The history of recent direct confrontations is favorable to the away team, which records 2 wins and 1 draw in the last 3 matches. The last direct match between these two teams, on 04-30-2017, ended with a draw by (0-0). In spite of being a match between 13th and 9th of the table, it is actually a match between the 9th classified in home matches and the 13th as a visitor.
The home team is currently in the 13 th position of the league, with 18 points won, after 5 wins, 3 draws and 7 losses. In the penultimate match, they won in a home match against Toulouse, by (3-1). In the last match, they lost in an away match against Amiens SC, by (2-1). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, since they have won 13 points in away matches, with 9 goals scored and 14 conceded, against 12 points won at their stadium, with 12 goals scored and 11 conceded. For the championship, Dijon FCO won 13 points out of 24 possible, after 4 wins, 1 draw and 3 losses in the last 8 home matches. In their away league matches there are a few frequent results at half-time: 1-0 (3 out of 8 matches) and 0-0 (3 out of 8 matches). The team has conceded goals in 9 of the last 10 matches, so it has not presented great defensive solidity, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 15 matches in this competition, they only got 1 comeback in the 10 matches in which they suffered the first goal.
The Dijon has in this exhibition the opportunity to conquer its fourth consecutive victory at home for the French championship and thus compensate for the negative results that has been accumulating away from home, where it lost its last two games. On the last day, he had a good performance, finishing with 62% possession of the ball and double the end of the opponent, but was not efficient and ended up succumbing to the offensive attacks of Amiens, which conquered the three points. As could be observed in that confrontation, he has a weak defensive system, which only avoided suffering goals in a match and is now among the four worst in the competition. Playing at home conquered just over 50% of the points played so far. Striker Chang-Hoon, who must remain in the starting line-up, is doing well.
The away team is currently in the 9 th position of the league, with 20 points won, after 5 wins, 5 draws and 5 losses. In the penultimate match, they lost in an away match against Caen, by (1-0). In the last match, they won in a home match against Saint-Étienne, by (3-0). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, since they have won 6 points in away matches and 14 at their stadium, with 8 goals scored and 14 conceded at home, against 12 goals scored and 6 conceded at home. For the league, Bordeaux won 6 points out of 24 possible points, after 1 win, 3 draws and 4 losses in the last 8 away matches.
In this competition, he has lost the last 4 games away. In the away matches there are some more frequent results: at the end of the first 45 ‘0-0 (3 out of 7 matches) and at the end of the match 1-0 (3 out of 7 matches). Defensive consistency has not been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In their home matches there is a tendency for few goals, since 5 of the last 8 matches for this competition have ended with Under 1,5 goals. In 15 matches in this tournament, he suffered the first goal 8 times and never got the comeback. In the last 10 away matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have scored 3 of their 8 goals between minutes (76’-90 ‘).
The Bordeaux enters the field for this game much more relieved, having managed to rediscover the path of victory in the French championship, thus interrupting a fast that lasted seven days, period in which he accumulated five defeats. On the occasion, he was not very superior to the opponent, but he knew how to make the most of the goal opportunities he had, beating Saint Étienne by 3×0. The optimal offensive performance in that confrontation was no exception, so much that he currently has one of the six best attacks of the competition, being one of the most final. Another strength of the club is the precision in the change of passes, which ends up influencing the good possession of the ball, thus allowing a good volume of goal opportunities created. The coach must maintain the team in 4-3-3 or in 4-2-3-1, with highlight for Sabaly acting on the left side.
