The Dijon starts for this unmotivated day after having added another defeat in the French championship, losing on Strasbourg’s ground by 3-2.

In this home game, coach Olivier Dall’Oglio must keep the team in 4-3-3, benefiting the defensive organization and the counterattacks, exploring in the best way the back of the opponent’s defensive line. Wesley Said is one of the great highlights of the formation of the house with 5 goals signed. For this game the coach can not count on Djilobodji, punished, in addition to Amalfitano and Varrault, these by injury.

It is important to note that the away team has the fifth best record to play away from home, as they won 15 points in 11 games. Usually the commander Sabri Lamouchi plays in 4-2-3-1 benefiting the possession of the ball and attacks through the corridors, especially through the runners: Ismaila Sarr is the one responsible for marking the rhythms of the game. However, the Moroccan Khazri is the great highlight of Rennes with 6 goals scored in the championship. For this game the visiting commander can not count on the injured Jordan Tell.
The market that interests us for this game is the ” plus 2.5 goals ” in the final score. I think this match will be very open and with great scoring opportunities because the two formations have more competition in the attack compared to the more defensive sector.
