Troyes and Dijon played out a goalless draw which lifts both teams slightly further clear of the Ligue 1 relegation zone.

Dijon had the better chances of a largely uneventful first half, with Mehdi Abeid failing to control Naim Sliti’s dangerous cross and defender Christophe Herelle denying Julio Tavares on the stroke of half-time.

The hosts took charge in the final half-hour, with Bryan Pele denied by Baptiste Reynet and Samuel Grandsir’s effort cleared off the line by forward Tavares, though Dijon could still have won it as Sliti hit the bar with goalkeeper Erwin Zelazny beaten.
