Dijon v Toulouse

BETTING & MATCH PREVIEW

On Friday night, Dijon host Toulouse in a potentially vital match at the bottom of the French Ligue One table.

Dijon currently occupy one of the automatic relegation spots in the French top-flight. However, they remain just two points off 18th place Caen, who are in the relegation play-off spot. Only a win will do for the home side, who then have to hope that Caen slip-up in their final Ligue One outing of the campaign.

A 4-0 defeat at champions PSG last time out means that the home side has now lost three of their last four Ligue One matches. The fact that the home team has failed to score in all three defeats has proven a big factor in the losses.

Dijon heads into this clash unbeaten in three home games in Ligue One, having won their last two league games on home soil.

Toulouse have endured a poor finish to their Ligue One campaign and could finish the season as low as 17th if results go against them on the final gameweek of the season.

The visitors have failed to win in six Ligue One matches while winning just once in their last nine outings in the French top-flight. Toulouse have been poor defensive of late in Ligue One, conceding at least two goals in three of their last four league outings.

The visitors have been in poor form away from home in Ligue One of late, failing to win in seven matches, while suffering five defeats in the process.

TEAM NEWS

Dijon’s only likely absentee for this crucial clash is full-back Valentin Rosier, who looks set to miss out due to a toe injury. Toulouse have no reported injuries or suspensions for the encounter.

Match Prediction

Neither team are in great form. However, Dijon’s home form has improved in recent months and I believe they will record a victory, which could save the home side from relegation.
