Lyon snatched all three points from Dijon in a 1-0 victory on Wednesday, at Stade Gaston Gerard. Dijon FCO were looking forward to meeting again after losing their last game 1-0 to Lille OSC.

As the table looks today, Dijon FCO are in 19th place on the table and has 15 points while Olympique Lyonnais sit in 2nd with 49 points after 23 matches.

It was an impressive opening from Olympique Lyonnais, beginning with a goal from Lucas Paqueta in the 22nd minute, to take a 1-0 lead into half time. With both teams struggling to produce anything meaningful in the second half though, the game ended 1-0.

For Dijon FCO Bersant Celina, Mama Balde, Mounir Chouiar, Jordan Marie and Sacha Boey came on for Pape Diop, Moussa Konate, Frederic Sammaritano, Wesley Lautoa and Eric Ebimbe, while Lyon replaced Maxwel Cornet, Bruno Guimaraes, Karl Toko Ekambi and Houssem Aouar for Mattia De Sciglio, Thiago Mendes, Islam Slimani and Maxence Caqueret.

The referee booked Mounir Chouiar and Senou Coulibaly for Dijon FCO.
