Dijon vs Lyon
France – Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday 3rd February 2021
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Gaston Gerard.

Dijon of course will be the big outsiders to win this game as they are in 19th place and have won just 3 points from their last 15 on offer.

Last weekend Dijon fell to their 11th defeat of the season but they were facing league leaders Lille and the game only finished 1-0. Dijon have conceded 31 goals so far which given their position isn’t actually too bad and they have, in general, kept scores down even when they have lost.

Lyon have been great this season just like they were in the 2000s decade when they won 7 league titles. Now we are in January and they would be surprised to know that PSG are behind them.

Lyon are in 2nd place and 2 points behind Lille in a very exciting season in France. Last weekend Lyon beat Bordeaux 2-1 and come into this game having won their last two in a row.

There is bad news for Dijon because Lyon has the best away record in Ligue 1 where from a possible 33 points they have won 22. The club have only lost one game so far on the road and their last away game ended in an emphatic 5-0 victory over Saint Etienne.

Dijon vs Lyon: Head to Head

  • Earlier this season in the reverse fixture Lyon won 4-1.
  • From the last 7 meetings Dijon have just 1 win.
  • The last time Lyon played Dijon away from home they won 3-0.

Dijon vs Lyon: Prediction

Lyon should win and that would be the majority tip here for any follower. But we have to respect Dijon who have been poor this season but haven’t been getting hammered by big scores either.

Dijon need to fight themselves as if Nimes win in last place they would have the same points as Dijon. Dijon have shown some good qualities lately and they will try and defend very deep.

Lyon are around 1.30 (1/3) to win this and being away from home we don’t see much value in that, the best choice here seems to be to back Dijon on the handicap, and this will be our only choice for this game as it should be a main bet.

Dijon vs Lyon Betting Tips:

  • Handicap: Dijon to beat Lyon with a +2 goal start at 1.72 (8/11).
