🗞️ Team News: Nîmes
Scotty Sadzoute (Knee Injury) and Mahamadou Doucouré (Hamstring Injury) won’t be able to feature for Nîmes boss Frédéric Bompard.
🗞️ Team News: Dijon
Thanks to a largely full-strength squad, there’s only the sole fitness problem for the Dijon boss Pascal Dupraz to contend with. Thomas Roche (Unknown Injury) misses out for this game.
We believe that Nîmes could well find it tough to put one past this Dijon side who we reckon should get the vital goal that wins it.
We’re therefore expecting a hard-fought contest, finishing with a 0-1 advantage for Dijon when the referee blows for full-time.
Should be interesting.
