Top Predictions and Best Odds for Valenciennes vs Dijon

There is a good chance that one of the teams from this Valenciennes vs Dijon encounter will not be playing in Ligue 2 next season, with the visiting team in a much dire situation.

Valenciennes to Win

None of these teams are playing well in recent weeks, but Valenciennes is the one who accumulated enough points earlier in the season to have a more relaxed approach for the latter part of the year. With seven points advantage over the first team in the relegation zone, Valenciennes is deciding its fate without worrying about the results of other teams. Dijon is not that lucky. They are second from bottom with five points away from safety. They have lost six out of their last eight games and have the worst away record in the league. Interestingly, they beat Valenciennes in their first match this season, but that won’t be much of a comfort ahead of this weekend’s clash.

Under 2.5 Goals

Curiously, Dijon is a top-five over 2.5 goals team in the league, but that mark stands at 12 games on either side of the fence. They did, however, have four straight matches with fewer than three goals scored. Valenciennes is one of the best ‘under’ teams in the league with 16 of those matches played out of 24. Their first h2h game of the season had three goals.

First Half Correct Score – 1-0

With the visiting team in disarray, this is a perfect opportunity for Valenciennes to put some distance in front of their rivals. Efficiency-wise, there isn’t much of a difference in this Valenciennes vs Dijon prediction, with the home side at 22 goals scored, one more than their opponents. Valenciennes scored 17 out of those 22 goals while playing at home which says a lot about the potential of the match this weekend.

Preview, Valenciennes vs Dijon Lineups, and Team Information

Valenciennes

The hosts showed how important it is to have a good start to the season. They have earned enough points to get them closer to their main goal of securing their Ligue 2 status. Quentin Lecoeuche is the only player missing from the rotation due to injury.

Continuity in the second division is far from guaranteed and they need to straighten their act if they are to keep their status. Across all competitions, they have only registered one win in their last ten fixtures. It has seen them not only tumble down the points table but also get knocked out of the Coupe de France at the hands of Paris FC. They can have a respite against Dijon, as they have lost 9 of their last 10 away fixtures, drawing the other.

Dijon

There is going to have to be a huge effort by Dijon players to stave off relegation, with their form being in a state of peril, there isn’t much leverage going forward. It is an interesting fact that both of these teams have the same amount of losses when playing away from home at eight, but the obvious conclusion is that this information will hurt Dijon more for this encounter. Thomas Roche, Christopher Rocchia, and Ahmad Ngouyamsa are players missing from the upcoming trip.

The 0-0 draw with Metz was a positive highlight from their recent outings and they will want to build up on it against a side that has been struggling of late as well. However, it will be an uphill task as they have not scored a single goal in their last five outings, all the while conceding seven goals in return. Moreover, they are winless in their last ten away fixtures. The only statistic in their favour was their 2-1 victory at the start of the calendar year over Valenciennes.
