Dijon vs Amiens Betting Prediction
A big match for today is our soccer pick from France Ligue 1!
Dijon are out to continue their impressive streak of home results when they take on 16th placed Amiens in Ligue 1 (L1). While Dijon are unbeaten in their last five games at the Stade Gaston-Gérard (W4, D1), their visitors have lost all but one of their away matches during that time.
Amiens’ ponderous displays on their travels have seen them lose five times on the trot since the start of 2018, before snapping that worrying run with a hard-fought 1-0 victory away to Nantes.
They need to build on that, and fast. The Unicorns are not far away from danger in 16th and could drop into the bottom three should they fall to another defeat and see other results go against them.
Dijon have won eight of their last nine home league matches but were 2-1 losers in this fixture last year. Their last win over Amiens came in 2009, and that was back in the second-tier of French football.
Amiens are the second-lowest scorers in L1, and their tally of 23 is utterly dwarfed by Dijon’s 40 after the same number of games (28). Dijon have additional reason to be confident, having won eight of their last nine home matches in L1.
Betting Tips Players: Julio Tavares is Dijon’s top scorer this season with 11 goals to his name. The striker has found the net twice in his last three outings.
With former Chelsea striker, Gael Kakuta, who has scored five goals for Amiens, out injured. Moussa Konaté will likely have to step up the pace and add to his current haul of seven goals.
Betting Tips Strategy: There have been under 2.5 goals scored in 11 of Amiens’ last 12 away games.
Meanwhile Dijon have scored over 1.5 goals in seven of their last eight home matches in L1.
