Nantes – Dijon : Preview & Prediction
The DFCO, 16th in Ligue 1, is under threat from the relegation zone since the barrage player Messin is only one unit of Stéphane Jobard’s protégés. This trip to Nantes promises to be very complicated, especially since Dijon will come to La Beaujoire amputated some important elements. Thus, Nayef Aguerd (ankle), Glody Ngonda (thigh), Frédéric Sammaritano (calf), Julio Tavares (adductors), Alfred Gomis (adductors), Senou Coulibaly (ischios) and Wesley Lautoa (thigh) will not be part of this weekend. The DFCO was hooked mid-week at home by Montpellier a few days after a failure in Lille (1-0). Outdoors, the Dijon remain 4 defeats in Brest (2-0), Bordeaux (2-0) in the Coupe de la Ligue, Monaco (1-0) and Lille (1-0). FC Nantes can rub its hands with all these absences and bounce back after losing to Parc des Princes against PSG (2-0). The Canaries, stuck in the soft belly of the classification (10th), find the Beaujoire where they remain on 1 success in front of Toulouse (2-1) and where they have already beaten Montpellier, Reims, Rennes, Nice and Paris FC.
Nantes is undefeated since 5 duels at the Beaujoire against Dijon: 3 wins and 2 draws.
The FCN had trounced 3 goals to 0 at home the DFCO last season.
Numerous absences in Dijon: Nayef Aguerd (ankle), Glody Ngonda (thigh), Frédéric Sammaritano (calf), Julio Tavares (adductors), Alfred Gomis (adductors), Senou Coulibaly (ischios) and Wesley Lautoa (thigh).
Dijon is too limited outside: 7 defeats in 9 trips (one win), all competitions.
The record of Nantes at home is very good: 6 wins, 1 draw against 2 defeats since the beginning of the season.
The balance seems to tip in favor of FC Nantes who should pocket the 3 points of victory against a team weakened Dijon at La Beaujoire.
