Lille vs Dijon Head-to-Head
In their last meet in March 2019, Lille won 1-0 at home.
Despite its recent troubles, Dijon is not to be taken lightly as they won against two of France’s representatives in Europe, Rennes and PSG. Both wins came at home and while the Mustards haven’t been nearly as good on the road, they should be able to snatch a point in this as they travel to a Lille side lacking in confidence. Dijon is winless in their last four away games and have failed to score in six of their last eight on the road. That said, pick the game to draw with both sides to score.
