Dijon form and stats

Dijon's results here at Stade Gaston-Gérard in the Ligue 1 have been very modest with 0 victories, 6 draws and 7 defeats. Dijon are slowly digging their own grave here at Stade Gaston-Gérard with the depressing streak of not having won a home league game in 13 attempts. The last victory here came in the Angers SCO match. It's trouble wherever Dijon are playing these days as they have suffered six straight defeats now, regardless of arena. They really need to get back to winning ways.

No payout for Dijon in their previous match, an away game at Lens that ended in defeat 1-2. Preceding that match was a defeat to Nîmes (0-2).

Despite playing at their own arena the home team are massive underdogs in this game. The home fans will enjoy their drinks and snacks knowing that the chances of a positive outcome are very slim. When Dijon have been in this position before, they have won one, drawn zero and lost three from four games. two defeats by at least two goals.

There's a new game coming up fairly quickly for Dijon as they are travelling to their away game against Brest in the Ligue 1. That match is four days after this one.

Dijon have scored 4 goals here in 13 league matches, a depressing statistic. Dijon have conceded 14 in these home matches.

Paris Saint Germain form and stats

The visitors, who have the most scored goals (57) in Ligue 1, are W7-D2-L3 on the road this term. That's in the Ligue 1.

Paris failed to get anything from their last game, a Ligue 1 home match vs Monaco (placed 4th) that ended with defeat 0-2. Preceding that game was the away Champions League victory against Barcelona with the score of 4-1.

Again, the away team are huge favourites in this match and any other result would be an upset.

This check revealed 15 matches with eleven wins as expected, two draws and two surprise home wins. The favourites won eight of these games by at least two goals.

There might be some complaints about the fixture list from the Paris manager M. Pochettino Trossero as the team has another away game coming up in only four days, this time against Bordeaux.

The travelling fans enjoy Paris's attacking play in away games, having scored 23 goals in 12 league matches away. Paris are defending well in their away games, having conceded only 9 times in 12 matches. For more goal statistics, check out the Statistics tab above.
