Nimes vs Dijon Soccer Betting Picks
It is complicated for Nîmes. Promoted last year in Ligue 1, the Gardists had made a good first exercise in the elite but it is much more delicate. Indeed, the Crocodiles are only 19th in the classification and they are 6 lengths behind the first non-relegation. After losing 3 consecutive games against Rennes (0-1), Dijon in the Coupe de France (5-0) and Saint-Etienne, they benefited from their numerical superiority against Monaco (11 vs 9) to win themselves on Saturday evening (3-1).
For its part, Dijon is 17th and first non-relegable in this Ligue 1. But from an accounting point of view, the Burgundians have a good mattress of 5 points ahead of the Amiens barragiste. Rather interesting since January, Stéphane Jobard’s men beat Lille (1-0) before losing to Montpellier (2-1). Difficult Limonest winners in the French Cup (1-2 AP), they made a very good operation by outclassing Brest last Saturday (3-0).
The staff for Nimes vs Dijon
