Dijon started this season in Ligue 1 very solid and after 16 rounds they are standing at the 15th position with two points more than the first team in the relegation zone. Home side promoted last season in the best football league in France and their main goal is to stay there and avoid relegation. They failed to win in the last 6 league games, but in the last two matches they have managed to stay unbeaten, so their main goal is to take at least one point upfront their supporters. Dijon lost only once this season at home and it was defeat against Nantes in the first round. After that, they won 3 games and play 4 draws at home. They will be fully motivated to beat Marseille, but visitors have very good team and it won’t be an easy job. Last two games between Dijon vs Marseille were played in the season 2011/2012 when Marseille beat them away 2-3, but Dijon revenged them and took three points at Vélodrome. It will be tough game for home side and they will try to do their best in order to avoid defeat.

Marseille didn’t make the good start of the season in Ligue 1 and they are currently standing in the middle of the table. Their main goal is to finish the season in the Top 4 and play in some of the European competitions next season. Visitors are playing very good at home, where they are still unbeaten (5-3-0), but their away performance is very poor and they still looking for the first victory on away ground. The match against Dijon could be a good chance for Marseille to finally take all three points away, but home side is desperately need points in their relegation battle, so it won’t be an easy job for visitors to win this game. Bafetimbi Gomis, who has already scored 7 league goals this season, play very good this season and he could be one of the most dangerous player for home defence. Home side have one of the worst defences in Ligue 1 and in that fact visitors see their chance.

Team News

Home side miss Balmont and Martin due to injury, whie Moutou is suspended. On the other side, visitors will be without Diaby, Bedimo and Cabella, while Lass Diarra is doubtful.

Dijon vs Marseille Prediction

Both team need points in this game. Home team want to stay unbeaten and keep their chances to avoid relegation, while on the other side visitors want to finally take the first away win and move up on the table. I expect tough game between Dijon vs Marseille and believe that visitors could take at least one point.
