Still leading the French League table, Nice are moving on with steady steps in their impressive title race. They will be looking to get all three points when they host Dijon at the Allianz Riviera in the 18th round of Ligue 1.
Nice have been very solid since the start of the French league season. They have been at the top of the table for the most part of the campaign with the team at the top level in terms of results and performances. Nice have collected a total of 11 points from a possible 15 in their last 5 league games. Their last game was against last year’s champions PSG away from home where both teams settled for a 2-2 draw.
The hosts are sitting at the top of the table with 40 points from 12 wins, 4 draws and 1 loss. They’ve scored 32 goals and conceded 12 since the start of the French League season.
Long-term absentees Mouez Hassen, Paul Baysse, Gautier Lloris and Mickaël Le Bihan have been joined in the treatment room by Dalbert and Valentin Eysseric for the next few weeks. Youngster Olivier Boscagli should have the chance to shine on the left flank in D’albert’s absence, either in a 4-3-3 or 3-5-2 formation.
The visitors on the other hand are still struggling around the relegation zone. Dijon have been very poor in recent weeks as they have failed to win any game in the past month. The team collected a total of 2 points from a possible 15 in their last 5 league games. Their last game was against Marseille at home where they lost 2-1.
Dijon are sitting in 17th place in the league table with 16 points from 3 wins, 3 draws and 7 losses. They have scored 23 goals and concede 27 since the start of the season.
Marvin Martin joined his teammates at the training centre this week, but remains a huge doubt ahead of the trip to Nice, as is Jordan Marié.
