Taking a look at their past results, Strasbourg:
- have not beaten Dijon FCO in their last 2 league games.
- haven’t won at home in the past 2 matches in the league.
Since being defeated in their last game at the hands of Brest in Ligue 1 competition, Dijon and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.
In that match, Dijon managed 49% possession and 7 attempts on goal with 3 of them on target. Stade Brestois 29 had 19 shots at goal with 5 of them on target. Romain Perraud (42') and Irvin Cardona (95') scored for Brest.
Looking at their form, and Dijon have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 matches, letting opponents get 13 goals in all. At the back, Dijon have some weaknesses to address. With no two games being the same, time will tell if the trend shall be replicated in this next game.
Ahead of this clash, Dijon are without an away win for the past 11 matches in the league. What a terrible run of away results.

It’s a low absenteeism rate, with just the sole fitness concern for the Strasbourg manager Thierry Laurey to be concerned about from a near full-strength squad. Matz Sels (Achilles tendon rupture) is out of contention.
Team News: Dijon
With a fully healthy group ready to go, Dijon manager Stéphane Jobard has zero fitness worries at all before this clash.
When taking all factors into account, Dijon will manage to score a goal against this Strasbourg outfit, although it might not be as many as they will have scored against them.
We are anticipating a close game with a 2-1 victory for Strasbourg by the time that the referee blows the final whistle. Looking forward to this.
