Lyon vs. Dijon Match Analysis and Prediction

Champions League semi-finalists Lyon kickoff their 2020-21 Ligue 1 campaign this weekend. The side takes on side Dijon at the Groupama Stadium. The match schedules for Friday with kickoff at 7 pm.

Dijon will be heading for their second game of the season after a disappointing setback against Angers. Lyon received two weeks rest following their exit from the Champions League at the hands of Bayern Munich.

Lyon enjoyed their best 2019-20 season that saw the side reach the semi-finals of the Champions League for the first time. The side will be looking to continue with the form without any Champions League or Europa League this season.

The side finished off the season out of the top six in French top flight. There might be serious financial implications for the side, but Rudi Garcia looks set to start the side on a high note.

The future of Memphis Depay remains uncertain with a link to Barcelona under new manager Koeman. Another rising star who caught the attention of European clubs as Hassam Auoar with his future still uncertain.

Dijon narrowly survived relegation last season and looks set to maintain their position in French top flight. Stephen Jobard looked keen to kick start his managerial role with a home win against Angers. However, he will be bagging on the lack of training for the side to pull off a win.

Lyon Team News

Despite playing with a back three for back to back Champions League games against Juventus, Bayern Munich, and Man City, we expect a back four. It will see Moussa Dembele join the starting XI with Depay on the flanks. Rafael sets to miss out on the fixture after picking a red card during the Coupe de la France.

Dijon Team News

We expect several changes by Jobard that could see the recall of Romain Amalfitano. Pape Cheikh Diop will not feature after a loan move from the home side.
