Dijon vs PSG Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


PSG are expected to be too strong for relegation threatened Dijon when they visit the Stade Gaston-Gerard for a French Ligue 1 fixture on Tuesday. The champions are on a five-match winning and should keep a clean sheet in a dominant win at odds of 2.05.

Dijon FCO Form & Team News


Dijon are having a poor campaign this season and currently occupy the final relegation playoff place. They have lost five of their last six Ligue 1 matches and are priced at odds of 11.00 to beat the champions on Tuesday.

Les Rouges played out a 1-1 draw at home against Reims last time out in Ligue 1. They fell behind early in the first half but struck back on 13 minutes through Naim Sliti.

Dijon have struggled in attack lately having failed to score in four of their last five matches across all competitions. Striker Julio Tavares has scored just three goals this season and has failed to find the net in his last 10 matches.

Paris Saint-Germain FC Form & Team News


PSG will undoubtedly be hurting from their UEFA Champions League exit after suffering a 3-1 defeat at home to Manchester United. They are priced at 1.20 to win on Tuesday while a draw is set at odds of 7.00.

The champions remain the team to beat in Ligue 1 as they march towards a dominant title defence. Thomas Tuchel's men have won their last five Ligue 1 matches, keeping three clean sheets in that run.

Edinson Cavani made his return from injury in the defeat to Manchester United and could be given a run out on Tuesday. The Uruguayan striker should be joined in attack by Kylian Mbappe who has scored 12 goals in his last 10 Ligue 1 matches.

Dijon vs PSG Head-to-Head


PSG have claimed eight wins and suffered just one defeat in nine previous matches against Dijon. The Parisians ran out 3-0 winners in a Coupe de France fixture at the Parc des Princes with Angel Di Maria netting a brace and Thomas Meunier grabbing the third.

Dijon vs PSG Match Up


Dijon have found things difficult in attack lately having failed to score in four of their last five Ligue 1 matches. Striker Tavares is currently on a 10-match scoreless run in Ligue 1 and is unlikely to get any joy against the champions.

Mbappe has been the standout player for PSG lately with 12 goals in his last 10 Ligue 1 matches. The Frenchman will have support from the returning Cavani and both men should have too much quality for the hosts.
