Dijon's main aim has been survival for some time now, whilst Nice have been targetting European qualification. A poor run of form for both sides however sees those aspirations slipping away. Both will be hoping to rediscover a bit of form as the clash at the Stade Gaston-Gérard on Match Day 30 in Ligue 1.


Dijon will certainly have happy memories from the reverse of this fixture having come away from Nice with a resounding 4-0 success. Dijon also prevailed in this game last season when edging a 3-2 thriller.


No confirmed injuries for the home side, but Senou Coulibaly does miss out through suspension. Nice will be without the injured trio of Christophe Jallet, Myziane Maolida and Ignatius Ganago.


Dijon are in a truly dire run of form at present with just the one win from their past 13 in the league. Now eight points off safety, time is running out if they are to turn things around. They have won only three of 14 at home this season, only scoring more than one goal on three occasions.


Nice are on a pretty desperate run on the road though, failing to win any of their last eight, losing their four most recent games and failing to score in any of those four games.


Nice specialise in low scoring games, and if there is to be a goalless draw on the Match Day 30 slate of fixtures, it may well be this one.






Prediction: Dijon 0 - 0 Nice
