On December 9 2016 at 19:45 in the opening game of the 17th matchday of the French Ligue 1 at the Gaston Gerard Stadium the local Dijon play against Marseille.
Dijon keep showing bad results in the Ligue 1 this season. After 16 games played there they couldn’t show any good performance and results and that is why they are among the outsiders of the national championship at the moment. In fact, Dijon are just two points above the relegation zone. We must also admit that Dijon gained 13 points of their general 16 at home. So, they seem to have a chance to compete for the points in the upcoming game.
As for Marseille, their results are very unpredictable in the national championship. In the latest 5 games they gained 7 points of 15 possible where they lost to Montpellier 3:1, Monaco 4:0, drew St. Etienne 0:0, outplayed Caen 1:0 and Nancy 3:0. As a result, after 16 games since the start of the championship Marseille have 21 points and take the 10th place in the table.
The teams only met twice. Marseille won once 2:3 and Dijon won once 1:2. Marseille look just horrible in the away games this season. In the 8 away games this season they only gained 3 points which is too few for them. Even though Dijon are by far not in their best conditions, we still think that they may compete for points in the upcoming game.
Prediction for the match: Dijon to win with +0.5 Asian handicap.
