Football Prediction of the Day Dijon vs Marseille
Even if he has some important absences, I will bet on Marseille’s victory. It has a pretty good lot and there are substitutes for the unavailable. It definitely has the purpose of at least the podium, so very few wrong steps are allowed.
The band prepared by Andre Villas-Boas crosses a good shape. She is undefeated in the last 5 matches, and in 3 of them she managed to win. And it must be borne in mind that he had uncomfortable opponents like Nice, Nantes, Saint Etienne or Montpellier.
Dijon is on the ground this season. It is the last one and this because it has gathered only one point. So out of 6 confrontations he lost no less than 5. The only one in which he was undefeated is the one with Nimes, in which he did not receive a goal. In the last 4 meetings with this opponent has suffered so many defeats.
