Match Preview

Standing just one point above the relegation zone ahead of this round (17th), Dijon travel to midtable Nîmes having won only two of their last 15 Ligue 1 (L1) away outings (W2, D4, L9). The hosts happen to be in improving form and have lost only one of their last four L1 fixtures (W2, D1, L1).
The hosts know that they simply must score first to give themselves a chance, as when they have opened the scoring they are unbeaten in the five L1 home games (W4, D1). On the flipside, however, they have failed to win any home league match in which they have conceded first this season (D1, L4). Relevantly, ‘Les Crocodiles’ (NÎM) have failed to score in a third of their 12 L1 home fixtures – the (joint) third worst ratio in the league.
For their part, Dijon come into this one on the back of four consecutive away losses in the league, and they have failed to score in eight of their 12 away league games this term (67%) – a (joint) league low.
‘Les Rouges’ (DIJ) have the division’s fourth-worst defensive record after conceding 1.57 goals per game to date. Yet, if they fail to score against Nîmes in this one, it would be the first time since April 2012-August 2016 that any Dijon side has failed to score in five successive away L1 games.
Players to watch: Nîmes’ joint-top scorer Rachid Alioui has four L1 goals, all of which came at home. Meanwhile, Dijon midfielder Mehdi Abeid’s three L1 goals have all arrived in the second half.
Stat attack: The hosts have scored 11 of their 16 home goals in the second half.
Both sides have scored in only three of Dijon’s 12 away league matches this season (25%) – L1’s lowest ratio.
The last four H2H league meetings played at Nîmes (albeit in Ligue 2) have ended level.
