What a complicated start to the season for Dijon! Already in difficulty during the two previous exercises, the DFCO found itself closing the rear in the standings with only 4 points taken in 10 games. Worse yet, the Burgundians have not yet won the slightest victory this year and appear as the weakest team in this championship. On the other hand, Frédéric Sammaritano’s partners have lost only one of their last 4 games. It was against PSG (4-0). Otherwise, they managed to hang Rennes (1-1), Lorient (0-0) and Metz (1-1). Despite this slight improvement, the leaders thanked coach Stéphane Jobard and sports director Peguy Luyindula.
For its part, Lens continued its momentum after climbing in the offseason. Far from being clumsy in this championship, the Sang et Or are in 11th place in the standings with 14 points on the clock despite 2 games behind their main competitors. Since their last success against Saint-Etienne (2-0), the Lensois have been heavily beaten in the derby of the North against Lille (4-0) before being affected by the Covid which sidelined them in two days. For its return to competition, Racing managed to pick up the score against Reims after a crazy match after starting added time with 2 goals behind (4-4).
