Paris Saint-Germain vs Dijon FCO Preview

Paris Saint-Germain vs Dijon FCO

Competition – France Ligue 1

Stadium – Parc des Princes

Date: 17th January 2018

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

PSG are in a good position to wrestle back the Ligue 1 title they lost to AS Monaco last season and this game gives them another chance to increase their points gap on the chasing pack.

They have lost only once to Dijon in their last seven meetings and the visitors who are down in mid table look likely to be their next victims as they continue to build a winning run.

These sides met for the first time this season in October and PSG had to survive a major scare to win the game 1-2 thanks to a pair of Thomas Meunier goals in the 70th minute and in added time.

That was a tougher test than many expected Dijon to give the star-studded PSG and when Dijon equalized with 3 minutes of regular time remaining, everyone expected the game to end in a draw and in truth that would have been the fairer result.

PSG are the team with the best form heading into this game as they have won their last six competitive games.

Dijon meanwhile are not on the best run of form with 3 losses, 2 wins and a draw in their last 6.

They will still look to put on a stubborn resistance in this game and hopefully get the point their first leg performance deserved.

Neymar is still struggling with a rib injury and this should be good news for Dijon as PSG tend to struggle creatively when the Brazilian is not playing.

Cavani remains a serious goal threat and the Uruguayan will be looking for his 20th goal of the season when he takes to the pitch for this match.
