Lorient vs Dijon Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Dijon will be looking to extend their unbeaten streak in Ligue 1 when they travel to the Stade Yves Allainmat - Le Moustoir to take on Lorient on Saturday night. Lorient were thrashed 4-0 on the road at Monaco last time out, conceding three goals in the first half. On the flip side, Dijon managed a goalless home draw against Lille despite they had a better ball possession and more goalscoring opportunities. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Lorient Preview

Lorient’s two-game winning streak across all competitions ended in a disappointing manner last weekend, as they suffered a heavy 4-0 defeat on the road at Monaco. Lorient have looked pretty solid going forward over the past few months, but they were unable to find the back against the Monegasque side last time out. This leaves Lorient on the bottom-place of the Ligue 1 table with just 18 points to their name after 21 rounds, three points behind safety. Keeping the ball out of their net has been Lorient’s main issue throughout this Ligue 1 campaign as they hold the worst defensive record in the division, conceding 43 goals in 21 league fixtures. They have conceded at least once in each of their last 17 games across all competitions. Despite their recent mini blip, Lorient can count on their home form ahead of this clash as they picked up wins in their last four games in all competitions, scoring at least two goals in each of these. Furthermore, Lorient are undefeated in the last three home meetings with Dijon in all competitions, keeping a clean sheet in each of these. Benjamin Moukandjo and Majeed Waris have been Lorient’s most in-form players throughout this Ligue 1 campaign, as the pair bagged 13 goals and three assists between them.

Dijon Preview

On the contrary, Dijon enter the fray on the back of a four-game unbeaten streak across all competitions, winning two and drawing two in this term. Dijon have conceded 30 goals so far this season, but they have improved considerably at the back over the past month. They have kept three clean sheets in the last four games in all competitions, while conceding just once in the process. At the other end of the field, Dijon managed a decent tally of 27 goals in 21 rounds. Julio Tavares and Lois Diony have been Dijon’s most influential players so far this season, as the pair bagged 11 goals and seven assists between them. On the road, Dijon have only won once in their eleven competitive away fixtures, but they are still winless in ten league games this season. The good news is that Dijon are currently on a two-game unbeaten run on the road, including a 0-2 win over Louhans Cuiseaux in Coupe de France three weeks ago. Dijon are in the safe zone of the league table at the moment, but they are tied on 21 points with Metz, who sit on the first relegation place.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Lorient looked incredibly strong on home soil over the past few months, winning the last four games across all competitions and scoring at least two goals in each of these. Furthermore, Lorient are unbeaten in the last three home meetings with Dijon in all competitions, keeping a clean sheet in each of these. This having been said, I’m backing Lorient to grab all three points in this one.
