Lyon vs Dijon prediction and match preview

Lyon enjoyed an impressive Champions League run in the 2019-20 season which saw them eliminate Juventus and Man City in the Round of 16 and quarter-finals respectively, before losing to eventual champions Bayern Munich in the semi-final. Lyon have had just over a week to recover following their gruelling UCL campaign but will hope to start the new season on a high.

The hosts will be unable to call on the services of right-back Rafael against Dijon. The defender picked up a red card in the French Cup final and is suspended for their opening fixture of the new season. Tinotenda Kadewere will also miss the clash due to injury.

Stephane Jobard's Dijon had, in fact, faced Angers in their opening game of the Ligue 1 2020-21 season but suffered a 1-0 defeat against Stephane Moulin's men last weekend. Dijon will be hoping to get their first points of the new season when they face Lyon. The visitors have Mama Balde, Senou Coulibaly, and Pape Cheikh on the injury list while Julio Tavares remains a doubt for the clash against Lyon. Our Lyon vs Dijon prediction is that Lyon will win the game 2-0 due to their superior attack, boasting the likes of Moussa Dembele and Memphis Depay in the frontline.
