Dijon started their road in the French top flight division with a 0–1 loss to FC Nantes in their opening game on Aug. 13 before succumbing to another 0–1 defeat in Week 2, this time in the hands of Europa League qualifiers Lille OSC on the road at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy last Saturday. Dijon have been promoted to Ligue 1 by finishing as runners-up to AS Nancy in the Ligue 2 last season, where they earned solid 70 points in 38 games. Unfortunately Dijon are currently struggling to find form in the French top-flight league.

Lyon have won two opening games of the season with a 5–0 goal difference, while French striker Alexandre Lacazette scored all 5 goals. As for team news: defenders Jeremy Monel and Christophe Jallet are both sidelined, as is striker Rachid Ghezzal.
