After their valiant Champions League campaign was ended by eventual winners Bayern Munich on August 19, Lyon make their Ligue 1 return this Friday. The season-opener for Rudi Garcia's men is a home clash against Dijon, who finished 16th last term but have begun the new season with a 1-0 home loss to Angers.

Can they come away with all three points here against OL? Or will their hosts kick off the new 2020-21 season with victory? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Lyon vs Dijon Betting Tips

It's fair to say Lyon exceeded all expectations placed on them over the past few weeks. Despite a disappointing penalty shootout defeat to PSG in their Coupe de la Ligue Final on July 31, they had bigger proverbial fish to fry. They stunned Serie A champions Juventus and English giants Manchester City in the Champions League this month.

So although they were second best against Bayern, they can take solace knowing Hansi Flick's side are Europe's best side. They proved as much against Paris Saint-Germain last Sunday in an intriguing Champions League Final, and the onus is on Lyon to start the new season well.

It'll be interesting to see who starts and who doesn't feature here, after constant speculation linking Houssem Aouar with a big-money move this summer.

Jeff Reine-Adelaide, a £25m signing himself twelve months ago, appears a suitable replacement for his compatriot's midfield presence. Memphis Depay will play with added motivation after an ineffective few UCL displays, while Maxwell Cornet and teenage wonderkid Rayan Cherki are players to watch.

Experienced centre-back Wesley Lautoa was Dijon's best performer on a busy evening against Angers last week. Having made seven clearances, four interceptions and tackles with a block and three aerial duels won, he's likely to be called upon heavily here too.

Lyon vs Dijon Correct Score Predictions

In nine H2H meetings, Dijon have won just twice against Lyon. I'd be surprised if they managed to secure a result away from home, against a side still buoyant after their defiant displays earlier this month.
