FRANCE LIGUE 2 .............


Dijon's season has gone off the boil after a strong start, but they have stopped the rot with three consecutive draws and importantly, two clean sheets and the break will have done them a lot of good. they are still only six points off third place and could still have a role to play in the promotion race, but they need to start winning.

A trip to Gueugnon need not overly worry them, the hosts have won just once in five home starts, that being their only win of the current campaign.

Dijon have "owned" Gueugnon in recent years and have not even conceded a single goal in six meetings.

5 points Dijon level ball 2.19 asian line.


I like the home side here, despite the fact that they have only collected one point from a possible 18 ! Three of those matches came against top 4 sides, including Troyes and Nantes, probably the best two teams in Ligue 2. Defensively they are in a mess, but will no doubt have been working hard to correct those deficiencies, during the international break. Goals at the other end of the pitch have not been a problem, 7 in their last 5, including 2 against Nantes, one of only two teams to score twice verses the league leaders.

Niort are also having a tough time, they have not won in 5 and amazingly, have lost 4 from 5 on home soil, this after losing just once in two seasons at their (former) fortress. This has really knocked them for six and they are playing without confidence. Libourne do not want to be cast any further adrift at the foot of the table and have targeted this as a must win fixture, they might just be meeting the right opponent, at the right time. They can take heart from winning two of the last three h2h meetings.

5 points Libourne -1/4 ball 2.11 asian line.

Good Luck.
