Commentary

That concludes our commentary of the Ligue 1 fixture between Dijon and PSG! We hope you’ve enjoyed it!
Dijon will look for a win on Wednesday when they face Brest, while PSG are in action again in midweek when they travel to face Bordeaux.
It was ultimately a comfortable outing for PSG, who fully deserve their 4-0 victory despite not needing to break a sweat. Kean’s opener after six minutes was a sign of things to come, as the visitors never relinquished their advantage. Mbappe added to his first-half goal from the spot six minutes after the restart with a lovely curling finish before Danilo’s goal from a corner - his first for PSG - condemned Dijon to their eighth-straight defeat. It could have been much worse for the hosts, who conceded twice more - only for Draxler to be given as offside on both occasions. It was a poor showing from Dijon, who stay in last place with the loss. PSG go into second, two points ahead of Lyon and one back of Lille ahead of the rest of Ligue 1’s fixtures tomorrow.
90' + 2' FULL-TIME: DIJON 0-4 PSG. 
90' + 1' The fourth official indicates two minutes will be added to the end of the 90 for stoppages. 
90' WHAT A SAVE! In his first real bit of action this match, Navas flies across his line to palm away a shot bound for the top corner by Dobre - putting it out for a corner.  
E. Michut
Danilo Pereira
89' Danilo looks to have picked up a knock shortly after scoring - which forces Pochettino’s hand. Michut comes in for his debut - replacing the injured midfielder.
86' Assale looks to get on the end of a chipped pass from midfield, but the striker makes contact with Kehrer instead of the ball during his audacious overhead kick attempt - giving PSG a free-kick to clear their lines.
84' Dijon are the team with the most games played at home without a single win among the European Top 5 Leagues in 2020/21 (13 – D6 L7). DFCO have only scored one goal in their last nine Ligue 1 home games (1-1 v Strasbourg on 24th January).
J. Draxler
Assist
82' He may have had two goals chalked off, but at least Draxler gets on the score sheet with an assist - as his corner found the head of Danilo for PSG's fourth. 
Danilo Pereira
Goal
82' DANILO SCORES HIS FIRST FOR PSG! A simple finish from a corner, Danilo rises highest to nod home the delivery after Racioppi came off his line and missed his punch. It’s 4-0 now for Paris!
I. Gueye
Rafinha
82' Rafinha is replaced by Gueye, as Pochettino looks to seal the result.
81' Pochettino looks to be readying a substitute as he aims to secure PSG’s first clean sheet in the league since early February.
79' The match has been brought right down to a walking pace as the substitutions have really slowed the tempo down. You get the feeling that PSG will continue to search for another goal, but not at the risk of conceding at the other end.
77' GREAT SAVE! A poor pass out from the goalkeeper allows Sarabia to get onto the ball inside the Dijon penalty area, but Racioppi makes amends for his earlier mistake with a very nice diving catch.
F. Sammaritano
E. Ebimbe
75' Ebimbe is replaced by Sammaritano with 15 minutes left to play. 
74' DRAXLER SCORES BUT HE’S OFFSIDE AGAIN! Marquinhos plays a fantastic ball over the top of Dijon’s defence for Draxler, who takes the pass down before chipping it over the head of the oncoming Racioppi. It won't stand though, as the wide player is once again unable to hold his run.
Pablo Sarabia
M. Kean
72' PSG take this time to make a swap of their own, sending Sarabia on in Kean's place. 
J. Marié
P. Diop
71' Linares is forced into a substitution with 20 minutes left in the match as Cheikh will not be able to continue. Marie is his replacement.
69' Dijon restart play from a free-kick just outside their penalty area, as Rafinha was adjudged to be the offending party. Cheikh has not returned to the pitch as he looks to be in real pain.
67' Cheikh is down receiving treatment after his outstretched leg caught Rafinha in full-stride. It's an awkward coming together between the two, with the Dijon player looking worse off. 
65' Four of Dijon’s six goals in Ligue 1 in 2021 have been scored by defenders (Coulibaly twice, Ecuele Manga and Muzinga), as many as in their 25 goals in 2020.
63' Marquinhos smashes a clearance off of Dobre from inside his own penalty area, winning Navas a goal-kick after a bit of pressure from Dijon.
M. Dobre
J. Panzo
61' The second change is a forward-thinking swap as midfielder Dobre comes in to replace Panzo - a defender.
R. Assalé
M. Konaté
61' Dijon make a couple changes on the hour, with the first coming in attack. Konate is replaced by Assale. 
59' Really poor on the near touchline from Muzinga, who looks to receive a Celina pass during a phase of attacking play, but the wing-back takes his eye off of the ball and loses it - gifting PSG a chance to clear the danger with a throw-in. 
