Monaco – Dijon : Preview & Prediction
AS Monaco, 15th, was stolen the point of the draw at St Etienne (1-0) on a goal awarded to the Greens after a foul on a Monegasque at the start of the action. This failure puts an end to the good series of 3 wins by Leonardo Jardim’s side against Rennes (3-2), Nantes (1-0) and Marseille (2-1) in the Coupe de la Ligue. The ASM will want to start again and regain the first half of the table with a victory over Dijon, 16th. Undefeated for almost two months at Louis II, the club of Rocher remains on 4 victories ahead of Nice (3-1), Brest (4-1), Rennes (3-2) and Marseille (2-1). A fifth success at home against a Dijon team that remains on 2 failures in Brest (2-0) and Bordeaux (2-0) in the Coupe de la Ligue? The DFCO has emerged from the relegation zone but the Burgundy club could go back in case of a poor performance in the Principality. Dijon, to everyone’s surprise, beat PSG (2-1) at home last Friday and ended a series of 3 games without success. But with already 5 setbacks in his 7 trips, the DFCO shows its limits far from Gaston Gérard.
In 9 duels, AS Monaco lost only once against Dijon.
At Louis II, the ASM posted 3 wins and 2 draws against the DFCO, Ligue 1 and Coupe de la Ligue included.
Louis II is once again an impregnable fortress! The Monegasques have won their last 4 receptions (Nice, Brest, Rennes, Marseille).
Dijon has lost 5 times in its last 7 trips in all competitions.
Monaco, 15th, is only 3 points from 5th place … the “Red and White” will be determined to get closer to the Top 5.
AS Monaco will want to chain a fifth victory in a row to Louis II and erase the injustice suffered in St Etienne.
