Dijon vs Angers Prediction & Tips
Although Dijon have spent five of the last ten seasons in the second division, they do not have good results in the opening days during that 10-year span (G2, E3, P5 in general and G1, P4 only in the top flight). The first of those 10 games was precisely against Angers in 2010 and ended 0-0.
Despite their shortcomings, Dijon have won 42.26% of their home games since returning to Ligue 1 (L1) in the 2016/17 season (they have avoided defeat in 69.01% of those games). In addition, they have not lost in 60% of the matches in which they conceded the first home goal during the previous L1 season (G2, E1, P2) and currently have the longest unbeaten streak at home between all L1 teams heading into this campaign (six wins, six draws).
Angers have also spent five of the last ten seasons in the second division and have a record of G4, E2, P4 in the opening days during that span. Notably, since their return to L1 in 2015/16, three of their “first matches” have recorded goals from both teams and more than 3.5 goals in total (G2, E1, P2).
Angers, led by Stéphane Moulin, have won just 17 of their last 70 away matches in L1 (24.29%), but have drawn 19 times during that span for which they have an undefeated rate of 51.43% in those matches. Angers are not the betting favorites heading into this clash and of the 12 games they played away from home in that condition last season, they avoided defeat six times (W3, E3, P6).
Players to watch: Of the players who remain in these two casts, Julio Tavarés from Dijon is the player with the most goals in the historical record between Angers and Dijon – he has three goals in 10 games. It has a record of G2, E3, P5 in those commitments.
Stéphane Bahoken has been Angers’ first goalscorer in two of the last three games they have played against Dijon. He also scored the first goal in two of his team’s last three games in L1 last season.
Highlight: Angers have scored in their seven L1 games against Dijon. He has only scored in 100% of his first division matches against another rival (Red Star – 14 commitments).
