Saint-Etienne to Win

It’s hard to take a look at this game and decide who is the favourite, especially since it is the first round of the new season and both teams have had their ups and downs in recent years.

However, Saint-Etienne played in Ligue 1 last season and they didn’t even get relegated directly, so we would give them the advantage at the start of the new season in the second French league. After all, Dijon didn’t impress last season, finishing it around the middle of the standings.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

While we saw three or more goals only twice in the last five h2h duels between Dijon and Saint-Etienne, we can see that happening in this game after all.

The reason lies in the fact that Dijon averaged 2.66 goals per game in Ligue 2 last season, which was the second-highest average in the league. Meanwhile, Saint-Etienne averaged 3.13 goals per game in Ligue 1 last year, so we can see this being a high-scoring affair.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Both teams have scored in just two of the previous five head-to-head meetings between Dijon and Saint-Etienne, but we expect to see goals on the both sides of the court in this game.

After all, both teams scored in 53% of all Dijon games in Ligue 2 last season, while the same thing happened in 68% of all Saint-Etienne matches in the league last season.

Dijon vs Saint-Etienne preview: Can the guests start a season with a win?

Dijon

The last season for Dijon was pretty much an unremarkable one since they finished it right in the middle of the standings in Ligue 2. So, there wasn’t much excitement for their fans in the latter stage of the season and they are certainly hoping that their team can do better in this one, perhaps getting into the top half and pushing for promotion.

Saint-Etienne

After a poor season in Ligue 1 in which they narrowly escaped direct relegation, Saint-Etienne failed to avoid that faith in the playoffs after they lost to Paris FC. So, the famous French club will now play in Ligue 2, looking for a good campaign to bring them back to the top flight after just one season.
