Olympique Lyonnais host Dijon in a game from the 10th round of the French Ligue 1
Olympique Lyonnais host Dijon in a game from the 10th round of the French Ligue 1. Let’s examine this fixture at the Groupama Stadium in our soccer matches tomorrow.
For Olympique Lyonnais this is going to be a first game since the club decided to sack the manager Sylvinho. The Brazilian tactician turned out to be an unsuccessful experiment for Les Gones. Right now Lyonnais are 14th in the league with just 9 points won, which is totally unacceptable. In their last five games they are without a win in the Ligue 1, which explains why Sylvinho was shown the door.
Olympique Marseille’s former coach Rudi Garcia is Lyonnais’ new manager. Against Dijon the experienced tactician will make his debut for his new club.
In the previous round Olympique Lyonnais visited Saint-Etienne and suffered a 0-1 defeat. Sylvinho was trying different things since the beginning of the season, but nothing seemed to work. Now Rudi Garcia will have the task to get the club back on its feet.
Dijon on the other hand are in trouble at the moment. They are 19th in the league with just 8 points, being in the relegation zone of the Ligue 1. But they are on the rise, because they won their last two games in the league against Reims and Strasbourg.
Before the international break Dijon hosted Strasbourg and enjoyed a 1-0 win at the Stade Gaston-Gerard. The English striker Stephy Mavididi scored the only goal in the game in the 38th minute. For Mavididi, who is a former Juventus player, it was his first goal for the season.
That’s our soccer matches tomorrow for the Ligue 1 fixture between Olympique Lyonnais and Dijon at the Groupama Stadium. Les Gones’ fans are impatient to follow Rudi Garcia’s debut as a manager. Is it going to be successful?
