Lyon vs Dijon
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 6th April 2019
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade Olympique Lyonnais (Lyon).
Lyon will be the big odds on favourites to win this match as they are in 3rd place and playing the bottom side Dijon and will be at home.
Lyon’s dream is to catch up Lille in 2nd place and get the automatic Champions League qualification in the process. Form is and they come into this game unbeaten in their last 4 games. Their last match ended in a hard fought 1-0 win away against Rennes.
At home Lyon have been a pretty dominant team and have gained 33 points from a possible 45. Lyon have the 2nd best home record in the league and have won 10 games from their 15 played. They are almost averaging 2 goals a game at home.
Dijon are bottom of the league and they look like they will be relegated. They are currently 9 points adrift of safety and even though it is still mathematically possible to survive the bookmakers have them down as the favourites to go down. Dijon have lost their last 3 games in a row and away from home they have lost 10 of their 15 games played.

Lyon vs Dijon: Prediction
Lyon will win this game and even though there has been some shocks in Ligue 1 at this stage of the season with so much on the line for Lyon we can’t see them dropping points. We will back them but to win they are no value so we will back them on the handicap. We also fancy Memphis Depay to get on the score sheet and we will also back over 2.5 goals such is the success rate.
