Reason For Dijon vs Montpellier Predictions

  • Montpellier are one of four teams still to win an away game this season despite sitting fourth in Ligue 1.
  • Dijon are unbeaten in their last five clashes with Montpellier, winning two and drawing three.
  • Three of Dijon’s four wins have come at home this season.

An unwanted pattern in Montpellier

Montpellier extended their unbeaten streak to six games with a 4-2 victory over Amiens. It was an extremely pleasing victory for la Paillade as four different scorers saw them get past the Unicorns. It has carried them up to fourth and they’ll be hoping to keep that momentum going as they travel to Dijon. Michel Der Zakarian’s men have managed to find the right balance of attack and defence in recent weeks as they have twelve goals scored in their last six games with three clean sheets along the way.

Three victories have come in this time but with them all coming at the Stade de la Mosson, there is an unwanted pattern emerging on the south coast. Whereas Montpellier have been dazzling their fans with incredible performances at home, they have struggled to recreate that type of form on the road. They are still to win a game away from home this season and this could threaten their unbeaten run. Montpellier have managed to score 14 goals at home so far but have netted just four times on the road.

Success at the Stade Gaston Gérard

Dijon will be eyeing up this record with great intrigue but they have their own problems to attend to before they focus on the cracks in Montpellier’s armour. The Mustards have won just two of their last seven games in all competitions and currently sit third from bottom in Ligue 1. However, like Montpellier, Dijon have also had a pattern with location playing so much into how their perform.

The mustards have picked up eleven of their 15 points at home this season and are currently on a run of three consecutive wins at the Stade Gaston Gérard. One of these victories came against PSG (2-1) so it shows that they can be quite the team when the circumstances are right. Dijon should also be bolstered by the fact that they have a terrific record against their opponents for this one, winning twice and drawing thrice. 

Home form key for these teams

Montpellier have been fantastic this season but due their awful away form, we’re edging this one in favour of the hosts. Both teams have put in ‘Jekyll and Hyde’ performances when they’re not playing at their preferred home stadium but with Dijon hosting this match, we’re backing them to keep up their great form at the Gaston Gérard to beat Montpellier. 

The visitors have failed to score in four of their last six away games but we expect they’ll convert here as they scored four times at the weekend. We’re also backing both teams to score here as they market has won in each of the last five clashes between these sides, three of Montpellier’s last five games and in both Dijon’s last two home matches.
