Competition: Coupe de France
Market: Lille win
Odds: 3/4 @ 888sport
Two sides turning their attention back to Coupe de France action on Wednesday evening, Lille will make the trip to a struggling Dijon in midweek.
Starting with the hosts, hit with what turned into a thumping defeat away at Montpellier over the weekend, Dijon find themselves in the midst of an extended rut since returning from the festive break. Eventually shipping a quartet of goals away at Montpellier in what was a 4-2 drumming, the Owls are already tipped as a leading relegation scrapper this season. Already sat seven points adrift of safety, David Linarès’ men have lost their four three Ligue 1 contests on the bounce and they have failed to land a single win since returning to action last month. Holding a woeful record for their issues at the Stade Gaston-Gérard and remarkably yet to record a single victory on home soil since opening the 2020/21 campaign, a struggling Dijon should face another overwhelming test in midweek.
As for the visitors, while Dijon might find themselves in the midst of another worrying rut, Lille have continued to gain a string of plaudits from across Europe this season. With a Europa League knockout tie against Dutch giants Ajax fast approaching, Lille also have a stunning Ligue 1 title charge on their agenda. Still holding onto a two-point buffer at the top of the table and promising a famous campaign at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy, Christophe Galtier’s men put in another eye-catching display over the weekend. Eventually cruising their way to a deserved 2-0 victory against Nantes, Lille have won their last six straight contests on the spin. Landing themselves a 2-0 win when they made the trip to Dijon back on December 16th, we’re backing a similar outcome on Wednesday evening.
