Olympique Lyonnais vs Dijon Prediction 28 August 2020

Tournament: French Ligue 1
Location: Park Olympique Lyonnais
Match date: 28.08.2020 at 20:00

The second round of Ligue 1 starts in Lyon, where the team of the same name will try to give a master class to the outsider Dijon. At the beginning of the season it's always interesting to see what the teams are like now and it is especially fair for the beginning like this. 

Lyon spent the whole August playing in the Champions League, where, to everyone's surprise, they reached the semi-finals through Juventus (1: 0, 1: 2) and Manchester City (3: 1). However, then the Weavers were defeated by the formidable Bavaria (0: 3), which is why they can now focus exclusively on internal affairs.

Over the past month, Dijon have played with varying success in friendly sparring with FC Paris (2: 0), Sochaux (0: 0), Metz (1: 2) and Lens (0: 1). And in the opening round of the championship, the Eagles were minimally outplayed by Angers 0: 1. As you can see, this club is destined to fight for survival again. A year earlier, they finished sixteenth, and before that - eighteenth.

Home stadium status and a higher level of skill are factors in Lyon's likely success. However, I do not think that the Weavers will defeat their opponent so easily. Still, the fatigue after a busy schedule in the Champions League did not go away from them. That is why it seems to us that the hosts are going to win, but they won't probably do it with a big goal difference.
