Lyon vs Dijon – Ligue 1- Lyon, 11th placed in the table, hosts Dijon, 17th placed, in a second round match of the Ligue 1.
Lyon vs Dijon –Lyon – Lyon squad finished last season in a disappointing 7th place after the league’s cancellation due to the pandemic.
The team had been contrasting good performances with very bad results and performances, showing a big exhibitional inconsistency.
However, when the Champions League resumed (about 5 months later), the squad from Lyon knocked out two of the big favorites in the competition, Juventus and Manchester City, falling only at the feet of the eventual champions Bayern Munich.
Due to the fact that the team had been playing in the knockout stages of the Champions League, Lyon will only start their french league campaign now, with great motivational rates and with no unavailable players.
In the last season, Dijon focused in keeping themselves above the relegation line and for this new season i believe the goal will be the same.
In the opening round, Dijon lost at home against the not so great side of Angers, where despite having more dominance in terms of ball possession, the team always had a hard time in creating goal chances due to the lack of creativity of their midfield.
Amalfitano is a player that can bring more creativity to Dijon’s attack, but in this match against a powerfull opponent, the strategy may pass by keeping the defensive cohesion and therefore, maintain the midfield solidity.
The team comes to matchday 2 with no players unavailable.
Lyon debuts in the french league in this game, well motivated by their good performance in the Champions League.
The talent of players like Depay, Moussa Dembele and Aouar is undeniable, and the team already showed that in a good day it’s a very hard side to beat.
