29 points from twelve games (nine wins, two draws and two defeats) and a goal difference of +13 (24-11), but they were displaced. only eleven points (two wins, five draws and five defeats) with a goal difference of -9 (11-20) with which Les Verts only held six teams. Out of the last eight away games, a total of only six points were achieved with a goal difference of -6 (7-13), but there is a positive statistic for this match that was never lost in Ligue 1 to Dijon.
