Preview: Dijon vs. Paris Saint-Germain - prediction, team news, lineups

Sports Mole previews the Ligue 1 clash between Dijon and Paris Saint-Germain, including predictions, team news and possible lineups.

Paris Saint-Germain come into this one in fine form, dismantling Marseille at home by a 4-0 scoreline last time out as Kylian Mbappe and Mauro Icardi scored twice each.

Dijon, after a brief upturn in form, were beaten 2-0 away at Bordeaux - their second successive loss - as they resume their struggles in Ligue 1 this season.

Paris Saint-Germain's 4-0 demolition of Marseille last time out extended their winning run to six games across all competitions. The reigning Ligue 1 champions have won 12 of their 14 competitive fixtures so far this season.

However, they have really begun to hit a purple patch of late. Their last game was the fourth in a row in which they have scored at least four goals, netting a total of 17 in this run and conceding just once.

Prior to this string of clinical finishing, the Parisian outfit had only hit four or more goals in one of their previous eight fixtures.

On-loan striker Icardi's fine form has been crucial to this, with the Argentine scoring in each of his last five games and netting a total of seven in that run.

However, PSG have been solid at the back this season too, conceding just four goals in their 14 games across all competitions so far this term and keeping a staggering 11 clean sheets in that time.

On two of the three occasions in which they failed to shut the opponent out, they lost the game, conceding twice in both instances.

It will not make for pleasant reading for Dijon, who have not scored in their last three games in a row and have netted five all season, scoring more than once in just one outing.

Dijon have won just two games this term and find themselves rooted to the foot of the Ligue 1 table, three points from safety with 11 games gone.

PSG boss Thomas Tuchel is without a handful of stars but has no fresh injury concerns and should be able to name an unchanged side from the team that beat Marseille if he chooses.

In defence, right-back Thomas Meunier is still out but had lost his place to Colin Dagba anyway, so the Belgian's absence is unlikely to cause too many problems.

He joins on the treatment table long-term absentee Thilo Kehrer, whose versatility across the back four is being missed as a cover option, but he would also have been unlikely to start.

The two major omissions for Tuchel will be Idrissa Gueye and Neymar, both of whom have proven themselves key players for PSG.

Dijon head coach Olivier Delcourt has a fully-fit squad to choose from when the Ligue 1 champions visit the Stade Gaston Gerard.

Dijon possible starting lineup:
Gomis; Chafik, Manga, Coulibaly, Mendyl; Lautoa, Ndong; Balde, Pereira, Mavididi; Tavares

Paris Saint-Germain possible starting lineup:
Navas; Dagba, Silva, Kimpembe, Bernat; Herrera, Marquinhos, Verratti; Di Maria, Icardi, Mbappe

We say: Dijon 0-4 Paris Saint-Germain

This should prove a stroll in the park for PSG, who could continue their streak of scoring four or more times per match and extend Dijon's wait for a goal to four games.
