Dijon are aiming to get back to winning ways in Ligue 1 when they host Lyon at the Stade Gaston-Gerard on Wednesday evening. Dijon have failed to deliver a single shot on target against Reims on Saturday, but they still managed to secure a nil-nil draw. Lyon, on the other hand, won 4-2 at home against Marseille thanks to a brace from Bertrand Traore and two other goals from Houssem Aouar and Nabil Fekir.

Betting Tips for the game
Dijon started the new Ligue 1 season in an excellent manner, winning their opening three league fixtures while conceding just one goal. However, they have lost their focus since the beginning of September and they are now on a three-game winless streak. Their recent home form hasn’t been that good as Dijon have lost four of their last seven league fixtures.
Meanwhile, Lyon have finally found some fluency of late and head into this tie in great mood. They managed a shocking 1-2 away win at Manchester City in the Champions League last week and followed this up with a 4-2 home win against Marseille in Ligue 1 on Sunday. This leaves Lyon in 6th position in the standings tied on 10 points with their Wednesday’s opponents.
Lyon looked amazing over the past few weeks and we expect them to continue this run and to grab another victory here. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate Lyon to win at odds 1.53.
