Dijon vs Monaco preview, betting tips and prediction: No problem for Ligue 1 champions
Monaco -2 @ 12/5 with Betfair
Dijon have never beaten AS Monaco and that’s unlikely to change this weekend. Although the visitors are six points clear of the relegation and on a decent run of form, they face a Monaco side who are unbeaten in Ligue 1 since November. Their recent victory over Lyon and equally hard-fought draw with Marseille dismissed any notion that they were a flash-in-the-pan success story.
TAKE THIS FROM BETWAY!
Monaco sacrificed their season with a series of high-profile sales last summer but Leonardo Jardim is one of Europe’s best coaches and is slowly rebuilding the team.
There are a few players in the squad that one would imagine are stop-gap solutions. The likes of former Manchester City forward Stevan Jovetic would be one. The striker is delivering the goods and scored two in the 4-0 win at Angers last weekend to take his tally for the season to six. Not a very impressive total but Monaco get their goals from all over the pitch.
CORAL HAVE YOU COVERED!
The Dijon defence will have its work cut out. Even if they concede a couple of goals, they can laugh about it in time to come. The club joked about losing 8-0 to PSG in January on Twitter after Adrien Rabiot lamented their Champions League defeat to Real Madrid. He highlighted the difference in quality between Madrid and Dijon. The minnows replied: “We did everything to give PSG confidence before Real Madrid… And this is how they thank us!”
