March 30, 2019
One match in five stats
Discover the five stats you need to know before the fourth ever Dijon - Nice in Ligue 1 (Week 30, on Sunday at 3pm).
25 minutes to forget
During the side’s first encounter this season (Week 3), Dijon FCO secured its largest ever Ligue 1 victory (0-4). After remaining in the balance for most of the game, the battle turned in favour of Les Bourguignons, who scored their four goals in the final 25 minutes.
Jules Keita has only impressed against Nice
Jules Keita has made the difference on just one occasion in Ligue 1. It was in Week 3 against Le Gym. Coming on in the 66th minute, the Guinean scored a brace and picked up one assist in just 25 minutes on the pitch.
A balanced record
Les Bourguignons and Les Azuréens will play each other for the 8th time in Ligue 1. The two sides have both won on three occasions and have drawn once. The current form tends to sit with Dijon, who have won the last two encounters, scoring seven goals (3-2 then 0-4). The three previous matches between the two sides went in favour of the Niçois.
A spectacular final half an hour
During the last match at the Gaston Gérard, all of the goals were scored in the final half an hour. A brace for Julio Tavares (61', 78'), and a goal for Changhoon Kwon (84') secured the three points for the home side, despite goals from Pierre Lees-Melou (65') and Alassane Plea (67').
Two defeats, one victory
Dijon FCO has won two of its last three home games against OGC Nice in Ligue 1, scoring three goals in each of the last two victories (3-0 in 2010-11, 3-2 last season). The only victory for the Niçois at the Gastond-Gérard was achieved on 4 March 2017. Wylan Cyprien scored the only goal of the game, after a perfect assist from Valentin Eysseric.
