Match Preview and Predictions

  • Dijon enter this clash hoping to end a winless run of six consecutive league fixtures (D1, L5), and therefore their worst start to a Ligue 1 (L1) campaign in the club’s history. To achieve that, they will do particularly well to keep it tight late on, as they have conceded one goal precisely after the hour mark in each of their last five top-flight matches.
  • The hosts were on an impressive unbeaten run of 12 home league games (W6, D6) before a subsequent winless run of form in their opening three league home fixtures this campaign (D1, L2). Encouragingly though, ‘Les Rouges’ have won each of their last four home L1 H2Hs, while registering the game’s last goal after the 60th minute on each occasion.
  • Stade Rennais saw their unbeaten run stretched to six league matches this campaign (W4, D2), as they were held to a draw at home last time out. Goals have been a common theme in Rennes’ L1 matches recently, as each their last five outings have witnessed over 2.5 match goals, with the opening goal coming in the first 30 minutes in four of those.
  • Last season, a recurring theme for Rennes was low-scoring first halves on the road, and notably, only one of their last 14 L1 away fixtures has witnessed over 1.5 goals before the break. Continuing that trend, Rennes have scored just three (37.5%) of their eight away L1 goals this season before HT.
  • Players to watch: Eric Dina scored Dijon’s first home goal this league campaign, and has scored each of his last four competitive goals during matches producing over 2.5 goals.
  • Rennes’s top league scorer Serhou Guirassy has netted each of his three league goals to date on the road – all before the hour mark.
  • Hot stat: Rennes have lost just one of the last ten L1 away matches to see them score first (W8, D1, L1).
