Reims vs Dijon Prediction

The hosts find themselves in 15th position, but they have scored a respectable 24 goals in the top-flight this season. Dijon, on the other hand, are the lowest-scoring side in the competition and have only made the net bulge 12 times in 17 games.

It is this lack of firepower in the final third that will prove their undoing when they travel to Reims. The hosts are finally finding their feet in the competition and we expect them to win this match, extending their unbeaten run to four games.

Prediction: Reims 2-0 Dijon