57' A good linkup between Panzo and Konate in midfield looks to get Muzinga free, but it’s cleaned up easily as Kehrer glides back to pick up the misplaced ball. 
55' Celina takes Dijon’s corner towards Ecuele Manga, who gets great contact on the delivery but sends the chance wide of the goal.
53' Play is stopped momentarily for Ecuele Manga, who is down on the far touchline receiving treatment after a heavy challenge from Kehrer. 
Rafinha
Assist
51' The change of formation has certainly helped Rafinha, who was allowed to move further up the pitch in order to impact the attack. He's done exactly that six minutes after the restart, assisting Mbappe on PSG's third goal. 
K. Mbappé
Goal
51' TWO FOR MBAPPE, THREE FOR PSG! Another simple goal for the visitors, who are running rampant. Kehrer finds Rafinha in acres of space just outside the penalty area, before the former Barcelona midfielder slips it through for Mbappe. The France international opts for a first-time hit with the left, wrapping his boot around it and beating Racioppi with pace and accuracy! 3-0!
50' Ebimbe takes up a good position inside the penalty area, looking to find a team-mate at the far post - but the move comes to an abrupt halt as the midfielder is flagged for offside. 
48' Mbappe squares a pass from the left of the penalty area for Kean, who mistimes his side-footed effort, giving it right to the defender marking him. It’s a poor effort from the goal scorer - who could have doubled his tally.
46' PSG get the match restarted from the kick-off! 
Pochettino will be hoping for smooth sailing in the second 45 minutes, as his side are in an enviable position; able to either pursue more goals or hold the lead they’ve already accumulated. With a number of players missing through injury, perhaps the coach will take this time to shuffle his pack and give some experience to those who don’t feature as often. For Dijon, they have only one option as they’ll be forced to open up and go for broke in the second half, looking to overturn a large deficit. 
It’s been a comfortable first-half for Paris Saint-Germain, who take a 2-0 lead into half-time at the Stade Gaston-Gerard. Kean’s opener after just six minutes put Dijon on the back foot immediately; a position they would be in for the entirety of the opening 45 minutes. Mbappe’s conversion from the penalty spot gave the visitors a bit of insurance after a half-hour - which looks enough to take the three points. Dijon for their part have been poor, failing to trouble Navas at all, while maintaining less than 40% possession; though it could have been worse as Draxler’s goal was eventually chalked off for offside.
45' + 1' HALF-TIME: DIJON 0-2 PSG. 
45' The fourth official signals that one minute will be added to the end of the half for stoppages. 
44' PSG take a corner short to Draxler, but Rafinha’s eventual shot is blocked at the edge of the 18-yard box.
42' With under five minutes to go in the half, it looks as though PSG will maintain their clean sheet, as Navas has yet to face a shot. 
40' Dijon have lost their last six Ligue 1 games, the longest current run and the longest run in the club’s top-flight history.
38' Dijon have made slow progress in the first half since going a goal behind, making their way closer and closer to Navas’ goal - but the penalty conceded will undo all that good work. With a bit of insurance in their back pocket, it seems unlikely that the league’s second-best defence will concede from this position.
36' DRAXLER SCORES BUT IT’S OFFSIDE! Mbappe gets behind the defence after a lovely throughball from Herrera and squares it to Draxler, who finishes comfortably into an open net. The goal won't stand though, as Mbappe was deemed to be offside during the initial pass in the sequence.
M. Kean
Yellow Card
33' Kean is the first PSG player to be booked, after his cynical tug back on Cheikh in midfield.
K. Mbappé
Penalty Goal
32' NO DOUBT ABOUT IT! Mbappe steps up with confidence and sends the goalkeeper the wrong way, giving PSG a 2-0 advantage! 
B. Celina
Yellow Card
31' Celina is shown a yellow card for his handball inside the penalty area. 
30' PENALTY TO PSG! Rafinha sends a pass across the face of Dijon’s 18-yard box for Kehrer, who hits his shot at the first time of asking. Celina is the Dijon man covering, but he blocks the full-back's effort with his hand! It’s right in front of the referee - who points to the spot immediately!
29' Great defending from Panzo wins his side a goal-kick after the defender is able to send his clearance off of the onrushing Kehrer and behind his net.
27' After going a goal ahead, PSG have really slowed the tempo of the match down. They’re doing well to control possession, though there is a distinct lack of intensity in the visitors when going forward.
E. Ebimbe
Yellow Card
25' Ebimbe is shown the first yellow card of the match for a reckless and mistimed slide tackle on Danilo.
23' Dijon have lost 10 of their 11 Ligue 1 games against Paris (W1), never keeping a clean sheet against them (37 goals conceded, an average of 3.4 per game).
