Dijon vs Lyon Soccer Prediction Today
Dijon will look to continue their good recent form and try to pull themselves out of the lower-part of the Ligue 1 (L1) table. Meanwhile, Lyon will aim to consolidate their push for a Champions League qualification place going into this round 34 game.
In nine previous meetings in all competitions, Dijon have returned a poor record against Lyon; standing at: W1, D2, L6 (13 goals scored/25 goals conceded). However, Lyon were held to a 3-3 draw by their hosts in the reverse fixture back in September.
After a good performance and a 1-0 win on the road against Toulouse in round 32, Dijon brought back a good point from their trip to Claudio Ranieri’s Nantes (2-1) last weekend. Currently stuck in 12th place ahead of this round, a win here would propel Olivier Dall’Oglio’s men into the top-half of the table.
Currently on an impressive run of five-straight wins in the league, Lyon are still sitting third in the standings, but only on goal difference. Currently with great momentum, Bruno Genesio’s team have scored at least two goals in their last four L1 fixtures against Marseille (2-3), Toulouse (2-0), Metz (0-5), and Amiens (3-0).
Players to watch:
Since Julio Tavares may be out for the next two weeks, Dijon will rely on their Korean midfielder Kwon Chang-hoon who has scored his team’s last three goals!
Lyon’s star man this season has been Nabil Fekir who has 16 goals and five assists in L1. The 24-year-old made his return from six weeks out with a knee injury last weekend.
Dijon have lost only one of their last 11 home L1 fixtures (W8, D2, L1), scoring at least one goal in each of them.
With 42 goals scored on the road, Lyon have the most potent away attack of any team in the league.
