PSG vs Dijon Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


PSG are on a five-match winning run and have also won seven of their previous eight matches against Dijon. Having kept clean sheets in five of their last six matches, the hosts look good value for a win to nil in their Coupe de France clash at 1.73. 

Paris Saint-Germain FC Form & Team News


PSG continue to dominate in France having won their last five matches across all competitions, keeping four clean sheets in that run. The Parisians reached the quarter finals of the Coupe de France after seeing off lower league team Villefranche 3-0 in extra time.

The champions are coming off another 3-0 victory over Nimes in Ligue 1 on Saturday. Kylian Mbappe continued his fine form with a second half brace for Thomas Tuchel's team after Christopher Nkunku had struck the opener in the first period.

Mbappe continues to impress for PSG in the absence of Neymar and Edinson Cavani, who are still sidelined with injury. The 20-year-old has scored 27 goals across all competitions this season.

Dijon FCO Form & Team News 


Dijon are one of the worst teams in the French Ligue 1 this season as they are currently deep in relegation trouble. They have lost four of their last five matches across all competitions. Their only win in that run was a 3-0 victory over National 2 team Croix Football in the previous round of the Coupe de France.

Les Rouges were beaten 1-0 at home by Saint-Etienne in Ligue 1 on Saturday. It was a poor attacking display from Antoine Koumbouare's team as they could only muster just two efforts on target in 90 minutes.

Goals have been a problem for Dijon who have failed to find the net in their last two matches. Striker Julio Tavares has featured in all but two matches this season but only has three goals to his name. 

PSG vs Dijon Head-to-Head 


PSG have never lost to Dijon in eight previous meetings, claiming seven wins and one draw. They have kept four clean sheets in that run including an 8-0 victory in a Ligue 1 fixture in the 2017-18 season.

PSG vs Dijon Match Up 


Mbappe will be the one to watch for PSG on Tuesday having scored 27 goals across all competitions. Thee Frenchman scored one of the goals in the 8-0 victory in the 2017-18 season and has scored 10 goals in his last 10 matches.

Dijon have one of the worst attacks in the league and have failed to score in their last two matches.
