Dijon vs Lyon
France – Ligue 1
Date: Friday, 20th April 2018
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Gaston Gérard (Dijon).
Two Friday night games is a rarity in France and our second one will see Dijon take on Lyon in what should be an entertaining game.
Dijon are in 12th place and safe for this season which means they can enjoy the game. They got a very good point away to Nantes in their last match and lost just 1 game in the past month. At home Dijon won 30 of their 42 point total and winning at this stadium has saved their season. The club has won 9 times from 16 games losing just 4 times but their last game here did end in defeat when they lost 3-1 to Marseille.
Lyon have been the best team in France on recent form with 5 wins in a row and they are scoring many goals too. 8 goals in their last two games and the club are really on fire. They are just 4 points from second placed Monaco but their real option is to at least finish in the top 3 for a Champions League place and Marseille has the same points as them in 4th so every game counts.
Lyon’s away form is only second to PSG, and they won 34 points on the road from a possible 51. Lyon has lost 4 games all season away and are coming on the back of a 4 match unbeaten streak.
Dijon vs Lyon: Head to Head
- Lyon has scored 7 goals against Dijon in the last 2 meetings
- The last time the teams played here Dijon won 4-2
- In the 5 times that the teams played each other there is a 100% success rate for over 2.5 goals and a 80% win rate for over 3.5 goals
Dijon vs Lyon: Prediction
This fixture screams goals and Dijon are not goal shy, but it is Lyon who are scoring all the goals lately. Since being dumped out of the Europa League the side seem to have found a new beginning and look great on the attack.
