Rennes vs Dijon Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Rennes and Dijon will square off at the Roazhon Park on Saturday evening, with both sides still looking for their first victory of the new Ligue 1 season. Rennes lost 1-2 at home at the hands of Lyon last weekend, with their consolation goal being scored by Benjamin Bourigeaud with just four minutes to go. Meanwhile, Dijon suffered a humiliating 1-4 home loss against Monaco, although they managed to pull one back just before the break through Wesley Said. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Both sides are looking for their first victory of the new Ligue 1 season, but Rennes have looked much better than Dijon. They managed to score at least once in each of their opening two games, and they are a decent side at home. On the other hand, Dijon have been terrible on the road over the past seven months as they are winless in the last ten competitive away games.

Rennes Preview

Rennes had a disappointing start to the new Ligue 1 season as they only managed a 1-1 draw on the road at the newly-promoted Troyes in the opening round and followed this up with a narrow 1-2 home loss at the hands of Lyon last weekend. They didn’t look bad last weekend against Lyon, but they have struggled in the final third despite the fact that they had the better ball possession, they managed 17 goalscoring attempts. Rennes sold last season’s top scorer Adama Diakhaby in summer and only brought in Brandon as a replacement. However, Rennes spent over €24 million on two left wingers in the shape of Faitout Mouassa and Ismaila Sarr, although the latter played as a striker last weekend. This leaves Rennes in 14th position in the standings with just one point to their name. Rennes have been a decent side on home soil over the past nine months, losing just five of their last 15 home fixtures across all competitions. Furthermore, Rennes are undefeated in their two home meetings with Dijon in Ligue 1, conceding just once in the process. Rennes have scored at least once in three of their four meetings with Dijon across all competitions.

Rennes Team News

Yoann Gourcuff, Sanjin Prcic, Rais M’Bolhi, Morgan Amalfitano and ANthony Ribelin are all backing in training.

Dijon Preview

It will be a long season for Dijon as they will definitely be involved in another relegation battle this season. They barely avoided relegation last term, but I don’t think they will have the same luck this season. The minnows suffered a 3-0 defeat on the road at Marseille in the opening round and followed this up with a 1-4 home loss against Monaco last weekend. It’s true that they have played against strong sides, but conceding seven goals and scoring just once in two league outings is not a good sign at all. Despite having allowed seven goals in these two fixtures, I think that Dijon’s main issue is going forward. They have only scored once in their last four games across all competitions and have failed to find the back of the net in four of their last six fixtures. That’s because they have sold their last season’s star striker in the shape of Lois Diony this summer, while they only brought in Benjamin Jeannot from Lorient as a replacement. Dijon are regarded as poor travelers as they are winless in the last ten competitive away fixtures while losing seven. The good news is that Dijon are undefeated in the last two meetings with Rennes in Ligue 1, conceding just once in the process.

Dijon Team News

Julio Tavares, Mehdi Abeid, Benjamin Jeannot and Anthony Belmonte are all doubts, but Wesley Lautoa is out through injury.
