Lyon - Dijon

PICK: Lyon 1st half AH -0,5 @1,92 PINNACLE 6/10

Match between 4th and 16th placed team in Ligue 1 will be played on Parc Olympique Lyonnais in suburb of Lyon and will start at 17:00.

Lyon is coming to match after relaxing win in Europa league and they are facing easier game at home on Thursday as they have big advantage. On the other hand they should not forget on Ligue 1 as Marseille and St. Etienne are climbing closer and right now, there is just 1 point difference between Lyon and both big rivals. It's true that Lyon has 2 matches less than OM and 1 less than St. Etienne, but they need to get points from those two matches that they will mean something. Valbuena and first goalkeeper Lopes are out, but that doesn't change the fact, that they are big favourites in this match and they should get all three points if they wants to continue with season calmly. They lost in Guingamp, some ugly things happened with coach, but looks that it's better now.

Dijon's success relies on three players in my opinion - midfielder Abeid and attackers Tavares and Diony. Abeid is injured and won't be in squad, while also Diony received a little knock and it's not sure if he will be able to play for 90 minutes. After Abeid, they will miss also other two important midfielders Sammaritano and Lees-Melou, which means that Dijon will look totally different today. They won last match against Caen in crazy snowy conditions, their goalkeeper was in fantastic form, but I think that they won't be able to hold Lyon.

OL is playing good when they are playing good from start of the game. If they complicates things in first half, they are hardly winning the matches. That's why I am taking nice odds on them, to get things done already in first half. They lost first match in Dijon (4-2) and it's time for revenge. They will take match seriously and I expect them to win.

HT: 1-1
