Nantes to get another victory

Dijon has lost nine of their last ten fixtures. They welcome Nantes at Stade Gaston Gerard on the back of three heavy defeats in a row. Dijon has nothing to fight for having been relegated two weeks ago. However, this fixture is of great significance to Nantes. The visitors are battling relegation with only two points off the red zone and three points from the 14th spot. Going by how Nantes has performed in recent games, winning the last three games, two of which on the road, we fancy them to get another huge victory on Sunday.

More than two goals

The second pick by Punditfeed tipsters is more than two goals. The hosts play awfully that gives the visitors a leeway in this game. Moreover, the hosts have lost the last nine of ten games. They conceded an average of three goals per match in the last ten games. On the other hand, Nantes have scored an average of three goals per game in their last three games, all of which they won.

At least two goals in the first half

We are also predicting more goals in the first half. We premised this tip on the second prediction. Dijon is terrible defensively and keeping Nantes from scoring will be a tall order. The hosts have conceded 69 goals in 36 games, the worst in the league. Moreover, Dijon has only won one game at home this season. And with nothing to play for, a leaking defensive will likely compound their woes on Sunday.

Fixture Preview: Can Nantes make it four consecutive victories and move to safety?

Nantes is relentless in their fight for survival. In this game, it is all about survival. Let’s dig deeper in our game preview below.

Dijon

The hosts have been the biggest casualties this season with the worst record both at home and away. For manager David Linares, this fixture is more of an obligation than a quest for anything. We don’t see how they will prevent Nantes from getting all points in this game.

Nantes

Nantes secured a point in the reverse fixture. And now that the visitors need more points to survive the drop, manager Antoine Kombouare will go all out with his squad to secure a fourth victory in a row. Nantes is having an unbelievable resurge and winning the remaining two fixtures will get them to safety.
