Dijon vs PSG
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 15 December 2018
Kick-Off at 16:00 UK / 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade Gaston-Gerard (Dijon).
PSG could not maintain the perfect record in Ligue 1 as opening 14 wins were followed by back-to-back draws in past two rounds. They are still miles away from the rest of the field in the competition standings 13 points adrift of main chasers Lille with a game in hand on them. The reigning champions will be hoping to return to winning ways in domestic affairs on Saturday afternoon when they travel to Gaston-Gerard to play Dijon.
Les Parisiens will come into the match in high spirits following a confident 1-4 victory over Red Star Belgrade on Tuesday evening. The victory allowed them to win Group C ahead of Liverpool and Napoli and qualify for the last 16 round of the Champions League. The main objective has been fulfilled and Thomas Tuchel’s stars can now certainly feel much more confident as they return to domestic affairs.
Dijon vs PSG: Head-to-head
Dijon fans can certainly still remember the painful 8-0 loss they suffered when they last played PSG in January at Parc Des Princes.
Les Parisiens won seven of eight head to head games against Les Rouges over the course of history.
Three or more goals were seen in each of last five head to head games between the two teams.
Dijon vs PSG: Prediction
Dijon have been playing hot and cold ever since the season began. They sit 16th at the moment being two points clear off the red zone, but Olivier Dall’Oglio and his men might face hard times saving the top flight status at the end of the campaign.
Unlike PSG, Les Rouges were in action last weekend when they fell 2-0 to Rennes away at Roazhon Park to end a three-game unbeaten run. They took four points from last two home matches, but also fell 0-4 to the likes of Nimes at Gaston-Gerard previously.
PSG are just enormous favourites against any other team in the league, especially against relegation strugglers. They will be motivated to return to the winning ways after two consecutive draws in Ligue 1 and we have to expect a one-way street all the way here.
