Reason For Nantes vs Dijon Betting Tips

  • Dijon are without an away win since the end of September. They’ve lost each of their last four on the road.
  • Dijon have failed to score in each of their last four travelling Ligue 1 matches.
  • No team has scored less away goals than Dijon in Ligue 1 this season.

Nantes look for consistency

As things stand, Nantes are in a more than reasonable league position. They may be in 9th, but given the tight nature of table this term, they’re only three points off third, so Christian Gourcuff’s men will certainly have their eyes on the European places.

Unfortunately, Nantes are struggling at present. The top four is most certainly within their reach, but not if they continue to drop points on a regular basis. Sunday’s hosts have won just one of their last seven overall, while they’ve been blighted by inconsistency at home. Two wins were preceded by a pair of losses at Stade de la Beaujoire. They did win last time out at this venue, but they now need to back that result up with another victory. Fortunately, a match against a struggling Dijon presents the hosts with the perfect opportunity to claim three points.

Away-day woes for visitors

Dijon have been consistent on their travels this term, though disappointingly for them, they’ve been consistently poor. Sunday’s visitors have lost each of their last three travelling Ligue 1 matches, each of which they’ve failed to score in, while they’ve lost six out of eight overall on the road.

The final third has been the main issue for Stéphane Jobard’s men when playing away from home. They’re simply not scoring enough goals, as a total of just three in eight shows. However, it’s not just that they’re failing to get the ball in the net. Dijon are averaging 3.38 shots on target for on the road, which doesn’t exactly suggest that they’ve been seriously banging on the door. Such an average is poor when we consider that they’ve surrendered an average of 5.88. Moreover, Jobard’s side have been outdone in terms of shots in six out of eight on the road. They’ve also been bettered in terms of shots on target in six out of eight, so it’s not difficult to see where the problem lies.

Opportunity for the hosts

To put it simply, this is a gilt-edged opportunity for the hosts to take three points. Punters are advised to back them to do just that. Nantes’ home efforts, even if not consistent are much better than Dijon’s rather sorry away-day exploits. At Stade de la Beaujoire, the hosts have scored more than double the goals that Dijon have on the road, while they’ve also conceded half as many. On top of this, Nantes have an average-shots on target supremacy of +3.12, which is much better than Dijon’s of -2.5 on the road. Lastly, Nantes’ average of 2.00 points per home match far exceeds Dijon’s of 0.50. The hosts are a shade of odds-on in the betting, but all things considered, they could probably be a tad shorter, so a punt on the home win appeals.

In the ‘Correct Score’ market a 2-0 home win stands out. Dijon have often struggled for goals on the road, so a Nantes clean sheet appeals, especially as they’ve conceded the second-lowest number of shots on target at home in Ligue 1 this term. Nantes have also scored twice in each of their last two at home and look a good bet to repeat that feat against a relatively weak Dijon back-line.
