Dijon vs Marseille Match Preview
Marseille have dropped six points behind the Ligue 1 top 4 with losses to Lille (1-2) and Reims (2-1), which came as a huge disappointment despite finding the net on both occasions as Rudi Garcia’s men struggled to capitalize on late goals scored along the way.
Les Phoceens have had even more troubles on the road and just one win in the last seven trips across competitions could prove even more worrying, despite scoring goals on the regular. They will need more to break into the Champions League Qualifying cut and we feel the visitors could struggle to produce on the day as well.
Dijon sit in the danger zone after 22 games played but they’ve shown themselves a tough side to beat lately, only seeing their two-match winning streak ended in a 1-0 loss at Angers where a single goal from Stephane Bahoken proved enough for all three points in the end.
Les Rouges have beaten St Etienne (3-6) and Monaco (2-0) in two outings beforehand and their rock-solid defensive performances in front of the home fans lately promise another great challenge at Stade Gaston-Gerard. They can hardly boast consistency but Dijon still conceded just three goals in five home outings since November and building on the tally could prove crucial for their ambitions.
We will thus stick our necks out for Dijon to hold off the rivals and capitalize on their woes of recent, going for an enticing Double Chance – Home win or Draw at 5/6 with Betway.
We feel they’ll have to impress defensively to do so and with that in mind, we’re now also going for a low-scoring contest with Under 2.5 Goals FT at 9/10 with Unibet. We’ve seen two or fewer goals in four of their last five home outings as well as three of Marseille’s respective last five trips – which feels like further evidence for such a bet.