21' Diallo is again looking to feed Kean, who turns with real skill to get by Coulibaly. The centre-back makes up for his earlier misstep, however, taking up a good position to shield the ball out for a goal-kick.
19' Panzo goes for a rare run down the flank before serving Muzinga, but the eventual cross is a poor one and cleared easily by Marquinhos for a throw-in.
17' PSG’s 4-3-3 looks to have turned into a 4-2-3-1, with Herrera and Danilo holding - which allows Rafinha to step further up the pitch in a playmaker role. Draxler and Mbappe have held their positions on the flanks - both playing to serve the furthest player forward; Kean.
15' Racioppi comes flying off his line to get to a loose ball inside his 18-yard box before Mbappe, but he spills his initial catch. Panzo is there to help out his team-mate though, hoofing the ball down the pitch to give his side time to readjust.
13' Paris see no need to rush as they hold possession in midfield, cycling the ball between Danilo and Herrera. Their opponents will be forced to chase, which can only help PSG in the later stages of the match.
11' The set-piece is taken short to Mbappe, but the visitors are unable to find any room as they’re forced to turn backwards and bring Navas into play - looking to restart from defence.
9' Coulibaly takes Mbappe down on the left flank, giving PSG an opportunity to heap more pressure on the hosts.
8' Dijon have quite a mountain to climb if they wish to take anything from the match. The lowest-scoring team in the league, they’ve only managed four goals in their last five matches; which doesn’t bode well against PSG’s stout defence.
A. Diallo
Assist
6' Diallo gets the assist from right-back after playing an incisive pass into the area for Kean. 
M. Kean
Goal
6' PSG SCORE AFTER SIX MINUTES! Diallo plays a simple pass into the penalty area for Kean - who feints one way to open up space before poking the ball past the keeper into the corner of the goal from six yards out! 1-0!
5' Diallo plays a dangerous pass through into the penalty area for Mbappe, who is unable to get the ball out from under his feet as Racioppi comes off his line to make an awkward clearance.
4' The set-piece is taken short to Mbappe, but Dijon get their defensive covering correct and win possession back near their own corner flag.
3' Mbappe gets into a good crossing position on the left and chips it to the far post for Draxler - but it’s turned behind for a corner by a marking defender.
1' Dijon get the match underway from the kick-off! 
Pochettino makes five changes of his own to the PSG XI that lost 2-0 to Monaco last weekend. Kehrer and Diallo replace Florenzi and Kurzawa in defence, the latter of the two pushing Kimpembe to left-back in order to play in the centre. Rafinha and Danilo are preferred to Paredes and Gueye in midfield, while Mauro Icardi drops out of the side for Draxler. 
Dijon make five changes to the side that lost 2-1 to Lens last time out, as Linares goes for wholesale changes in midfield and attack. A trio of Celina, Ebimbe and Cheikh replaces Marie, Wesley Lautoa and Ibrahim Ndong in the middle of the park, while Konate and Balde are preferred to Mounir Chouair and the suspended Aboubakar Kamara at striker.
PSG SUBS: Xavi Simons, Sergio Rico, Idrissa Gueye, Edouard Michut, Mitchel Bakker, Layvin Kurzawa, Colin Dagba, Pablo Sarabia, Timothee Pembele.
PSG XI (4-3-3): Keylor Navas; Thilo Kehrer, Marquinhos, Abdou Diallo, Presnel Kimpembe; Ander Herrera, Danilo Pereira, Rafinha; Julian Draxler, Moise Kean, Kylian Mbappe.
DIJON SUBS: Arthur Zagre, Yassine Benzia, Anibal Chala, Jordan Marie, Mihai-Alexandru Dobre, Frederic Sammaritano, Fouad Chafik, Roger Assale, Saturnin Allagbe.
DIJON XI (5-3-2): Anthony Racioppi; Ngonda Muzinga, Jonathan Panzo, Bruno Ecuele Manga, Senou Coulibaly, Sacha Boey; Bersant Celina, Eric Ebimbe, Pape Cheikh; Moussa Konate, Mama Balde.
With 20 minutes to go before kick-off, let's take a look at how the two sides will line up today - starting with our hosts! 
Mauricio Pochettino looks to get his side back on track with a win after last week’s 2-0 defeat at home to Monaco. Paris sit third in what is the closest title race in France in quite some time - four points back of pace-setters Lille. With the best attack in the league, there’s no doubt that PSG will be looking to hit the back of the net early and often, despite the continued absence of Neymar and Angel Di Maria.
Dijon have 12 matches to make up the nine-point gap that separates relegation and safety, as David Linares’ side sit rock bottom with just under a third of the season left to play. On the back of seven straight losses and 10 matches without a win - it will take a herculean effort from the hosts if they are to beat PSG for the first time since 2019 (losing by an aggregate score of 14-1 since then).
