Teams Comparison.

After claiming their first win of the 2019/20 L1 campaign at Reims last weekend, rock-bottom Dijon finally put an end to their seven-game winless league run (D2, L5). A relieved outfit, the hosts will now be looking to register back-to-back L1 victories for the first time in over a year. However, Dijon remain winless in their opening four L1 matches at the Stade Gaston-Gérard (D2, L2), failing to find the net in each of their last three. As a result, ‘Les Rouges’ possess L1’s worst home attack after netting an average of just 0.25 goals per home fixture.

Dijon might be happy to be facing Strasbourg here though, a side they’ve never lost a L1 home match against (W1, D1). In fact, ‘Le Racing’ have registered only one win across their last ten away fixtures in the league (W1, D5, L4), and the fact that they are yet to score a top-flight away goal this term will certainly worry travelling fans. This game could be a tight clash though, especially as just one of Strasbourg’s last 11 L1 away matches have been settled by a two-goal margin or larger – albeit that was in their last road trip.

Quick Facts.

  • Strasbourg’s joint-top marksman, Ludovic Ajorque, has scored his team’s last two league goals.
  • Júlio Tavares has been directly involved in all four of Dijon’s L1 goals to date (three goals, one assist) – all three goals he’s scored came before half-time.
  • Dijon were leading 1-0 at half-time in eight of their previous nine L1 regular season home wins.
  • Each of the two top-flight H2Hs held here have produced a 1-1 draw in the second half.
  • Both teams have scored in just one of Strasbourg’s last six top-flight away fixtures.
