The two champions got off to a positives tart to the new Ligue 1 campaign last Friday when they saw off Toulouse 3-2 at Stade Louis II.
Monaco should not have too many difficult game in maintaining the perfect score after the second round and the meetings with Dijon on Sunday evening at Stade Gaston-Gerard.
The host team, Dijon have hardly saved the top tier status in the last season and it look like Olivier Dall’Oglio and his men are in for another hustling season.
The team just sold out their top scorer, Lois Diony to Saint-Etienne leaving the hole in the final third.
The absence of Diony can best be respected by the look at Dijon’s most recent results since the hosts is Unable to net a goal in four of their last five games (including pre-season friendlies and the season opener with Olympique Marseille).
The team coach, Leonardo Jardim still bad impression when it comes to the departure of his star man Kylian Mbappe who is very intimate to Real Madrid’s move.
Also, Mbappe was among the top stars at the opening game against Toulouse, but was not among three goal scorers.
His mate striker, Radamel Falcao, however, was, confirmed to be in a very good shape and should be have the capability of netting some goals in Dijon’s defensive line to the max this Sunday.
