For this game the coach can not count on Dimitri Payet and Rami, both injured. Olympique Marseille. It should be remembered that Florian Thauvin is the best score of the team in the championship, with 11 goals scored. It is important to emphasize that this club has difficulties to play away from home, as it has won only 4 victories in 12 games played. In this game against Dijon, coach Rudi Garca must play in the usual tactical system, that is, the 4-4-2, helping to maintain ball possession and organized attacks: Florian Thauvin and Ocampos are the most dangerous players in the game. Olympique Marseille comes into this game with a 1-0 win at the Bordeaux reception, returning to victories after two defeats in the championship: the only goal of the team was scored by Kamara.

In 23 matches in this competition, he only managed 2 comebacks in the 11 games in which he suffered the first goal. This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 2 draws and 9 losses in away matches, with 18 goals scored and 31 conceded; against 6 wins, 4 draws and 5 losses at their stadium, with 24 goals scored and 18 conceded. The team has conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches, so it has not presented great defensive solidity, but their attack has scored regularly, since they have scored goals in 9 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In the last 12 away matches for this competition there is 1 period that stands out: they have scored 6 of their 16 goals between minutes (76-90 ). In the last 10 away league matches Olympique Marseille has a record of 3 wins, 1 draw and 6 losses, so they have won 10 points out of 30 possible. In the penultimate match, they lost in an away match against Reims, by (2-1).

To make things even worse for the fans, the club suffered enforced relegation to the Ligue 2. OMs home ground Stade Velodrome was opened on June 13, 1997 and the capacity of the stadium is 67.394. Olympique de Marseille participated in the Europa League final on two occasions (1998/1999, 2003/2004), but they were beaten by Parma and Valencia respectively in the title games. It has to be noted, though, that the Stade Velodrome outfit were banned from defending the title in the 1993/1994 season after being involved in a match-fixing scandal.

For this game the coach can not count on Rosier, Slit and Jeannot, all injured. It is important to underline that Julio Tavars is the great highlight of this formation, with 3 goals and 2 assists. The Dijon start comes to this game with a victory, by 0-3, in the displacement to the Iris, in a game to count for the Cup of France. In the last game for the championship, the home side lost to Angers, 1-0. In this game against Olympique Marseille, we believe that coach Antoine Kombouar will play in 4-4-2, privileging the defensive organization and counterattacks, that is, he will defend with the nearby sectors, looking for the back of the opponents defensive line.

Dijon vs Marseille Prediction

Haddadi began his career at Club Africain, but after making 102 appearances in the league for the Tunisian side he moved to France in 2017. Oussama Haddadi, who main position is left-back, scored only one goal for Dijon in the 2017/2018 Ligue 1 campaign, but it has to be noted that he made 33 appearances for the club. Oussama Haddadi is a 188-cm-tall defender who plays for both Dijon in the Ligue 1.

OM aim to bounce back from the defeat and we predict that they would be happy with one point from Fridays football match against the Mustards. Dijon did well to beat struggling Monaco in their last home game in the national championship, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of OM. Olympique Marseille just cant find their best form. The club chiefs did well to sign Mario Balotelli in the January transfer window, but the new striker did not help the team grab something from the Reims game at the weekend. The Mustards continue with their habit of struggling on the travels, but their home record is pretty fine. Dijon will be aiming to make amends for a 1-0 loss to Angers when they host Olympique Marseille at their Stade Gaston-Gerard on Matchday 24.

The hosts will try their best to end their winless streak, but against such a strong opponent, I believe that they will find it really hard to do that. These two teams have clashed on 5 occasions in recent years, and Marseille was victorious 4 times and once it was a draw. In two out of those five matches, the Olympians also kept a clean sheet, and I believe that well see the same scenario this time.

Dijon vs Marseille Prediction & Match Preview

Their manager Stphane Jobard will have a very difficult job because without their top goal scorer his team is obviously suffering, as they havent scored a single goal ever since hes been unavailable. One of their most important players Julio Tavars is still questionable before this match. The 31-year-old attacker is still recovering from his muscle injury, and no one can say for sure if hell be ready for this match.

After 5 league matches, they are in 4th place in the standings with 10 points. Even though they are meeting with a weaker opponent, they are still the visiting team this time, and I think that they wont be able to score more than 2 goals. In those last 5 clashes they recorded 3 wins, 1 lost and 1 draw, and scored 7 goals while allowing 6. On the other hand, Marseille also called the Olympians in France is doing pretty well lately. In only two of those five clashes we saw over 2.5 goals, and I dont believe that we will see plenty of goals in this match either.

We feel theyll have to impress defensively to do so and with that in mind, were now also going for a low-scoring contest with Under 2.5 Goals FT at 9/10 with Unibet. Weve seen two or fewer goals in four of their last five home outings as well as three of Marseilles respective last five trips which feels like further evidence for such a bet.

Form Summary

The worst thing is that in those 5 games they scored 1 goal and conceded 7. Their attack is clearly suffering because their top goal scorer still recovering from an injury, but their defence isnt doing the best either. They have to improve their game a lot if they want to escape the relegation zone, but I doubt that theyll manage to do much in the upcoming match since theyll be clashing with a much stronger opponent. It seems that they are finding it hard to compete against the stronger clubs in the top-flight, and after they earned their promotion 3 years ago, they barely stayed in Ligue 1 last year. Dijon, commonly known as the Mustards is in an awful form recently, after 5 matches they are sitting at the very bottom of the league standings in 20th place. In their last 5 matches, they lost 4 and drew 1.

Marseille absolutely dominated in possession and shots but could only put one past Gronimo Rullis goal. Marseille had been on a run of three consecutive wins before their matchup with Montpellier at the weekend and they showed that confidence despite the scoreline finishing 1-1.
