PSG won’t want a repeat of their last result here following a 1-2 Champions League loss in their previous game against Manchester United.
In that match, Paris Saint-Germain had 60% possession and 14 shots on goal with 5 on target. For their opponents, Manchester United had 14 attempts on goal with 6 on target. Bruno Fernandes (23'), Anthony Martial (55' Own goal) and Marcus Rashford (87') scored for Manchester United.
Their more recent scorelines reveal that there has been much resilience in the Paris Saint-Germain defence. Les Rouge-et-Bleu have given the opposition little, with the total number of goals that have gone in at their end during their last six outings standing at 3. That sort of trend won’t necessarily be sustained into this game, however.
Going into this contest, Paris Saint-Germain haven't been defeated in their previous 2 league matches at home.
In the game prior to this, Dijon drew 1-1 in the Ligue 1 tie with Rennes.
In that match, Dijon had 39% possession and 12 attempts at goal with 4 of them on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Dijon was Mama Baldé (53'). Stade Rennais FC got 12 attempts at goal with 3 of them on target. Martin Terrier (24') scored for Rennes.
The strike force from Dijon have suffered from a shortage of goals over their previous six games, recording the disappointing return of just 4. In those matches, Dijon have also seen the collective goal aggregate of opposing teams equal 13.
Ahead of this meeting, Dijon haven’t won away from home in the past 13 league matches. They clearly need to do something about it.

Team News: PSG
Mauro Icardi (Medial Collateral Ligament Knee Injury), Leandro Paredes (Knock), Marco Verratti (Biceps femoris muscle injury) and Juan Bernat (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) will not be able to play for PSG manager Thomas Tuchel. The players ineligible for this match because of suspension are Layvin Kurzawa and Ángel Di María.
Team News: Dijon
With a fully injury-free squad ready to go, Dijon manager Stéphane Jobard has zero fitness worries to speak of coming into this match.
In our opinion, PSG will most probably be able to create a good number of chances & successful shots on target.
Conversely, Dijon will be up against it finding the net themselves although we do reckon that they could well end up managing to get on the scoresheet as well here.
We can therefore see a controlled 3-1 margin for PSG come full-time.
