Dijon Prediction – Can Dijon avoid heavy loss?

Despite returning to the more familiar surroundings of their Stade Gaston-Gérard, Friday night’s hosts, Dijon, look to have their work cut out if they’re to even contain PSG let alone take anything from this clash.

Dijon were dealt a 2-0 defeat away at Brest last time out in the French top flight but this ended a decent run of 4 matches without defeat for the hosts in Ligue 1 as they picked up points in draws with 7th placed Marseille and Lyon, as well as back-to-back wins against Reims and Strasbourg.

Although they started this new French domestic top flight season in poor fashion, losing both of their opening home matches of the season to Saint-Etienne and Bordeaux, the hosts have since recovered by putting together a morale-boosting 3-match unbeaten run prior to this evening’s encounter.

Of course, it looks highly likely that PSG will grab all three points here, but can Dijon keep things tight and avoid a heavy loss? PSG have beaten Dijon by 3+goals in just 1 of their 6 visits to the Stade Gaston-Gérard which was in their last visit, winning 4-0.

PSG Prediction – Can PSG extend lead to 11 points?

Runaway Ligue 1 leaders, PSG, hold an 8-point cushion at the top of the French top flight over 2nd placed Nantes prior to Friday night’s away trip to bottom club, Dijon, and the visitors will no doubt be seeking a fifth win on the trot here to open up a 11-point lead.

Although they suffered a surprise 2-0 defeat at home to Reims towards the end of September, PSG have since bounced back in style by recording 4 wins on the trot with victories gained over Bordeaux, Angers, Nice and Marseille, while overall, the Paris club have racked up 9 wins from their first 11 matches of the season already.

The visitors also lost away at Rennes in a surprising 2-1 defeat but have since responded in excellent fashion on their travels by putting together a 4-match winning streak, which includes earlier wins at Metz and Lyon.

However, PSG have won by a 3+goal margin in just 3 of their last 18 matches away from home in Ligue 1, so it may not be the thrashing that a lot of people are anticipating here.


Key-Facts – Dijon vs PSG

  • Dijon are unbeaten in their last 3 matches at home in Ligue 1
  • PSG have won by a 3+goal margin in just 3 of their last 18 away matches
  • PSG have beaten Dijon by 3+goals in just 1 of their 6 visits to the Stade Gaston-Gérard


Betting Tips Verdict

Dijon are obviously up against it here but I fancy the hosts to avoid a complete rout here.
