A High Scoreline Expected

Our first prediction is a high scoreline of more than two goals. These two teams have all but struggled defensively. Six of Dijon’s last ten games have had more than two goals. Defensively, the hosts are second-worst in the league after conceding 61 goals and scoring only 23 in 34 games so far. A poor run of results for Metz due to a troubled defence is why we also see Metz conceding goals in this game. The visitors have conceded an average of two goals in five of their last seven games. Dijon hosts Metz after 5-1 thrashing by Rennes. Metz also lost 3-1 in their fixture against PSG last weekend.

Both Teams will Find the Net

In a fixture like this, we expect an open game. Dijon may have little to play for but scoring goals in this fixture is good on the books. Weak defences on both ends will leak goals in this fixture. Moreover, a poor form that has contributed to poor results is the last five games will be manifest on Sunday when Dijon host Metz at Stade Gatson Gerard.

Dijon to Win or Get at Least a Point

This is a fixture between two struggling teams so everything boils down to how both managers will plan their outfits. With only one draw encounter between Dijon manager, David Linares and his counterpart, Fredric Antonetti, a show of might will likely go down to the wire. The reverse fixture ended 1-1 during which Dijon had 7 shots target on the road against 4 shots on target for Metz. We are giving Dijon a home advantage in this game by backing victory or draw for the hosts.

Game Preview: More Misery for Dijon

Dijon and Metz are both in Miserable form going into this game. While Metz has mathematically secured Ligue 1 stay, Dijon’s only hope in this game is to keep prevent Metz from securing victory against them this season.

Dijon

After two seasons in Ligue 1, Dijon goes down miserably. They have conceded 61 goals and scored 23 with only four games to go. Winning only 3 of their last 34 games Ligue 1, Dijon hopes to keep their Ligue 1 home record against Metz on Sunday. In the two seasons they have been in Ligue 1, the hosts never lost at home to Metz. The Sunday fixture is another opportunity to prove their good record against the visitors.

Metz

The tenth position in Ligue 1 looks good for Metz. However, a tight competition this season where only 12 points separate the visitors from the relegation zone means they can still fall down the table. Metz secured a crucial one point in the reverse fixture. However, a series of mixed results are alarming for Metz when they travel to Dijon, having recorded no away victory since 27th February.
