Montpellier 10/11 to beat Dijon in Sunday’s Ligue 1 contest
Competition: Ligue 1
Market: Montpellier win
Odds: 10/11 @ 888sport
Looking to continue on what has been a very eye-catching start to the 2020/2021 campaign, Montpellier will make the trip to Dijon on Sunday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, continuing on from what was a worrying run of form during their pre-season preparations, Dijon find themselves in the midst of what is a real struggle. In their opening four Ligue 1 matchups this year, they are yet to land a single point as we inch closer to October and they’re the only top-flight outfit who hold a winless record from their opening four appearances. Along with opening Sunday’s fixtures sat bottom of the table, it should also be noted that Dijon hold the second-worst defensive record in Ligue 1. Losing each of their opening four contests on the bounce and also signing off their pre-season run with back-to-back defeats, it should also be highlighted that Dijon are yet to land a single goal on home soil so far this season.
As for the visitors, really enjoying what has been an eye-catching start to the 2020/2021 campaign, Montpellier firmly have their sights set on securing a European return this season. In their opening four Ligue 1 matchups so far this year, they have recorded three victories against a single defeat, scoring 10 and conceding five in return. Collecting a points tally of nine out of a possible 12 and knowing a win on Sunday could see them climb back to second spot, it should also be noted that Montpellier hold the second-best attacking record in the division moving closer to October. As for their recent run of results, the guests are now in the midst of a three-match Ligue 1 winning run and have bagged a very impressive nine goals on that winning run. Given the huge gulf in class between the two sides, we’re backing an away victory this weekend.
