On May 26, Stade Gaston Gérard (Dijon) will host the match of the 37th round of the French Ligue 2, in which Dijon will compete with Paris. The battle will start at 20:45 CET.
The team won the right to be promoted to the elite division of the country twice in the past decade. The second attempt even resulted in five years in a row of being there, but everything ended in 2021. Having returned to the Ligue 2, “the Mustards” showed rather mediocre indicators in the previous cycle. However, one can only dream of the higher mentioned performance now. After all, the question of survival at this level becomes completely relevant. It goes without saying that it is well understood in the team, and it is trying to add in the game. The statistics have been improved since April – there appeared an unbeaten streak, which increased the chances of leaving the quartet of underdogs. It is quite natural that, having beaten a direct competitor, Nimes, with a 2-1 score in the away battle of the previous round (that was done in a strong-willed style – “the Crocodiles” had been leading by the break) and it gave an opportunity to get out to the “saving” 16th place. However, Pau lags behind only because of additional indicators, having the same 41 points.
The club came under the control of the Bahrain royal family a couple of years ago. It goes without saying that the decision was followed by a breakthrough. And according to the results of the previous season, “the Blues” managed to finish in the play-off zone, in the 4th place – however, those play-offs were lost. There were hopes for further progress. Instead, the club from the capital looks like a mediocre middle one again – in fact, this draw was wasted, and one can only wonder if the enthusiasm of the Middle Eastern millionaires has exhausted. The team was able to beat Sochaux in the previous round; at the same time, it extended its unbeaten streak. Nevertheless, it is already clear that the ambitious project will end up somewhere in the middle of the table.
The statistics of head-to-head matches
Speaking about the previous season, the clubs played for the first time, and the team from the capital took 4 out of 6 possible points. The current draw had already brought the home victory to Paris – 2-1.
Bookmakers tend to wait for the success of Dijon. Still, the team from the capital is also not bad – thus, we bet on “total: over 2.5” (odd: 1.97).
