After Lyon stunned Juventus and Manchester City in the UEFA Champions League, and outplayed the eventual champion Bayern Munich for the first half hour of their semifinal, Olympique Lyonnais now has to do the hard graft.

It has to find a way to get back into Europe. That charge starts today, as Lyon takes on Dijon in Ligue 1 action. This team will certainly look different once the transfer window closes, with Houssem Aouar and Moussa Dembele almost certainly going to be sold for big money.

But for now, they should play, and Lyon should win this contest.
