Monaco form and stats

The home supporters can't complain about results here at Stade Louis II. as Monaco, who have the most points (35) at home in Ligue 1, have scored 36 goals to get 35 points from 16 games. The overall stats in the Ligue 1 are 10-5-1 (wins-draws-losses).

The Monaco goalkeeper Benjamin Lecomte is looking to record 90 more "clean sheet" minutes as his team have now played 270 minutes without conceding a goal in the Ligue 1.

The spoils were shared in Monaco's previous game, also at home. Visiting Metz (after extra-time, 5-4 on penalties) (placed 9th) travelled back with a draw after a 0-0 scoreline. Previous to that game, a Ligue 1 home match hosting Metz in a game that was won 4-0.

With an average of more than two goals per home game in the league (36 in 16 games), Monaco's attacking play is working. Monaco's goalkeeper has had to pick the ball out of their own net 17 times. For more goal stats, check the Statistics tab above. There's been improvement defensively lately, as only 0 of these goals has been conceded in their last 3 home matches.

Dijon form and stats

There's been little loot from Dijon's travels as they have only collected 9 points from 15 away games in the Ligue 1. Dijon, who have the fewest scored goals (20) in Ligue 1, only have 2 wins to counter their 10 defeats and 3 draws. The sun doesn’t shine and the birds do not sing for Dijon, who have now gone 14 games without a victory. The Nimes game was their last win and it’s been a dry spell since. It's all red in the travel logs of Dijon, having lost six matches in a row as the visiting team.

The attacking players of Dijon have been feeble for some time now, the team not scoring a league goal in the last 180 minutes.

Dijon lost away at Olympique Marseille (0-2) in their previous game and are perhaps starting to feel homesick. A 0-1 loss hosting Reims before that.

With the home team given a winning probability of about 80% by the bookmakers, any positive result for the visitors would be a surprise. Checking earlier matches with similar odds with Dijon as the away team, we found three results. Statistics from these were one away win, zero draws and two defeats. The outsiders lost two of these games by at least two goals.

The visiting Dijon have scored more than one goal per away game in the league so far. The grand total is 15 goals from 15 games. The Dijon manager D. Linarès has some worries about the defense as 31 goals have been conceded in these travels.

Head 2 Head

This is not the first time this season these parties meet, as the history books show this recent fixture: Dijon - Monaco 0-1. Last ten meetings between the teams: Monaco won six, Dijon won one and three draws. four games with over 2,5 goals, six matches with two goals or less.
