Dijon hosts Rennes in round 7 of French Ligue 1. The match will be played on Friday, October 16th at Stade Gaston Gérard (Dijon)
In the last championship, Dijon was only three points ahead of the relegation zone, but it is unlikely to escape this sad fate in the current tournament. After 6 rounds, the team has only one point. The Owls lose to everyone in a row, and even Strasbourg, which has only two points more and is two lines higher, has already beaten them. Dijon has already conceded 13 goals, and there is no light at the end of the tunnel so far. It is explainable since the entire defensive line left the team in the offseason. The goalkeeper Runarson went to Arsenal London. As for defenders, Mendel moved to Schalke, Alphonse went to Amiens, and Aguerd is playing just in Rennes. The performers who replaced them do not cope with their duties. As we see, they do not even know what to do on the pitch.

Last season Rennes won the French Cup after beating PSG in the final. And the team won bronze medals for the first time in its history. Appetite comes with eating, and the Red-Blacks are full of desire to change bronze for more expensive metal. Rennes is in the lead. It has not suffered a single defeat in six rounds. Only two matches ended in a draw, namely, the first and the last rounds of the championship. The Red-Blacks have already scored 14 goals. And they scored at least twice in five out of six games. Moreover, Rennes recently beat Lorient in a friendly match and again scored two goals. As we see, the attack of the visitors is in perfect condition.
The leader’s victory over the main outsider is estimated too highly. Well, let’s bypass it. However, the power of the Red-Blacks should be used. Rennes had no problems with scoring even in the last unfinished season. It scored 38 goals in 28 matches, and 11 rounds ended with at least two goals scored. Moreover, Rennes does not let go of its rivals without two goals scored in 16 of the last 25 matches. As for head-to-head meetings with Dijon, the Owls twice took the ball out of their net in six of the last ten cases. Given the current problems of the hosts, Rennes will probably manage to continue its scoring streak and will upset the opponents’ goalkeeper at least twice.
Prediction for the match: Rennes to score over 1.5 goals
