Lyon play their first match of the 2020-21 Ligue 1 season as they host Dijon at Groupama Stadium on Friday. Lyon have been taking on the best teams in Europe and should have too much class and confidence for a depleted Dijon.

Olympique Lyon Form


Olympique Lyon were 7th when the Ligue 1 season was called off and won’t be paying European football this season. Manager Rudi Garcia will have plenty of time to work on the training pitch, anything outside a top three finish will be a big failure.

Lyon took PSG all the way in the French League Cup final, the match ending 0-0 before losing the penalty shootout. They lost 2-1 against Juventus in the Champions League round of 16 second leg but advanced on away goals.

The French club were given little hope against Man City in the quarter-finals but produced a memorable 3-1 win. Maxwel Cornet opened the scoring with substitute Moussa Dembele bagging a brace. 

The semi-final against Bayern Munich was a step too far. Karl Toko Ekambi hit the woodwork early on but it was a deserved defeat, Lyon having 34% possession and 9-19 shots.

Olympique Lyon Team News


Rudi Garcia is missing suspended right back Rafael and striker Tino Kadewere is in Zimbabwe dealing with a family matter.

Striker Moussa Dembélé should be given a start after falling out of the starting side in the Champions League.

Dijon Form


Dijon were 16th in Ligue 1 when the season was cancelled, just three points above the relegation zone. Stéphane Jobard’s side lost 4-0 at PSG before a 2-1 home win against Toulouse in their final match.

The Owls got the new season started with a 1-0 home defeat against Angers. Jordan Marié hit the woodwork but they were ineffective in attack with one shot on target.

Dijon have to do better on the road after losing 20 of their last 25 away matches in Ligue 1.
