It was at the Gaston-Gérard stadium that Dijon faced the VAFC, in the match counting for the 10th Ligue 2 day. The confrontation saw the VAFC win 1 to 0. To counter Garande’s balanced 4-2-3-1, with Le Bihan at the forefront, Guégan aligned his Valenciennes team in 3-5-2 rather offensive.
Picouleau scored in the 46th the only goal of this meeting, allowing his team to achieve victory.
This game was tense, with several caveats. Ayité received a yellow card, just like Benzia, Hamache, Haouari, Ouattara and Scheidler.
Thanks to this victory, the VAFC gains 4 places and therefore takes the 12th place in the standings, ahead of Caen. This defeat brings down Dijon in 16th post, behind Grenoble.
