Dijon vs PSG
France Ligue 1
Date: Friday, 1st November 2019
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Stade Gaston Gerard.
Because PSG will be playing in the Champions League the following week the round of Ligue 1 fixtures will kick off with their game against Dijon on Friday evening.
PSG will be the massive odds on favourites to win this game given their dominance and even though they have started the season with 2 defeats from 11 games they are in 1st place and already have an 8-point advantage to 2nd placed Nantes. The league as far as the title goes already looks like it will be PSG’s again.
The champions have struggled with injuries at different times to their famous front three attackers but Kylian Mbappe is fit and scoring goal for fun and Mauro Icardi was an inspired signing from coach Thomas Tuchel. Last weekend both of these players scored 2 goals each as PSG swept aside Marseille 4-0 in Paris.
PSG have the best away record in the league with 12 points gained from a possible 15 and have won 4 games in a row coming into this match. So, what chances do Dijon have? Currently they are in bottom place with 9 points. Last weekend they lost 2-0 to Brest and this ended a 3-game unbeaten streak. It is clear that the club even if they have improved lately are going to struggle on the road.
At home Dijon has the worst record in the league where they have won just one game all season. Maybe the good news is that the victory was in their last game at home when they beat Strasbourg 1-0.

Dijon v PSG: Prediction
Dijon have been playing better football lately, but against PSG they will have to be ultra-cautious. As far as Dijon will go, they have to understand that getting a win playing toe to toe football with PSG won’t work, this game has to be about damage limitation, so there goal difference doesn’t get more affected.
We can’t see past PSG to win this game, at the same time their winning odds offer zero value to most punters and so we have picked out some better solutions below. Mbappe has scored 5 goals in his last two games and has scored 4 goals against Dijon in the last 3 league games, he will be our main bet to score again in this encounter.
