PSG vs Dijon build-up, pre-match team news & previous line-ups:
Thomas Tuchel’s side exhibited signs of rustiness in midweek having reached the Champions League final last season, and were condemned to another last-gasp defeat against Man Utd at the Parc des Princes, with Marcus Rashford sealing a 2-1 win in Group H.
The Parisians must now avert their gaze to domestic matters and will look to maintain their perfect home record against basement club Dijon, which currently stands at five wins from five games. In fact, they have only ever lost once to the Burgundy club, a 2-1 defeat in November 2019.
Dijon are yet to win a league game this season in seven attempts, so far drawing two and already five points from safety. So, unless Stephane Jobard can mastermind an unexpected giant-killing, then they will remain rooted to the foot of the table.
- PSG (vs Man Utd): Navas; Florenzi, Diallo, Kimpembe, Kurzawa*; Herrera, Pereira, Gueye*; Di Maria*, Neymar, Mbappe.
- Dijon (vs Rennes): Allagbe; Chafik, Ecuele Manga, Panzo, Chala; Ndong, Lautoa; Dina-Ebimbe, Chouiar, Sammaritano; Balde.
Angel Di Maria and Layvin Kurzawa remain suspended for PSG, while Mauro Icardi, Juan Bernat, Thilo Kehrer, Leandro Paredes and Marco Verratti continue their respective recoveries on the sidelines. Idrissa Gueye also picked up a hamstring injury in midweek and could spend several weeks out of action.
Senou Couliably has returned for Dijon but is unlikely to start.
Players to watch:
- PSG: He fired a blank in midweek but Kylian Mbappe has been on the scoresheet in back-to-back Ligue 1 games and in Dijon he faces an opponent against whom he seems to enjoy considerable success against. Indeed Mbappe has been involved in nine goals against Dijon in the league (seven goals, two assists), while he has also directly contributed to at least one goal in his previous seven Ligue 1 matches. Jobard must take inspiration from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s defensive triumph in Paris, or face the prospect of an Mbappe masterclass.
- Dijon: The likes of Victor Lindelof and Axel Tuanzebe garnered the plaudits on Tuesday, and Jobard has two former Premier League centre-backs who could look to perform similar heroics this weekend. Bruno Ecuele Manga, who plied his trade at Cardiff between 2014 and 2019, has made 44 clearances in Ligue 1 this season, at least nine more than any other player, and will look to form a solid defensive partnership with current England U21 international Jonathan Panzo. The task will not be easy, particularly for a side yet to keep a clean sheet, but the experience of Manga, coupled with the youthful vibrance of Panzo, could work well to stifle the attacking presence of Neymar and co.
