Our Prediction:

Marseille will win

Dijon – Marseille Match Prediction | 25-09-2019 13:00

The Mustards are low on confidence ahead of the visit of Olympique Marseille and seeing that the visitors have been in a fine form of late, we do not believe that the rock-bottom side are capable of putting an end to their six-game winless run in the French top flight. Dijon just cant find their form at the start of the new Ligue 1 season, with the team collecting only one point from possible 18 to date.

The hosts will try their best to end their winless streak, but against such a strong opponent, I believe that they will find it really hard to do that. These two teams have clashed on 5 occasions in recent years, and Marseille was victorious 4 times and once it was a draw. In two out of those five matches, the Olympians also kept a clean sheet, and I believe that well see the same scenario this time.

Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:

Olympique de Marseille participated in the Europa League final on two occasions (1998/1999, 2003/2004), but they were beaten by Parma and Valencia respectively in the title games. OMs home ground Stade Velodrome was opened on June 13, 1997 and the capacity of the stadium is 67.394. It has to be noted, though, that the Stade Velodrome outfit were banned from defending the title in the 1993/1994 season after being involved in a match-fixing scandal. To make things even worse for the fans, the club suffered enforced relegation to the Ligue 2.

The worst thing is that in those 5 games they scored 1 goal and conceded 7. Their attack is clearly suffering because their top goal scorer still recovering from an injury, but their defence isnt doing the best either. They have to improve their game a lot if they want to escape the relegation zone, but I doubt that theyll manage to do much in the upcoming match since theyll be clashing with a much stronger opponent. It seems that they are finding it hard to compete against the stronger clubs in the top-flight, and after they earned their promotion 3 years ago, they barely stayed in Ligue 1 last year. Dijon, commonly known as the Mustards is in an awful form recently, after 5 matches they are sitting at the very bottom of the league standings in 20th place. In their last 5 matches, they lost 4 and drew 1.

Dijon vs Marseille Best Bet

Their manager Stphane Jobard will have a very difficult job because without their top goal scorer his team is obviously suffering, as they havent scored a single goal ever since hes been unavailable. One of their most important players Julio Tavars is still questionable before this match. The 31-year-old attacker is still recovering from his muscle injury, and no one can say for sure if hell be ready for this match.

There is a tendency for goals in their home matches, as 9 of the last 10 matches for this competition have ended with Over 1,5 goals. In 22 matches in the competition, they suffered the first goal 13 times and only managed 1 comeback. Defensive consistency has not been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. There is 1 period that stands out in the last 10 home matches for this competition: they have suffered 7 of their 16 goals between minutes (16-30 ). For the championship, Dijon FCO won 11 points out of 30 possible, after 3 wins, 2 draws and 5 losses in the last 10 home matches. This is a team that usually maintains its competitive levels in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 5 wins, 3 draws and 7 losses in away matches, with 22 goals scored and 22 conceded; against 5 wins, 3 draws and 7 losses at their stadium, with 16 goals scored and 23 conceded. The team comes to this match after a win away with Iris Club de Croix by (0-3). In the penultimate match, they won in a home match against AS Monaco, by (2-0). The home team is currently in the 16th position, with 20 points won, after 5 wins, 5 draws and 12 losses. In the last match, they lost in an away match against Angers, by (1-0).

Marseille absolutely dominated in possession and shots but could only put one past Gronimo Rullis goal. Marseille had been on a run of three consecutive wins before their matchup with Montpellier at the weekend and they showed that confidence despite the scoreline finishing 1-1.

007 Soccer Picks

For this game the coach can not count on Rosier, Slit and Jeannot, all injured. It is important to underline that Julio Tavars is the great highlight of this formation, with 3 goals and 2 assists. The Dijon start comes to this game with a victory, by 0-3, in the displacement to the Iris, in a game to count for the Cup of France. In the last game for the championship, the home side lost to Angers, 1-0. In this game against Olympique Marseille, we believe that coach Antoine Kombouar will play in 4-4-2, privileging the defensive organization and counterattacks, that is, he will defend with the nearby sectors, looking for the back of the opponents defensive line.

Haddadi began his career at Club Africain, but after making 102 appearances in the league for the Tunisian side he moved to France in 2017. Oussama Haddadi, who main position is left-back, scored only one goal for Dijon in the 2017/2018 Ligue 1 campaign, but it has to be noted that he made 33 appearances for the club. Oussama Haddadi is a 188-cm-tall defender who plays for both Dijon in the Ligue 1.
