Monaco entertain Dijon in Ligue 1 action at the Stade Louis II on Sunday.

Dijon have lost 12 games in a row across all competitions, so the hosts are the favorites in the fixture.

The hosts are third in the league standings and have won their last two fixtures by a 4-0 scoreline. They also advanced to the quarter-finals of the Coupe de France after beating Metz 5-4 on penalties on Tuesday.

Dijon suffered a 2-0 defeat at Marseille last week and have failed to score in their last two outings.
