In 8 games, suffered the first goal 6 times and never managed to return the result. In the last 6 home games for all competitions there has been a period that stands out: suffered 3 of his 7 goals between the minutes (46′-60 ‘).
The home team leaves for the game with a draw to a ball against Strasbourg, thus totaling the fourth consecutive meeting without proving the taste of victory in the French championship: the only goal of the team was scored by Kwon Chang-Hoon. In this game coach Olivier Dall’Oglio should keep the team in 4-3-3 with Jeannot being the most offensive benchmark: this player is the great highlight of Dijon with 2 goals. For this game the coach can not use Cédric Yambéré, suspended, besides Tavares and Lautoa, players recovering from injury.

The Parisians come to this day with a huge win over Bordeaux, 6-2: the goals of the triumph were marked by Neymar, Cavani, Meunier, Draxler and Mbappé. Normally Unai Emery plays in 4-2-3-1 benefiting possession of the ball and organized attacks, especially through the corridors: Neymar and Mbappé are very fast and competent players in transporting the ball to the attack. The highlight of the visiting team is striker Edinson Cavani, who has scored eight goals so far. It seems that the coach has in doubt Thiago Silva, Thiago Motta, Verratti, Draxler and Pastore.
The most likely scenario for this game is the victory of the Parisian ensemble at half-time. The difference between the two teams of this meeting is abysmal, as Dijon occupy the last positions in the league table and PSG is the great leader of the competition. In addition, the PSG enjoys players with great technical quality, meaning if the game is complicated they are able to unlock in their favor. In this way, we admit that the visitors dominate the whole first part and finish with a triumph.
