Paris Saint-Germain will travel to the capital city of the Burgundy region in eastern France, Dijon, to take on league bottom Dijon FCO on Saturday at 11 a.m. ET.

Paris failed to follow up their 4-1 UEFA Champions League round of 16 win over Barcelona last week after falling to Monaco 2-0 at Parc des Princes on Sunday. As a result, Olympique Lyonnais overtook the Parisians, who are now four points away from league-leaders Lille.

The Mauricio Pochettino era at PSG that began on Jan. 2, 2021, has seen its fair share of ups and downs. As a former PSG player with a respectable managerial resume, club owners felt that Pochettino was the right fit for the team. The Argentine joined the French club over a year after parting ways with Tottenham and has led the team to six wins, two losses and one draw in Ligue 1. That record, in the eyes of the team owners, is not what was expected from the star-studded side under its new manager. The pressure will intensify as the last 12 games of the season unfold, making clashes against teams like Dijon feel more difficult than what they really are for Pochettino and PSG.

As for the players, forward Killian Mbappe leads the league in goals – 16 – and goal contributions – 22 – this season. The 22-year-old is one of Europe’s most sought-after players and has been able to perform at the highest level even without Neymar, who has been sidelined by abductor and ankle injuries this season, by his side. Argentine veteran Angel di Maria is the league’s top assistant along with Lille’s Jonathan Bamba at eight assists. However, Italian forward Moise Kean, who arrived from Everton after an underwhelming season at Goodison Park, has been making the best of his chances averaging 0.73 goals per 90 minutes – third-best in the league – this season.

On the other hand, twentieth-place Dijon are eight points away from eighteenth place – playoff spot – after just two wins in 26 games. The Owls are on a six-game losing streak and have not won a game this year – nine games. 

On the bright side, Dijon will be thinking about nineteenth-place FC Lorient’s 3-2 comeback win against PSG on Jan. 31 as inspiration to take down the giants. Pochettino’s men were stunned late in the game with an 80th-minute equalizer and a game-winner in added time to secure the victory. Damage control will be a topic of conversation amongst Dijon’s coaching staff and players. Tidy and effective defending along with meaningful counterattacks with pacey forwards could be the way out for Dijon, and the way down for PSG.
