FRANCE LIGUE 2
DIJON - BASTIA
Hosts remain in the bottom three, despite putting in four decent performances in a row and doing us a couple of favours.They face a daunting trip to Nantes next week, so will need something from this evening.
Bastia still have a chance of promotion, but it is looking increasingly slim, they have only (narrowly) beaten struggling Libourne in their last 4 starts and might have one eye on their cup visit to PSG next midweek. They are missing a few defenders and I like the home team, who I consider to be the more motivated.
5.5 points Dijon level ball 2.11 asian line.
MONTPELLIER HERAULT- AMIENS SC
Montpellier never (well hardly) concede at home, but may be forced into a more attacking approach this evening by their offensive minded visitors. Amiens last 10 games have produced 31 goals, 4 of their last 5 have been "over", all 5 two or more goals, with an average 3.4 per game.
H2h record offers promise, with 7 of the last 8 meetings all producing two or more.
I feel that the hosts owe their fans a bit of entertainment and with a limited amount to now play for in the league, this could open up.
5.5 points "over" 2 goals 1.90 asian line... now 1.86
Finally, I like the hosts here. Guingamp are very difficult to beat on home soil and remain in good form, with just a single defeat in 10 starts.
The visitors are without a number of players this evening and have already lost 8 on the road, only basement club Gueugnon have recorded more. They concede freely, an average of 1.64 per away game.
History also favours the home win, with Guingamp winning the last 3 at the Roudourou stadium.
5.5 points Guingamp -1/2 ball 1.92 general quote.... now 1.86
