The home side have hit a wall in terms of results and have not won a game in one month. At the weekend they drew 0-0 away to Reims which was a decent result but before that they lost back to back games to Angers and Caen. At their home they have lost their last two games but because of their good start they are still in 7th place and have 10 points.

Lyon have had a good few weeks which included beating Manchester City in the Champions League and then winning an important match against Marseille which ended 4-2 to them. They are getting back on track in the league after starting slow and now have one defeat in their last 4 games. It seems that with the fitness of Nabil Fekir the club have grown in confidence around their star player.

Lyon will be looking for their first away win of the season after their last 2 games ended in defeat to Reims and a draw to Caen.

Dijon vs Lyon: Prediction

This game will be all about goals, it is a fact of history between the two teams that we cannot ignore. Lyon are full of goals at the moment and it is only a matter of time before they win a game away. They are looking like the side that pushed for the title last season and will become stronger and stronger.

Dijon look quite weak but they have the chance to score and they usually perform well against Lyon. So instead of picking a winner we have looked into the goals market for this encounter.

Dijon vs Lyon: Bet Tips

  • Both teams to score at 1.66 (4/6)
  • Over 3.5 goals at 2.38 (11/8)
  • Lyon to score 2 + goals at 1.50 (1/2).
