Dijon vs Monaco

Monaco travel to Dijon as the 2nd best form team presently, and will be aiming to win and take a temporary lead in Ligue 1 putting pressure on rivals Nice and PSG. Monaco have relied a lot on their offense this season after manager Jardem has changed their system of play. The team has a lot of firepower up front with the likes of Falcao (5 goals), Lemar (5 goals), Germain (5 goals) and Carillo (5 goals) and Boschilla 5 goals, showcasing the efforts from all over the pitch seeing them net 43 goals in 14 games, which is the best in the division by some distance. The team showcased on Saturday a superb showing against Marseille where they smashed their rivals by a score of 4-0 in a particularly dominant match up. Monaco will rely on their strong offensive showing to outscore their opponents that has seen them only lose 2 games in the whole season.

Dijon conversely are really struggling and are sitting in mid-table and are now without a win in 5 straight games in all competitions. Dijon struggles have come on the defensive end, where they have struggled to keep good teams quiet, conceding 3 goals to Bordeaux, 3 to PSG, 2 to Lyon; conversely they also struggled against average teams like 3 to Angers, 3 to Montpellier and 3 to Guingamp. Dijon have just come up from Ligue 2 this season, but with the exception of Diony, the team has not been even half decent to score enough goals to survive.
With Monaco in such dominant form beating all opponents and on a 5 game winning streak, I am expecting Monaco to continue their winning run, and probably win this game by a minimum of a 1 goal margin in this encounter.
