Reason For Lyon vs Dijon Predictions

  • Dijon have lost seven of their last ten Ligue 1 away games, failing to score on seven occasions.
  • Dijon scored just seven goals in 14 Ligue 1 road trips last season.
  • Four of Lyon’s five home victories last season were to nil.
  • Dijon conceded exactly two goals in six of their 14 away games last term.

Lyon shift attentions back to Ligue 1

Just over a week ago Lyon found themselves in Portugal contesting a Champions League semi-final against the dominant Bayern Munich, but with that 3-0 thumping fresh in their memories their attentions must now turn back to domestic action as they get their Ligue 1 campaign underway.

The hosts suffered a disappointing league campaign last season as the majority of their focus was taken up by their Champions League success. Eventually they finished 7th in the table after a coronavirus enforced abandonment of Ligue 1, meaning they miss out on European football despite their run to the semi-finals.

While this is certainly not ideal, what it will do is allow Les Gones to focus solely on returning to Europe’s premier competition. Another 7th place finish is unlikely, especially with the likes of Memphis Depay, Moussa Dembele, Houssem Aouar and Maxence Caqueret still in their ranks.

Visitors struggle in season opener

Last season’s abandonment suited Dijon just fine as they avoided the looming possibility of a relegation battle, instead settling for a 16th place finish after collecting a disappointing 30 points from 28 games.

Unsurprisingly, the new season hasn’t started particularly well either. They lost 1-0 at home to Angers in their opener, and a trip to the Groupama Stadium is unlikely to yield more positive results.

Dijon haunted by away day woes

Les Hiboux haven’t won an away game in Ligue 1 since September 2019, losing seven of their ten attempts since. They face a Lyon side that have won four of their last eight league home games, losing twice.

It’s worth noting that three of these victories have yielded clean sheets for Les Gones, and they should find more success at the back against Dijon. The visitors have failed to score in seven of their last ten on the road and scored just seven goals in 14 Ligue 1 road trips last season. For this reason, a bet of Lyon to win to nil looks a good value offering.

Dijon conceded exactly two goals in six of their 14 away days last term, while Lyon won by a 2-0 scoreline in two of their final eight home games. That makes a 2-0 correct score prediction another option worth considering.
