Lyon vs Dijon Match Preview and Team News

Maxwel Cornet of Lyon fc


Lyon has high ambitions in Ligue 1 and wants to challenge the title. They played great in the Champions League, where they reached semi-finals despite the odds. However, the hosts had an unsuccessful domestic campaign last season as they finished at 7th place. Lyon has a lot of young players who play attractive football with a lot of goals. Karl Toko Ekambi will get the opportunity to show why he was brought in as an excellent signing for the future. Midfielder Houssem Aouar has found the right role in the team, and it isn’t easy to take the ball away from this guy. Memphis Depay is the best player in the home side, he has excellent dribbles, his greatest strength is speed, and this guy is unstoppable. Maxwell  Cornet took place in the starting lineup, and many teams are interested in him. Rudi Garcia leads this team very well, he has a positive energy that drives the team, and the fans love him. Youssouf Kone is injured.


Dijon has a goal to survive in Ligue 1 this season. Several players left the club. They finished 16th last season and had many troubles with efficiency. The visitors played a lot of friendly matches and are not in perfect shape. In the first round, they lost 0:1 at home against Angers, who should be their rivals in the relegation battle. Bruno Ecuele Manga is an experienced defender who plays well. Eric Dina is in great shape, and he has a precise shot. This youngster plays equally in both directions, he is an exciting player and is considered as the future of French football. Didier Ndong found the right role in the team, he moves great in the middle of the field, and it isn’t easy to take the ball away from this guy. Aurelien Scheidler is the best player in the team, he moves excellent, and several clubs are interested in signing him. Stephane Jobard is an experienced coach at a club that expects to survive in the league. Benzia is injured and won’t be able to help his teammates in this match.
