Team News: Dijon
The Dijon boss Omar Daf will be happy not to have any fitness concerns at all before this clash with a fully healthy group to choose from.
Team News: Bordeaux
In an otherwise available group of players, there is just the lone fitness worry for the Bordeaux boss David Guion to be concerned about. Lucas Rocrou (Dead Leg) won’t be in action.
We’re thinking that Dijon could find themselves up against it to put one past this Girondins de Bordeaux lineup who we reckon will get a goal themselves and run out victorious.
We’re going for a hard-fought contest, finishing with a 0-1 advantage for Girondins de Bordeaux at the end of the 90 minutes.
Hopefully it’s a good one.
