Dijon FCO welcome the visitors Montpellier HSC in the French Ligue 1 – Round 20. The match will be held on Sunday, January 13th, at the Stade Gaston Gerard (Dijon).
Dijon FCO feature 2 consecutive losses ahead of the winter break; in both of these encounters, the hosts failed to score. Actually, the team’s attack are not blistering this season. It is not a surprise though – Kwon Chang-hon has recovered just recently, Wesley Said has showed off only in the cup fixture versus Cannes. Therefore, the ‘Red’ managed to make only 16 goals in the Ligue 1 rounds, which is one of the worst records. Even at home, the team could not score in 4 of 8 encounters. As for Dijon’s defense – there are no drastic changes here. Same as in the last campaign, the hosts consistently make defensive mistakes. As a result, they allowed 31 goals in 18 clashes, playing ‘to nil’ in only 3 latest matches.

This season Montpelier HSC’s run is more successful than the previous one. ‘La Paillade’ are more effective in their attack now, counting 25 goals in 17 Ligue 1 rounds. Compare, for example, their last season’s record of 36 goals made. That said, Montpellier failed to net in only 1 outing. Their defense are more secure now, they missed just 13 goals, which is league’s second best result. Not surprisingly, the guests’ defense failed only 3 times in 17 rounds.
In the first term, Dijon managed to win Montpellier, yet away, but the team featured some luck there. That meeting was held in the start of the season when the ‘Red’ did not struggle at all. After their bright August performance, Dijon celebrated only 1 win, yet over the main candidate for relegation. They are bleak in their last encounters. The visiting ‘Paillade’ are capable of not losing on Sunday at least. In fact, in this run, Montpellier lost only to Angers away. In their previous encounters, they conceded just to Lille, while holding off Rennes’ and Lyon’s attacks. The guests will probably make 1 or 2 goals, and the hosts will hardly manage to surpass their solid defense.
Prediction for the match: Montpellier HSC to win with a 0.0 handicap.
