PSG are the guests at Stade Gaston Gérard on Saturday for the Ligue 1 game with home side Dijon.
Full predictions, stats & game poll for the Dijon v PSG match are shown here - as well as the best betting odds.
Dijon won’t want a repeat of their last result here following a 2-1 Ligue 1 loss in their previous game against RC Lens.
In that game, Dijon had 45% possession and 12 shots on goal with 4 of them on target. The only player to score for Dijon was Ngonda Muzinga (61'). For their opponents, RC Lens had 11 attempts on goal with 4 of them on target. Seko Fofana (30') and Simon Banza (64') scored for RC Lens.
Dijon have really struggled up front in more recent games. Their goals record stands at just 3 against opponents over the course of their last six fixtures. In those games, Dijon have also seen the tally of goals against them total 11.
Their previous form shows that Dijon:
- have not emerged victorious against Paris Saint-Germain in their previous 2 league games.
- are without a win at home for the past 13 league matches. It's getting extremely desperate.
Since suffering a loss in their previous game against Monaco in Ligue 1 competition, PSG and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.
In that match, Paris Saint-Germain had 75% possession and 9 attempts on goal with 1 on target. On the other side, AS Monaco FC had 5 attempts at goal with 3 of them on target. Sofiane Diop (6') and Guillermo Maripán (51') scored for Monaco.
A series of hard-working performances from the Paris Saint-Germain defence has seen the number of goals they’ve conceded standing at 4 from their previous 6 clashes combined. During the same period, the number of goals that they have scored themselves is 12. Such a pattern isn’t assured to follow through into this next game, however.
Head to head
A review of their most recent head-to-head meetings stretching back to 12/03/2019 shows us that Dijon have won 1 of these & PSG 5, with the number of drawn results being 0.

The previous league clash featuring the two was Ligue 1 match day 8 on 24/10/2020 which finished with the scoreline of Paris Saint-Germain 4-0 Dijon.
That day, Paris Saint-Germain managed 55% possession and 20 shots at goal with 9 on target. Goals were scored by Moise Kean (3', 23') and Kylian Mbappé (82', 87').

Team News: Dijon
Dijon boss David Linarès will be grateful not to have any fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this clash with a fully healthy squad available for selection.
Team News: PSG
PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino has multiple availability issues to deal with. Pablo Sarabia (Foot Injury), Ángel Di María (Thigh Problems), Neymar (Adductor problems) and Juan Bernat (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) will not be playing here.
In this match, Dijon certainly have the ability to score a goal against this PSG side, however a single goal likely won’t be enough to give them the result that they want.
We are therefore anticipating a narrow 1-2 advantage for PSG at the end of the 90 minutes. Could easily go either way, this.
