Dijon v St Etienne predictions for French Ligue 1 match played at Stade Gaston Gerard, Dijon. It is time for the first round of top French football division! Which one of these two teams will have a successful start? Continue reading below for all our premium tips and predictions.
St Etienne were one of the most pleasant surprises in the previous edition of the Ligue 1, ending it in solid 4th place and direct placement to the UEFA Europa League group stages. However, there were numerous changes within the roster during the summer, so we actually doubt they will be able to fly as high as in 2018. The first stop for the team is a tough away day against Dijon. Visitors are warm favorites for the win priced at 11/10 odds. Hosts definitely shouldn’t be underestimated here.
Dijon were forced into playoffs in order to maintain their Ligue 1 membership card. They have defeated Lens 4-2 on aggregate and avoided the relegation. Situation got much better during the pre-season matches. Dijon have played five preparation matches, won three, while lost only one to Reims. The names of the defeated teams were Auxerre, Paris FC and Nimes. We don’t think this squad is going to have troubles to avoid the red line this campaign.
St Etienne have had rough pre-season in terms of the defensive numbers. They have failed to keep one single clean sheet in the last five attempts, conceding the total of seven goals. Efficiency is at high level though. That is one of the reasons why are we going to back both teams to score in this Saturday’s clash.
