Dijon – Marseille Match Prediction | 25-09-2019 13:00

After 5 league matches, they are in 4th place in the standings with 10 points. Even though they are meeting with a weaker opponent, they are still the visiting team this time, and I think that they wont be able to score more than 2 goals. In those last 5 clashes they recorded 3 wins, 1 lost and 1 draw, and scored 7 goals while allowing 6. On the other hand, Marseille also called the Olympians in France is doing pretty well lately. In only two of those five clashes we saw over 2.5 goals, and I dont believe that we will see plenty of goals in this match either.

For this game the coach can not count on Dimitri Payet and Rami, both injured. Olympique Marseille. It should be remembered that Florian Thauvin is the best score of the team in the championship, with 11 goals scored. It is important to emphasize that this club has difficulties to play away from home, as it has won only 4 victories in 12 games played. In this game against Dijon, coach Rudi Garca must play in the usual tactical system, that is, the 4-4-2, helping to maintain ball possession and organized attacks: Florian Thauvin and Ocampos are the most dangerous players in the game. Olympique Marseille comes into this game with a 1-0 win at the Bordeaux reception, returning to victories after two defeats in the championship: the only goal of the team was scored by Kamara.

OMs home ground Stade Velodrome was opened on June 13, 1997 and the capacity of the stadium is 67.394. It has to be noted, though, that the Stade Velodrome outfit were banned from defending the title in the 1993/1994 season after being involved in a match-fixing scandal. To make things even worse for the fans, the club suffered enforced relegation to the Ligue 2.

Their manager Stphane Jobard will have a very difficult job because without their top goal scorer his team is obviously suffering, as they havent scored a single goal ever since hes been unavailable. One of their most important players Julio Tavars is still questionable before this match. The 31-year-old attacker is still recovering from his muscle injury, and no one can say for sure if hell be ready for this match.

OM aim to bounce back from the defeat and we predict that they would be happy with one point from Fridays football match against the Mustards. Dijon did well to beat struggling Monaco in their last home game in the national championship, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of OM. Olympique Marseille just cant find their best form. The club chiefs did well to sign Mario Balotelli in the January transfer window, but the new striker did not help the team grab something from the Reims game at the weekend. The Mustards continue with their habit of struggling on the travels, but their home record is pretty fine. Dijon will be aiming to make amends for a 1-0 loss to Angers when they host Olympique Marseille at their Stade Gaston-Gerard on Matchday 24.
