Metz vs Dijon by Alcuni
Derby of the round here when Metz is hosting Dijon
Metz are not doing so great in this part of the season being on 3rd thanks to couple of good games, luck and mediocre game in most of the time. Last one they lost 1-3 away at Red Star being made groggy in 10 mins in 2nd half. Was maybe the poorest game made by Metz so far. They have had 2 weeks to recover and perhaps they forgot this one. Lejeune is back in team after serving a ban but now Tiago Gomes is suspended.
Also Dijon is coming after 2 bad results: a 0-0 at home against Auxerre and a defeat in French Cup against some amateurs. But against Auxerre they have had a long possession, without being quite dangerous in front of the goal. Being heavily dominated Auxerre had the biggest chances to score but till the end we saw a goalless draw. But missing of Said made that Dijon attack power to decrease. On the road had few false steps: losing 3 times wining 3 and drew 2. So let’s say an average team when they travel
So far Dijon proved to be the best attacking team in the league; they scored the most goals: 31 but on the road only 10. With some problems in attack I don’t see Dijon putting a lot of pressure on Metz defense. Also in defense they are good enough only 8 goals conceded, so really I don’t expect them to concede. In conclusion a not spectacular game which perhaps will end into a draw. gl
