No miracle for the DFCO, which is down 3-0 away to Monaco, Sunday April 11, 2021. The “Reds” had held the shock at half-time (0-0), before giving in at the start of the second period against Jovetic, on a penalty from Ben Yedder repulsed by Allagbé. Ben Yedder who drives home the point after an error in raising the defense. The French international even offers himself a double, on a penalty, at the end of the match. If Dijon is not yet mathematically relegated, Ligue 2 is approaching with this new setback for the 32nd day of Ligue 1.
“There is better”
Despite the score, the DFCO delivered a convincing performance in the first half. “There is better”, admits striker Aboubakar Kamara. “We accept the superiority of Monaco. We are in a very negative spiral, doubt has set in”, indicates his side the Dijon coach, David Linarès. A coach disappointed to have seen his team ease off after the second goal conceded.
A record equaled
With this defeat, the twelfth in a row, DFCO equaled a record dating from 1933-34 : the greatest number of consecutive defeats in the league, now co-owned with CA Paris.
