The last placed Dijon are going to host the league leaders Rennes on this Friday counting for the 7th round of French Ligue 1. This is a classic top vs. bottom clash but it is still possible to find value on the visitors’ side.
Having drawn only once and lost 5 times, Dijon hit the rock bottom this season. They were also performing below average in the 19/20 season which was cancelled due to COVID-19. In fact, they were only 3-point secure off the relegation zone. Their last victory in Ligue 1 was on March before the pandemic broke out. Of course they will snap this negative streak soon or later but considering that they will face the most in-form team in this campaign, I will tend to say that there is still time.
Rennes, on the other hand, have had an incredible start to the new season. We are so used to see PSG on the top of the table. It’s nice to see different faces from time to time. Wait, I will correct myself here because Rennes were already a team at the top 3 in the 19/20 season. Therefore, it is no coincidence that they are now sitting at the top of the table with 4 victories and 2 draws. Compared to the last season, they have improved on the offensive end having scored in every fixture played so far. Their 0-3 victory against Saint-Etienne was quite impressive so it is the 2-1 victory over Monaco and 2-4 victory over Nimes. They will have to face to PSG three rounds later; therefore, they need to gather as much as points they can before the boss fight.
All in all, considering how much Rennes have improved and Dijon’s deteriorating performance, I’m willing to take my chances by betting in favor of the visitors. My pick is Rennes to win.
