Lille take on the visitors Dijon in the round 2 of French Ligue 1. The game takes place at Stade Pierre-Mauroy on Saturday, August 20th.
Lille have another disappointing start of the season. Les Dogues sensationally lost Europa League matchup to Azeri side Gabala, 1-1, 0-1 and got eliminated from the completion at early qualifying round. The first match of Ligue 1 ended with 2-3 defeats with third goal conceded on 88th minute of the match. Lille had unquestionable advantage in these matches and they should feel unlucky to have such poor start. Lille show solid results at home this year, taking six wins and four draws in 10 home matches since the end of January.

Dijon only got promoted from Ligue 2 last season. The team showed excellent results in second French league, taking second place with 70 points and 62-36 goal difference. The team had solid chances to win Ligue 2 but they gave up battling in the very end and lost three last matches of previous season. Dijon also lost their first match of the season, suffering 0-1 defeat against Nantes so the team still need time to adjust to top level football.
Lille and Dijon met last time in season 2011/12 when both matches were won by today’s hosts with the same score, 2-0. Lille show their best football at home and they should try to please their fans with first successful results in the season.
Prediction for the match: Lille to win.
