Dijon take on the visitors Monaco at “Stade Gaston Gerard” in the matchday two of the France’s Ligue 1. The game will be played on Sunday, August 13th.
Dijon were merely relegated last season as the team finished on the 16th place with 37 points earned and 46-58 goal difference being only one saving point ahead of the team which was consequently relegated. During the summer break Dijon had ups and downs in the friendly clashes while the start of the season in the Ligue 1 was a real disaster due to the schedule: “The Mustards” lost 0:3 to Marseille on the road in the first round with even stronger Monaco waiting for them in the upcoming match at the home ground.

Monaco are the champion of France. Leonardo Jardim’s side went through changes with couple of last season’s team leaders having left the club. Still, the team looks strong and well-balanced among other sides of the Ligue 1. “Les Monegasques” have played two games in the new season having been beaten in the Super Cup final by Paris SG with 1:2 scoreline and broke Toulouse 3:2 in the first matchday of the Ligue 1. The main drawback in the team’s play in defense as the it has conceded four goals in two encounters which is too many, therefore, Monaco have to work on it.
Dijon and Monaco have met five times with two head-to-heads ending in draws and three victories gained by “Les Monegasques”. As the first round showed, Dijon are not ready to play on equal against the Ligue 1 leaders, therefore, I believe that the visiting side is quite able to pick up three points.
Prediction for the match: Monaco to win.
