Lyon vs Dijon Prediction and Betting Preview 28 Aug 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 4-1
Lyon vs Dijon PredictionHaving taken the whole of Europe by storm last time out, Lyon will be kicking off the new campaign with a home game against struggling side Dijon in their opening French Ligue 1 fixture at the Groupama Stadium. Surely, Les Gones will set their sights on getting their season off to a flyer with a win.
Match status: 2020/21 Ligue 1 - Matchweek 2
Kick-off:
Venue: Parc Olympique Lyonnais (Lyon)
Last term’s domestic campaign is one Lyon will be desperate to put behind them as soon as possible. Failing to get their wits about them, Rudi Garcia’s men remained within midtable obscurity for large portions of the season, struggling to breach the top-half of the standings.

Unfortunately, their lofty ambitions of challenging PSG for the league title gave way for considerable turmoil in the camp. Finishing seventh on the log, Les Gones will be kicking themselves for having their campaign pan out in such terrible fashion.

With a new season underway, Lyon will be looking to pick from where they left off in the Champions League with a spirited performance against Dijon on Friday night. Should everything go according to plan, the hosts should be celebrating victory come fulltime.

Lyon vs Dijon Team News

Following their struggles in the 2019/2020 Ligue 1 season, fans were quick to throw the gauntlet down on head coach Rudi Garcia. The French gaffer must have spent the entire lockdown period, plotting a potential resurgence for his floundering Lyon side.

Impressively, Lyon returned from the break firing on all cylinders. Taking to the pitch for a CL Round-of-16 date with Italian champions Juventus, Les Gones were expected to be comfortably beaten. Talk about surprises; the Kids treated us to some top-drawer stuff in Lisbon.

Taking us aback with their display, they ensured the Bianconeri were sent crashing out of the tournament on away goals after a thrilling 2-2 aggregate score-line. As if that wasn’t enough upset already, Lyon went on to hammer Manchester City 3-1 in the quarterfinals of the competition.

Even though they were eventually defeated by free-scoring and eventual European champions Bayern Munich, Garcia’s charges can be proud of their scintillating CL run. With nobody giving them a chance, the Kids held their heads down, putting on some really good show.

However, that fairytale is finally gone and the reality of domestic football has now dawned on the boys from the Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes province. Due to their late Champions League commitments, Les Gones were handed a week-off to blow off steam to return this weekend.

Gearing up for a mouth-watering clash against minnows Dijon this weekend, Lyon will set their sights on grabbing on all three points against a side that escaped relegation by the slightest of margins last season. If all the players hit top-gear, this should be a stroll in the park for the home side.
Dijon were in action against Angers last time out, playing out a drab game that ended in a narrow 1-0 defeat. Having been on the backfoot throughout the course of the game, Angers’ Traore’s strike separated both sides at fulltime as Les Hiboux headed home empty-handed.

Set to be another season of relegation struggle, Dijon will be eager to get their first points of the campaign soon enough to get themselves up and running. With pressure on the shoulders of Jobard, the gaffer will look to keep his guys focused here to grab a positive result.
