Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Sunday’s football game at Stade Gaston Gerard pits together Dijon and Lens, the two teams who are eyeing the Ligue 1 survival. The Owls are still after their first win of the season, and we are positive that they will leave their hearts on the field against Lens. England international Panzo returns from suspension for the hosts, while Chala and Sammaritano have overcome coronavirus. Lens, on the other hand, came from behind to play out a thrilling 4-4 draw with Reims in their last league match.
The Yellow-Reds welcome Gradit and Cahuzac back to the starting line-up following suspensions, and that is probably the main reason why we predict that the visitors are going to grab something from the match. A close encounter is on the cards, and we believe that punters from all four corners of the world can find value in betting on draw.
